Environmental Analytics High Measurement Sensitivity for Trace Elements - The New SPECTROGREEN with Twin Interface
SPECTRO Analytical Instruments today announced the introduction of the latest model of the SPECTROGREEN ICP-OES: The SPECTROGREEN TI with proven Twin Interface technology automatically combines axial and radial plasma observation. In this way, it optimizes measurement sensitivity, linearity as well as dynamic range and avoids matrix effects such as the effect of easily ionizable elements (EIE).
SPECTROGREEN TI offers numerous advantages for a wide range of applications in routine analysis: Innovative technologies, high flexibility and functionality, focus on the essentials, easy operation, durability and reliability for fast analyses with high productivity.
Several Model Variants Available
Another model variant is the SPECTROGREEN DSOI. Thanks to the radial dual side-on interface technology, it offers twice the detection sensitivity of instruments with conventional radial plasma viewing and similarly good sensitivity compared to newer dual-view systems with vertical plasma torches - entirely without their complexity and typical problems. For applications that do not require the higher DSOI sensitivity, the SPECTROGREEN SOP enables solid stability and precision thanks to dedicated radial single side-on plasma viewing.
All three SPECTROGREEN models provide reliable and accurate analysis - from trace element concentrations and higher concentrations in difficult matrixes such as certain wastewaters, soils and sludges, to organic samples and samples with high salinity and metal matrices. The SPECTROGREEN is ideal for routine analysis in the environmental, agricultural, consumer protection, pharmaceutical, chemical/petrochemical and food sectors. All model versions require neither optics purge gas nor external cooling thanks to the innovative UV-PLUS gas purification technology. Expensive, failure-prone cooling units can thus be dispensed with.
In addition, SPECTRO's ORCA polychromator optics technology, used in all three SPECTROGREEN models, maximizes light throughput, stability and detection sensitivity. As a result, it offers first-class performance for elements with emission lines in the UV range. Compared to conventional ICP-OES with radial plasma observation, the DSOI technique achieves an average of two times better detection sensitivity over the entire spectral range. A single analysis covers the entire wavelength range - eliminating the need to select the viewing mode as well as the need to analyze the sample in different modes, which is a key advantage for laboratories with high sample throughput.
The GigE readout system significantly speeds up signal processing, contributing to a significant increase in overall processing speed. This enables shorter sample-to-sample times and thus more samples per hour. Thermal stabilization of the optical system well above 0°C avoids problems with deep freezing.
State-of-the-art, low-noise CMOS line detectors avoid any blooming effect and enable fast signal processing and a wide dynamic range. In addition, the latest 1,700 watt LDMOS generator helps analyze difficult sample matrices. In lower dilutions, this enables the lowest detection limits. Completely air-cooled and trouble-free, the generator additionally scores with fast warm-up times, which further increases productivity.
Simple User Interface
Modular architecture and plug-ins support customization of the interface to meet the user's needs. Processing speeds are extremely high, even with large amounts of data. Version and user management, combined with excellent audit trail capabilities, makes the analysis process fully transparent and traceable.
With the AMECARE Performance Service package, SPECTRO offers a program that ensures the highest possible availability and maximum productivity. AMECARE M2M (machine-to-machine) support adds proactive alerts to the instrument's self-diagnostic functions and enables a direct PC connection to a SPECTRO service expert when needed.
