Standard Features

Sample Introduction System:

  • 4-channel, mini peristaltic pump with a unique drain sensor, provides smooth, low noise signals and safe operation
  • Open-architecture sample introduction system enables easy access to peristaltic pump, nebulizer, spray chamber and torch
  • Bayonet torch fitting for easy assembly/disassembly
  • Clip-together sample introduction system for easy reconfiguration and maintenance
  • Enhanced Matrix Tolerance (EMT) torch design improves the handling of high-matrix samples
  • Optical drain sensor detects liquid flow from the spray chamber and automatically switches the plasma off in case of incorrect drainage, saving samples, gas and power
  • Choice of Radial or Duo (Axial and Radial) plasma viewing

Plasma and RF Generator:

  • Robust swing frequency, solid-state RF plasma generator efficiently couples with any sample type
  • Duo (axial and radial) or Radial plasma viewing

Optical System:

  • Low purge gas flow rates for the optical system reduce running costs
  • Innovative high-transmission optical design for exceptional sensitivity
  • High-resolution echelle spectrometer increases accuracy by reducing spectral overlap
