A High-Performance Sample Introduction System for the Agilent ICP-OES

August 14, 2020

The analytical performance of your ICP can often be improved by a careful choice of torch, spray chamber and nebulizer components by taking into account the type of samples that will be analyzed. In this article, we focus on the “hard to measure” ICP-OES elements, As, Se and Pb to determine whether we can improve detection limit performance by selection of appropriate sample introduction components.

A Robust, High Performance, Revolutionary Demountable ICP Torch

February 01, 2020

Glass Expansion designed and patented the D-Torch, a revolutionary, demountable torch. The D-Torch uses high-precision engineering to provide the benefits of a demountable torch, such as lower running costs, chemical inertness, and configurable injector geometry, without compromising usability, performance, or durability. In this report, we discuss the effects of harsh matrices on torches, as well as the features, benefits, and improvements in analysis achieved with the D-Torch.
