ICP-MS Extracts Isotopic Data
A new inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) instrument has been designed by Thermo Fisher Scientific to enable scientists working in earth sciences, nuclear safeguards and biomedical research to conduct reliable, high-precision isotope ratio analysis across a wide range of applications.
The Thermo Scientific Neoma Multicollector ICP-MS (MC-ICP-MS) system combines features from the field-proven technology of existing Thermo Scientific variable multicollector instrumentation. A new level of automation with the integration of peripherals makes access to reliable, high-precision isotope ratio data easier and more efficient, leading to enhanced research productivity and novel applications. The new instrument offers the flexibility to quickly change between a broad range of isotopic systems. “High quality isotopic data enables scientists to better understand the processes that shape our environment and that control the distribution of mineral resources,” said Fabrizio Moltoni, vice president and general manager, applied analytical technology, chromatography and mass spectrometry, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
