Good results


Average Rating 4.3

Application Area:

Analyze metals

The product makes analyzes cheaper due to the plasma source, but there are many interferences in this method.

Review Date: 4 Feb 2024 | Agilent Technologies

Satisfied with product


Average Rating 4.3

Application Area:

To analyse metal concentrations in aqueous solutions

Since we also bought the autosampler from DKSH, the use of our MP AES is very easy and simple. Regular cleaning of parts are necessary, but pretty user friendly. Also standards for carlibrations are bought from DKSH and they work well as well.

Review Date: 17 Nov 2021 | Agilent Technologies

Accurate results. Easy for beginners. Some upkeep needed.


Average Rating 4.0

Application Area:

Analytical chemistry

Quick and easy to operate system. Simple enough to use for an analytical chem course to teach students Beer's law and for comparison to other quantification methods. Some occasional maintenance is required to keep in running smoothly.

Review Date: 17 May 2021 | Agilent Technologies

Great results. Its good to have one in the lab.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Metal analysis in soil

This equipment is easy to use and very straightforward. Just place in the samples and press run and the readings will pop up in a blink of an eye.

It's a very good product!


Average Rating 3.3

Application Area:

Metal analysis

We use it for analyzing the batches of produced catalysts and the research foci: it's worthing time!

Review Date: 2 Feb 2021 | Agilent Technologies

Accurate instrument.


Average Rating 4.7

Application Area:

Application/R&D work for metal ions

MP-AES works very smoothly and gives accurate results. the MP-AES is also very user friendly.

Review Date: 9 Mar 2020 | Agilent Technologies

Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Atomic emission spectrometer

Excellent price for capabilities. Wide range of elements but scans just one element at a time. Easy to use but could be simplified a bit. Students can run by themselves. Well designed and inexpensive to run. Use nitrogen gas.

Review Date: 6 Mar 2020 | Agilent Technologies

Good equipment but needs seasonal maintenance.


Average Rating 4.7

Application Area:

Heavy metal, essential mineral analysis in food and feed

4200 MP-AES machine produces defensible results in a short period of time and it is so easy to manipulate it. You can adapt to using the machine with minor training. The only problem we are facing is a lack of periodic maintenance from agents in local areas. Otherwise the machine is the latest technology especially in food and feed safety control.

It's an instrument anybody can use.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Analytical chemistry

Easy to use and most effective.

Review Date: 11 Jul 2019 | Agilent Technologies

Ideal if you need something between AAS and ICP.


Average Rating 4.3

Application Area:

Miscellaneous testing for metals

The Agilent MP-AES is pitched between AAS and ICP-OES in terms of sensitivity and price. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was more sensitive than I expected and it was actually comparable with other manufacturers' ICPs I'd used in the past. In terms of operation and maintenance it is very similar to ICP and I found this very easy to adapt to. The results are of a high quality in terms of precision, reproducibility etc. I've not had much need for after sales care so far so can't really comment on this. The main selling point for me was the ease of installation and low running costs. Ideally the MP-AES should be run with a nitrogen generator and air compressor, I think Agilent underplay this and leave it to the customer to sort out. Unfortunately Agilent don't provide a complete system with all this included so this needs to be added to your budget, this is my only real negative comment about the system. I'm still operating on nitrogen cylinders so operating costs will remain relatively high until I get a nitrogen generator.

The Agilent 4210 MP-AES is a high sensitivity atomic emission spectrometer that is the perfect alternative to the traditional flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) technique.

The MP-AES Instrument utilizes a microwave plasma and as it runs on air instead of combustible gases, it can be installed in either a centralized laboratory or a remote location. With detection limits down to ppb levels and no sample pretreatment necessary, the 4210 MP-AES delivers MP-AES analysis at a fraction of the cost of traditional techniques.


  • Runs unattended, without flammable or expensive gas supply, dramatically reducing your operating cost
  • Application-specific software applets plus plug-and-play hardware ensures ease-of-use, allowing any user to set up quickly without method development or alignment, and with minimal training
  • In addition to eliminating flammable and oxidizing gases, the MP-AES improves lab safety by eliminating the need to plumb multiple gases into the laboratory, or manually transport and handle gas cylinders
  • High-performance, magnetically excited microwave plasma source provides superior detection limits and larger linear dynamic range compared to flame AA.
  • Robustness and reliability that are ideal for industries such as food and agriculture, chemicals, petrochemicals, manufacturing, mining, and use at remote locations
  • Extend the performance with a range of accessories such as a humidifier, Advanced Valve System 4, and IsoMist temperature-controlled spray chamber, ensuring stable analysis of even your toughest samples
  • The MP Expert Automation Software pack allows automated remote control of the instrument, with status updates and results relayed to you in real time
  • Intuitive MP Expert software provides method development and software applets that include pre-set method templates, control of integrated accessories, and enhanced diagnostics to maximize your instrument up-time and dramatically simplify your workflow
