Spectro Analytical Instruments has delivered the 10,000th SPECTROMAXx metal analyser to Geely Automobile, a Chinese automotive and motorcycle manufacturer based in Hangzhou.
Edwards has introduced the air-cooled nXLi dry vacuum pump range, which provides a small footprint with quiet operation.
Nu Instruments has released Sapphire, a collision/reaction cell, multi-collector inductively coupled mass spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS). The instrument has a high-energy path that enables it to be used as a traditional multi-collector ICP-MS with no compromise in performance, as well as a low-energy path in which the ion beam is directed through a hexapole collision cell for the removal of the ICP-...
A new simultaneous ICP-OES instrument that provides multi-elemental inorganic analyses for high volume laboratories testing complex environmental, chemical and industrial samples.
Achema 2018 is inviting contributions to the Achema Congress and the PRAXISforums; deadline 22 September 2017.
A cooperation between Messe München India and the Indian Pharma Machinery Manufacturers Association (IPMMA) will collocate events jointly representing 600+ global and Indian companies.
Inorganic Ventures now offers custom ICP and IC calibration standards in smaller, 30 mL volumes. They have up to a three-year shelf life in sealed transpiration control technology bag. The smaller volumes offer total cost savings, ship as non-hazardous, produce less lab waste, enable simplified inventory management and increase confidence by reducing the likelihood of contamination.
Designed to weigh and dispense borate flux for the preparation of glass disks for XRF and solutions for ICP. There are three different weighing modes and the smart flux flow software make the system adaptable to the user’s needs. The system is easy to use with an intuitive touchscreen interface and one-touch operation. No training is required nor are calculations required to determine flux...
Princeton Instruments’ new SpectraPro HRS-300 high-resolution imaging spectrograph includes spectral deconvolution technology.
Easy-to-use system developed to support ultralow detection limits, and has improved interference removal capabilities. Users can switch between single and triple quadrupole modes within a single multi-element experiment. The instrument requires minimal user maintenance and includes QCell flatapole technology, a small volume collision/reaction cell with flatapole rods, and a dedicated gas...
Now available for ICP and ICP-MS grade single element standards. As well as the potential for less waste, the smaller volume makes shipping quicker and cheaper.
Range of elemental impurities CRMs to meet the new method’s permissible daily exposure (PDE) levels. There is also an internal standard solution optimised for best ICP-MS results with pharmaceutical samples. Available in a cost effective and conveniently packaged kit.
New company producing hollow cathode lamps for many atomic absorption instruments. Cathodes are designed with either a pure element or compound to produce the best sputter rate at the lowest current.
The D-Torch is now available for the PerkinElmer Avio 200. It is a direct replacement and has the same self-aligning feature. It is designed to reduce running costs associated with torch wear when analysing challenging sample such as organic solvents, fusions and samples containing high total dissolved solids or hydrofluoric acid.
New version of the DC (direct connection) nebuliser which has a UniFit sample connector which slides easily over the sample arm and an argon connector configured to connect directly to your make of ICP spectrometer. It uses an inert, metal-free argon connector and has a ratchet fitting that ensures leak-free gas connection.
A programmable, temperature-controlled cyclonic spray chamber which now has an improved thermodynamic design providing an extended temperature range and faster cool-down. Offers compact and maintenance-free sample introduction for all ICP spectrometers.
Handheld LIBS analyser customised to provide quantitative measurements. It is of rugged construction and IP54-rated with a battery life of >4 h. The laser beam is rastered to sample an area of ~300 µm. Custom calibrations are available for applications such as Li content in batteries, metal in alloys and the composition of catalysts, minerals or ceramics.
This work builds on our previous study of arsenic species in apple juice by incorporating several improvements to the methodology and exploring the analysis more deeply.
Spectro Analytical Instruments’ new SpectroPort portable arc/spark optical emission spectroscopy metals analyser is as fast as a handheld XRF analyser.
PerkinElmer's new ICP-MS system
This article is is a fascinating look into the use of laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry in forensic examination of glass fragments. These are often associated with crime scenes and easily “attach” to any people near them. Thus, they can be used to link criminals to their crime and to provide information on where a glass fragment might have originated.
