  • Unique sheath gas feature for unrivaled stability on samples with High Total Dissolved Solids content, up to 30% dissolved solids
  • Continuous wavelength coverage from 120 to 800 nm with Far UV option for improved sensitivity for halogens analysis or alternative wavelengths
  • Unmatched spectral resolution minimizing interferences with <5 pm for wavelengths in the range 120-320 nm
  • Optional dual grating system, offering <6pm resolution up to 450 nm for line-rich matrices such as rare earth elements, geological or precious metals applications
  • Unique HiStab device to achieve exceptional stability for demanding applications
  • Patented HDD® detection providing sub-ppb to percent level in a single analysis
  • Dynamic range of up to 10 orders of magnitude using Image
  • Optional 0.5m or 1m polychromator for simultaneous analysis

Image Navigator

  • Image Navigator is designed for semi-quantitative analysis thanks to full spectrum acquisition.
  • Full spectrum display with multiple spectra display capability
  • Visual comparison with overlaid spectra display capability
  • Automated qualitative and semi-quantitative analysis

MASTER, find easily the right wavelengths

  • MASTER facilitates the method development by performing automatically selection of appropriate lines according to the concentration range of each element and the matrix. MASTER is based on the proprietary S3-base developed with real ICP spectra acquisitions and containing more than 50,000 wavelengths identified with full spectroscopic data.

    • Automatic wavelength selection
    • Synthetic spectra display
    • Sensitivity, dynamic range and interference level criteria to adjust line selection

S3-base viewer

  • S3-base viewer displays the entire S3-base database to help with identification of emission lines in unknown samples.

    • Full S3-base database available
    • Display of analyte wavelength and its relative intensity and detection limit
    • Display of the list of potential emission lines, including plasma inherent lines, in the vicinity of a selected wavelength with their relative intensities and detection limits
    • Graphic display of analyte emission line and potential emission lines for facilitated identification
