STEVENSVILLE, MI — Alpha Resources LLC, the leading aftermarket supplier of consumables and reference materials, has expanded their Thermo Fisher Scientific® compatible products to include supplies for inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) analysis. In-stock supplies include both sample cone and skimmer cone options compatible with numerous models of Thermo Fisher ICP-MS analysis equipment.
This product expansion follows in the wake of Alpha’s recent addition of optical emission spectroscopy (OES) supplies compatible for Thermo Fisher Scientific analysis equipment. Thermo Fisher is a leading OEM for laboratory equipment in many industrial sectors, including the inorganic markets which Alpha Resources has historically served.
“Alpha’s customers have expressed an interest in alternatives to OEMs’ aftermarket ICP-MS supplies. The cones and skimmers used for ICP-MS analysis are a challenge as the precision machining required is exacting—or the background and sensitivity counts could negatively impact the analysis. Ensuring that Alpha could offer cones and skimmers which will perform comparably to an OEM product while still providing a cost savings has been a long-term project,” notes Ken Mantei, director of operations, at Alpha Resources. “Customers trust the Alpha Resources’ name to provide high quality aftermarket analysis supplies, and our new ICP-MS cones and skimmers deliver on that promise.”
