High-Throughput Sample Introduction Systems for Environmental Analysis

Mar 12 2008 Read 1157 Times

PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences (USA) recently announced an agreement with Elemental Scientific Inc. (ESI) to offer integrated sample introduction systems designed to improve throughput when making measurements under EPA Methods 200.7 and 200.8 analysis, which focus on the determination of metal concentration in drinking water, in addition to other environmental applications.
ESI’s Sample Changer (SC)-FAST system fully integrates with PerkinElmer’s inorganic spectrometers and is offered with PerkinElmer’s ELAN® Inductively-Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS)and Optima™ Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) instrumentation.
“With PerkinElmer instruments and the ESI FAST system, laboratories can improve the sample throughput of their ICP-MS and ICP dramatically, for
some samples up to 50 percent and enhance return on investment,” said Ian Shuttler, Vice President Inorganic Analysis Business, PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences.
The system reduces non-productive time segments of the analysis, including uptake, stabilization and rinse times.
“PerkinElmer’s ELAN and Optima instrumentation are a perfect fit with ESI’s SC-FAST system,” said Dan Wiederin, President of ESI. “The software PerkinElmer uses to control sample introduction is a flexible and userfriendly interface to ESI sample introduction systems. The combination of the SC-FAST with ELAN and Optima offers laboratories dramatic benefits in throughput and data quality.”
