The high-definition quadrupole mass analyzer of ICP-MS PlasmaQuant® MS offers the ability to quickly and accurately measure more than 75 elements at concentrations ranging from ultra-trace to major levels in a single measurement. The HD Quadrupole separates the positively-charged analyte ions produced in the plasma according to their mass-to-charge ratio.
With true 3 MHz performance, the HD Quadrupole of the PlasmaQuant® MS provides superior mass separation. This allows for an abundance sensitivity of <3x10-8cps from 238U on mass 237, a crucial parameter for isotope ratio measurements. The combination of high sensitivity and ultra-fast dwell times down to 50 µs means the PlasmaQuant® MS is also the perfect instrument for laser ablation and single particle analysis.
