Thermo Fisher Scientific Announces Enhanced iCAP 6200 Optical Emission Spectrometer
Product News Mar 22, 2011
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., has announced the enhanced Thermo Scientific iCAP 6200 inductively coupled optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES). The iCAP 6200 ICP-OES now incorporates a wider wavelength range of 175-847nm. This enables users to measure a broader range of analytes during multi-element analyses and access more sensitive wavelengths for improved analyte detection capability.
The iCAP 6200 ICP-OES is a simultaneous, dual-view instrument that provides a low-cost alternative to flame atomic absorption (Flame AA). The instrument is a simple, multi-element analysis solution for laboratories that perform routine analyses of up to 100 samples per day.
With its enhanced specifications, the iCAP 6200 can now measure sulfur as part of a multi-element method in addition to the most sensitive mercury, thallium, carbon, tin, phosphorous, arsenic and iodine wavelengths.
Enhanced analytical performance is combined with award-winning design features that reduce running costs and simplify operation, making the iCAP 6200 ICP-OES an ideal solution for first- time users of the technique.
Designed for a wide variety of applications, including food and consumer safety, environmental, mining and WEEE/RoHS testing, the iCAP 6200 ICP-OES is a powerful and cost-efficient trace elemental analysis solution. The instrument features an optimized gas distribution system to minimize gas consumption and dramatically reduce running costs.
These cost-saving features include a unique torch design that reduces plasma gas consumption and an optimized plasma interface gas flow that consumes only one liter per minute.
The compact iCAP 6200 ICP-OES requires minimal bench space and ensures excellent signal stability, analyte detection and wide dynamic range. The instrument includes a range of pre-loaded method templates, developed to enable protocol-compliant sample analysis and unlimited access to a new dynamic method library, hosted online at www.thermoscientific.com/iteva-software. These templates complement the pre-optimized sample introduction specifications of the instrument, enabling simple, consistent operation and powerful analytical performance for users at any level.
