Configured for maximum customer focus: At this year’s EWCPS 2019 in Pau, France, Analytik Jena is presenting the continued development of its PlasmaQuant MS series. In the future, customers will be able to configure every system in the ICP-MS series (ICP-MS: mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma) to suit their individual requirements. In addition to the PlasmaQuant MS and MS Elite models already available, two additional models are introduced. The PlasmaQuant MS Q is optimized for high-throughput applications, such as quality control for consumer goods, food inspection, or environmental monitoring. The second new model, the PlasmaQuant MS Elite S, was developed for routine analysis of ultratraces and offers an extremely high level of sensitivity. It is especially suitable for industries where analysis depends on the lowest detection limits and the highest recovery rates—such as applications in the semiconductor industry, quality control for high-purity chemicals, or in geochemistry and geochronology.

“With the new ICP models, the MS Q and MS Elite S, which have been specifically optimized for customer requirements in our seven key industries, we are consistently expanding the range of applications of the ICP-MS technology. Whether for high-throughput, routine, or research applications, the technological advantages of the PlasmaQuant MS series in combination with the new application-optimized upgrade options make it possible to achieve optimal, tailor-made solutions for our customers,” explains Dr. Marc Diener, director of Product Management and Application at Analytik Jena, the expanded range of applications of the PlasmaQuant MS product series.

With the two new ICP-MS models, the company aims to serve users who require a particularly high degree of performance flexibility in their ICP-MS applications. Customers receive virtually unlimited freedom of application. Depending on the matrix load of the samples and the individual performance requirements for sensitivity and throughput, analysis of more than 80 samples per hour is possible. The continued development of the ICP-MS portfolio serves to optimize the ICP-MS technology of Analytik Jena for special and routine applications in the Company’s seven key industries: pharmaceutical, chemical, oil and gas, food, environment, energy, and geology and mining. 

Analytik Jena additionally offers a wide range of upgrade options to tailor all systems in the PlasmaQuant MS series for the requirements of their respective fields of application. EWCPS visitors can experience the new model variants in person at the Analytik Jena booth.
