Thermo’s iCAP 6000 Series features a close coupled optical design with orthogonal fore optics.

Thermo Electron Corporation has announced that its iCAP 6000 Series of ICP emission spectrometers has won the Gold Award at the Instrument Business Outlook (IBO) Design Awards 2006.

The IBO award is for excellence in industrial design of analytical and life science instruments, portable analytical instruments and laboratory equipment.

Each year, IBO honors those instruments that demonstrate the most original, functional and user-friendly industrial design, thus being aesthetically appealing while enhancing the end-user's experience.

Thermo’s iCAP 6000 Series features a close coupled optical design with orthogonal fore optics, which increases the amount of light reaching the detector.

Additionally, the design of a large 270o door allows unrestricted access to a large sample compartment and peristaltic pump, while the inner enclosure has a large viewing window for convenient observation of the plasma.

Thermo has utilized integrated structural castings for the spectrometer design of its iCAP 6000 Series to ensure precise location of components and the mechanical strength necessary for long-term optical stability.

Furthermore, a design of "plug and play" semi-demountable torch ensures automatic gas connections and alignment with the optical system.

Thermo’s iCAP 6000 Series has also recently received an honorable mention at the Editor’s Choice Awards at the PITTCON® 2006, the largest North American conference and exposition on laboratory science and instrumentation.
