Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) Instruments

PerkinElmer has been at the forefront of ICP-MS technology – from the very first commercial ICP-MS back in 1983 to the first instrument bringing together the detection limits of a true reaction cell and the simplicity of a collision cell in 2010, and most recently, the industry’s first four-quadrupole system – nearly four decades of patents, innovations, and accolades.


Along with our rich history comes a deep understanding of the unique and diverse needs of the customers and markets we serve. And for testing laboratories conducting trace-elemental analyses that depend on accurate results to meet today’s industry needs and regulatory requirements, our NexION® ICP mass spectrometers build on this legacy of innovation, meeting and exceeding expectations. Discover the NexION family of ICP-MS systems:

  • NexION 1000 ICP-MS – the ideal high-throughput system for routine, multi-elemental, trace-level analyses that meet regulatory standards.
  • NexION 2000 ICP-MS – the most versatile ICP-MS on the market, featuring an array of proprietary and proven technologies that come together seamlessly to handle any sample matrix, any interference, and any particle size.
  • NexION 5000 ICP-MS – multi-quadrupole system taking ICP-MS performance beyond high-resolution ICP-MS and traditional triple-quad technology to deliver exceptionally low background equivalent concentrations (<1 ppt, even in hot plasma) and outstanding detection limits.
