New systems provide unprecedented performance, value, ease of use
Johannesburg : January 6, 2014 Agilent Technologies Inc. recently introduced the 7900 Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) and the 4200 Microwave Plasma – Atomic Emission Spectrometer (MP-AES), the latest in a series of groundbreaking technologies featured in Agilent’s portfolio of spectroscopy solutions.
The 7900 ICP-MS and 4200 MP-AES are the most sophisticated, user-friendly elemental analysis technologies available today. Newly streamlined operational features also make them ideal for a wider range of challenging applications and more accessible to a broader spectrum of laboratory personnel.
7900 ICP-MS: A New Standard in Quadrupole ICP-MS Performance
The 7900 ICP-MS is a complete redesign, sharing only a few key components from the world’s bestselling 7700 Series. The 7900 has been engineered and optimized to provide elemental laboratories with the industry’s most powerful and easy-to-use quadrupole ICP-MS solution.
Unprecedented matrix tolerance – Ultra-high-matrix introduction technology enables laboratories to measure samples containing up to 25 percent total dissolved solids, 10 times higher than the current benchmark held by the 7700 ICP-MS limit. This enables direct measurement of sample types previously inaccessible by ICP-MS.
Enhanced trace-level detection – A novel interface design, optimized expansion-stage vacuum system and new orthogonal detector system (ODS) reduce background and improve sensitivity, dramatically improving signal to noise for 10-fold lower detection limits than any quadrupole ICP-MS system available today.
Widest dynamic range of any quadrupole ICP-MS – Patented ODS technology delivers up to 11 orders of magnitude dynamic range, from sub-ppt to percent-level concentrations, which enables users to measure trace elements and majors in the same run. An industry-first capability, this eliminates analyte-specific tuning and simplifies method development, virtually eliminating over-range results.
Redesigned : MassHunter software features a simpler, more intuitive user interface along with powerful method automation capabilities. Another industry first, the new method set-up wizard makes method development easier than ever, automatically building methods based on answers to a simple user questionnaire.
