Industry’s Smallest ICP-OES Helps Researchers Test Complex Food, Industrial and Environmental Samples
Jul 12 2016 Comments 0
PerkinElmer, Inc (USA) have announced the launch of the Avio 200 Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES), the industry’s most compact system designed for efficient multi-elemental inorganic analysis. This innovative technology helps laboratory professionals running inorganic analyses and facing an expanding range of sample types to test difficult, high-matrix samples without the need for dilution.
The Avio 200 system has the matrix tolerance to handle a wide variety of samples and to test across a broad set of applications such as: nutrients analysis for nutritional labeling; compliance with the RoHS Directive, an industry restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical/electronic equipment; analysis of soil micronutrients; determination of trace elements in water; and evaluation of metal levels in toys.
“With industry regulations becoming more complex and driving testing for more elements, lab professionals find themselves challenged with managing the associated higher sample volume and time-consuming analyses,” said Jon DiVincenzo, President, Environmental Health, PerkinElmer. “The Avio 200 system is our latest innovation in ICP instrumentation engineered to help our customers run multi-elemental analyses reliably and efficiently across food safety, industrial and environmental applications for better health outcomes.”
The Avio 200 system is designed to help laboratory professionals enhance their productivity through its ability to deliver increased uptime and minimal maintenance.
The system features a vertical plasma design for greater sample flexibility, low argon consumption (via patented Flat Plate plasma technology), and fast start up from power on for enhanced productivity. It also offers high sensitivity and resolution, along with a wide linear range by means of its unique dual optical viewing technology.
Laboratory professionals running inorganic analyses that need to measure more than one element at a time can now leverage the Avio 200 system for multi-element analyses with the same ease of use as atomic absorption (AA), but without the flammable gases. The system is also as cost-efficient and cost-effective as AA technology without the need to purchase lamps when running new elements. The system also leverages the cross-platform Syngistix software for atomic spectroscopy for a seamless transition from AA to ICP software.
