|Thermo VG PQ ExCell ICP-MS
|A quadrupole-based inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) designed for the determination of trace elements in a range of sample types. The instrument comprises a sample introduction system including a peristaltic pump, a peltier cooled pnuematic nebulisation system, a one-piece quartz torch, mass flow controllers and a solid-state RF generator. There is an interface of two cones which sample the ions created in the plasma and provide an ion skimming function. Cylindrical electrodes are then used to extract and focus ions from the interface into the mass spectrometer. The instrument includes a vacuum pumping system, argon backfill system and an autorange standard detector system. There is a high efficiency ion guide and chicane deflector coupled to an off-axis quadrupole mass analyser known as the Infinity Lens System which reduces background noise. The ICP-MS is fully automated and is operated using PlasmaLab software. Optional extras include collision cell technology, choice of detectors, 4th gas supply with mass flow controller, organic matrix sample option, S-Option interface technology and a range of sampling accessories. This model was released in 1999 and was replaced by the XSERIES in 2001.
