HELIX MC Plus Multicollector Noble Gas Mass Spectrometer
The Thermo Scientific HELIX MC Plus Multicollector Noble Gas Mass Spectrometer is a new state-of-the-art multicollector noble gas mass spectrometer.
Thermo Scientific HELIX MC Plus has been designed as the most advanced static vacuum mass spectrometer available using state-of-the-art technology for the isotopic analysis of small samples of all the noble gases.
The HELIX MC Plus mass spectrometer is a high resolution magnetic sector mass spectrometer designed for high precision isotopic analysis of small samples of the noble gases. It comprises a magnetic sector analyzer with 35cm 120° extended geometry ion optics. The geometry combines excellent ion optic performance with two-direction focusing and high dispersion in a compact footprint.
One of the key features of the HELIX MC Plus instrument is its high resolution capability. The instrument utilizes a large radius geometry coupled to some novel ion optical elements never used on a SVMS system before. The instrument also utilizes a new 10kV capable X & Z focused Nier type bright source, giving sensitivities in excess of 1 x 10-3 Amps/Torr at a source emission of less than 1mA.
