Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the launch of the Agilent 8800 triple quadrupole ICP-MS (ICP-QQQ), the first and only instrument of its kind.

The new ICP-QQQ system offers improved performance compared to single quadrupole ICP-MS, and provides MS/MS operation for controlled and consistent interference removal in reaction mode.

ICP-QQQ also addresses high-end application requirements, with flexible analysis capabilities unavailable on single quadrupole machines.

The unique QQQ configuration of the Agilent 8800 controls the ions that enter the collision/reaction cell, so the reaction conditions remain consistent and predictable even if the sample composition changes.

The new instrument provides turnkey operation in a range of novel reaction modes, delivering effective and consistent interference removal for problematic elements in difficult samples.

The Agilent 8800 can also be set up to operate like a single-quad ICP-MS, offering the security of replicating existing and familiar methodologies.

“Agilent’s 8800 ICP-QQQ retains the ease of use of a standard ICP-MS and provides better detection limits for phosphorus-containing and sulfur-containing compounds measured using LC-ICP-MS,” said Dr. Jorge Ruiz Encinar, department of physical and analytical chemistry, University of Oviedo, Spain.

The 8800 ICP-QQQ analyzes problematic elements in samples across a range of applications, including:

• Ultra-trace analysis of elements that suffer interferences in high-purity samples (Ge and As in HCl; V and Ti in H2SO4, and more).
• Reliable low-level measurement of selenium and arsenic in soil, rock and plant materials, where both polyatomic and doubly charged interferences may occur.
• Quantitative analysis of sulfur and phosphorus in DNA and protein/peptides for life-science applications.

“The Agilent 8800 ICP-QQQ is a revolutionary new ICP-MS instrument, offering maximum flexibility for high-end research and for solving difficult analytical problems,” said Philip Binns, Agilent vice president for spectroscopy products.

Binns continued, “The 8800 joins Agilent’s remarkable 7700 Series ICP-MS, which remains the benchmark for high-performance single-quadrupole ICP-MS. With the 8800, 7700 and recently introduced 4100 MP-AES as part of our portfolio, Agilent’s technology leadership in atomic spectroscopy is stronger than ever.”
