ICP-OES

Susak with the ICP-OESThe SPECTRO CIROS CCD is the first solid-state detector based ICP-OES with continuous 1st Order wavelength coverage from 125 nm to 770 nm in a single 2.5 second measurement. In addition to being capable of analyzing the halogens, the wavelength range allows the measurement of less intense lines for many additional elements. In addition, the SPECTRO CIROS CCD is the first ICP available with a completely programmable positioning system. This Multi-Plasma Viewing goes far beyond the capabilities of simple axial/radial or dual view.

Funding for the instrument was kindly provided by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, and Freewest Resources Canada Inc.
