The CleanShot Fast Washout Switch eliminates unnecessary extraction tubing, solenoids and fittings from the laser ablation sample cell to the ICPS torch that reduce aerosol transport efficiency and speed.
Aerosol transport losses are a known contributor to fractionation caused in large part by surface area as a function of tube length and tube ID, circuitous paths that particles travel and transitions caused by fittings. Each of these factors keep analyte from reaching the torch. With CleanShot, the sample passes straight through only one valve before being ionized.
CleanShot is designed for use with Teledyne CETAC and Teledyne Photon Machines laser ablations systems and is located at the torch for optimal performance to minimize losses and yield better data.
