The Thermo Scientific ™ iCAP ™ PRO Series ICP-OES combines powerful multi-element capability with flexibility so your lab is ready for any challenge. Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) also referred to as inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) is an analytical technique used for the detection of chemical elements.
Advanced technology combines optimal performance with flexibility. Exceed the analysis requirements of any substance from drinking water to crude oil. An ideal instrument for new ICP-OES users, the iCAP PRO Series ICP-OES is equally suited to experienced operators conducting high-performance analysis
The Thermo Scientific iCAP PRO ICP-OES Series systems are fitted with either a three- or four-channel high precision peristaltic pump. Both allow for the addition of an online internal standard or the use of hydride generation accessories.
The iCAP PRO Series ICP-OES instruments are supplied with a semi-demountable Enhanced Matrix Tolerance quartz torch. The duo torch is optimized to reduce easily ionized element interferences. Both torch types are designed for simplicity with a quick-release pre-aligned mounting block, which requires no tools for removal. The torch mount incorporates automatic gas connections.
All systems incorporate a series of computer-controlled mass flow controllers (MFC) to ensure precise and stable delivery of plasma gas to the torch and carrier gas to the nebulizer
Radiofrequency generator and plasma
The solid-state, free running 27.12 MHz RF generator, induces plasma formation via the load coil. The plasma system is contained in an EMC enclosure with a viewing window, plasma TV (available on the iCAP PRO XP ICP-OES and iCAP PRO XPS ICP-OES), and fast access, fully interlocked door.
The new high-energy echelle polychromator with a “side-by-side” arrangement of the prism and grating minimizes the optical surfaces, ensuring maximum light throughput to the detector to achieve maximum sensitivity. The intelligent Full Range (iFR) analysis mode can measure wavelengths between 167.021 to 852.145 nm in one simultaneous measurement, significantly reducing analysis times. The enhanced Ultra Violet (eUV) analysis mode can be used to further enhance sensitivity for elements that fall in the wavelength range of 167.021 to 240.063 nm, such as mercury, sulfur, lead, and cadmium
Charge Injection Device Detector
The iCAP PRO Series ICP-OES uses the latest high-speed Charge Injection Device (CID) detector technology, the new CID821. The unique nondestructive read-out (NDRO) capability only available with a CID detector, allows measurement of the signal level on any pixel at any point in the exposure.
The instrument is driven by the Thermo Scientific™ Qtegra™ Intelligent Scientific Data Solution™ (ISDS) Software, developed to combine easy data management, scalability, and compliance. The Qtegra ISDS Software delivers simplicity, productivity, efficiency, and quality in a highly efficient analysis workflow.
