- Simultaneous dual mode (analog/ digital) detector
—Provides over nine orders of dynamic range and measures both high- and low-level analytes simultaneously. Also delivers the fastest data acquisition rates of any ICP-MS instrument on the market, making the NexION 300 an ideal tool for the emerging nanomaterials field.
- Large, open sample introduction area
—Accommodates a wide variety of sample introduction systems and is easily accessible to both left- and right-handed users.
- Low liquid uptake nebulizer
—Saves money by reducing sample consumption and minimizing lab waste. Every NexION 300 ships with a concentric nebulizer and cyclonic spray chamber and can be user-defined for specific applications.
- Free running RF plasma generator
—Unlike other systems, the NexION 300’s RF generator features no moving parts for reliable, robust performance, and instantly changes to accommodate any plasma—ideal for petrochemical applications and speciation solvents.
- Benchtop design with no rear connections
—Saves valuable laboratory space and allows operation and installation up against a wall.
- Fastest-scanning quadrupole in the industry (>5000 amu/sec)
—Offers the fastest peak hopping and highest analytical mass range available (all the way up to 285 amu).
- Triple Cone Interface
—Produces the most tightly focused ion beam in the industry, reducing build-up on internal components (particularly the Quadrupole Ion Deflector) so maintenance and cleaning are minimized.
- Quadrupole Ion Deflector
—Allows only ions of a specified mass to pass into the Universal Cell, enhancing sensitivity while keeping the cell clean—making it the only ICP-MS on the market with a cell that never needs cleaning or replacing.
- Custom-designed, four-stage vacuum system
— Features the highest capacity turbo and roughing pumps and allows the use of any collision or reaction gas in the Universal Cell. Pump down can be achieved in a fraction of the time of other systems, allowing users to get back to running samples 2-3 times faster than with other instruments.
- Fully automated X, Y, Z torch positioning
— Computer-controlled for maximum ion transmission. Offers automatic one-touch optimization which, when combined with PerkinElmer’s patented PlasmaLok® technology (for secondary discharges), completely eliminates the need for costly consumable parts (like shields) required on other instruments.
