Company Description

Savillex Corporation has been manufacturing fluoropolymer laboratory products since 1976 and has unmatched expertise in the molding and machining of PFA. All our design, tooling, molding, manufacturing, and testing is done in-house, giving us complete control of product quality. Our products are widely used in trace metals analysis-from sample collection through to ICP sample introduction.

Chief Spectroscopic Techniques Supported

The sample introduction system is a critical component of both ICP-OES and ICP-MS instrumentation. The design of the sample introduction system affects all aspects of performance, including sensitivity, stability, washout, matrix tolerance, and also oxide level and isotope ratio precision in ICP-MS. Also, the cleanliness of the materials that come into contact with the sample directly impact the quality of the analytical blank. Our ICP sample introduction products are manufactured using the highest purity grades of PFA resin. With over 35 years experience in fluoropolymer molding and unmatched expertise in the design and molding of PFA components, Savillex is bringing new products and capabilities to ICP-MS and ICP-OES, including the world's first blow molded PFA cyclonic spray chamber.

Markets Served

Savillex sample introduction systems are used across a wide range of ICP-MS and ICP-OES applications including semiconductor, geochemistry, pharmaceutical, environmental, biomedical, and petrochemical.
