  • 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

Brine Analysis with the Ultima Expert ICP-OES
Brine Analysis with the Ultima Expert ICP-OES
The analysis of brines can be easily performed using the Ultima Expert. Low detection limits are obtained due to the ability of the system to perform the analysis without any dilution thanks to the 3 mm i.d. injector associated with radial viewing and the Total Plasma view that minimize matrix effects and enhance sensitivity. The sheath gas device allows perfect short and long-term stability of the system for routine analysis, without any internal standard, recalibration, or drift correction procedure. Good long term stability allows the use of the best plasma parameters and integration times for enhanced performance.
