iCAP 6300 ICP Spectrometer

The use of Inductively Coupled Plasma source (ICP) and Atomic Absorption (AA) are the accepted and most powerful techniques for the analysis of and quantification of trace elements in both solid and liquid samples. Applications range from routine environmental analyses to the materials industry, geological applications to clinical research and from the food industry to the semiconductor industry. The iCAP 6300-Duo can simultaneously detect 66 Elements with detection limits less than 1μg/L. The plasma is easier to ignite and can operate with a much wider range of sample types. The Duo instrument provides flexibility, with extreme detection limits achievable in axial mode and reduced interference in Radial mode.
