PerkinElmer Inc. has announced its Optima 8x00 series of Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometers (ICP-OES).
According to the company, the Optima 8x00 ICP-OES platform offers improved performance and reduced operating costs for analysis of environmental, food, pharmaceutical, product safety, and geochemical samples.
The spectrometers feature eNeb sample introduction which, by generating a constant flow of small uniform droplets, enables the spectrometer to deliver high sensitivity and instrument stability. The spectrometers also feature a new radio frequency (RF) generator technology—the Flat Plate Plasma Technology. This RF generator features maintenance-free plasma induction plates in place of the traditional helical load coil. The generator reduces argon consumption since no cooling is required. The spectrometers also include a PlasmaCam Viewing Camera, which offers continuous viewing of the plasma.
