Thermo Scientific iCAP TQ ICP-MS has been recently launched by Thermo Fisher Scientific at Pittcon 2017. It offers advanced interference removal for analysing challenging matrices while delivering reliable, reproducible data and will be beneficial for laboratories working with challenging matrices from a new triple quadrupole inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) as it is designed to combine power and simplicity in a single instrument.
It is easy-to-use system, developed to support ultralow detection limits, offers advanced interference removal capabilities designed to overcome interferences common in challenging matrices. It is also designed to provide reliable and reproducible data for a range of applications.
Adrian Holley, marketing director, trace elemental analysis, Thermo Fisher said, "There's a growing need to push the boundaries of detection, especially in metallurgy, clinical research, pharmaceutical compliance, environmental science, food safety and geoscience."
He also added, "Our customers want the detection limits and accuracy of triple quadrupole technology with the ease of a single quad, and the iCAP TQ ICP-MS delivers that combination of power and simplicity."
The new iCAP TQ ICP-MS allows users to switch between single and triple quadrupole modes in a single multi-element experiment so that laboratories can keep their existing workflow as well as add new capabilities over time.
Jörg Bettmer, PhD, assistant professor, department of physical and analytical chemistry, University of Oviedo, Spain said, "Triple quadrupole technology ICP-MS is enabling us to overcome research challenges in sample analysis that we were unable to address with single quad technology."
