Breakthrough ICP-MS and MP-AES Platforms

Breakthrough ICP-MS and MP-AES Platforms

Agilent Technologies Inc. recently introduced the 7900 Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) and the 4200 Microwave Plasma – Atomic Emission Spectrometer (MP-AES). Newly streamlined operational features make them ideal for a wider range of challenging applications.

The 7900 ICP-MS is a complete redesign, sharing a few key components from the 7700 series. It has been engineered and optimised to provide elemental laboratories with a powerful and easy-to-use quadrupole ICP-MS solution.

The 7900 features:

  • Ultra-high-matrix introduction technology that enables laboratories to measure samples containing up to 25% total dissolved solids, 10 times higher than the current benchmark
  • A novel interface design, optimised expansion-stage vacuum system and new orthogonal detector system (ODS), which reduces background and improves sensitivity. This dramatically improves signal to noise for tenfold lower detection limits than any other quadrupole ICP-MS system
  •  A wide dynamic range of quadrupole ICP-MS – patented ODS technology that delivers up to 11 orders of magnitude dynamic range, from sub-ppt to percent-level concentrations. This enables users to measure trace elements and majors in the same run. It also eliminates analyte-specific tuning and simplifies method development
  • Redesigned MassHunter software features a more intuitive user interface along with powerful method automation capabilities. The new method set-up wizard automatically builds methods based on answers to a simple user questionnaire.
