SPECTRO Analytical Instruments has introduced the new SPECTROGREEN inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) analyser, which includes a new Dual Side-On Interface (DSOI) technology. DSOI technology uses a vertical plasma torch, observed via a new direct radial-view technology. Two optical interfaces capture emitted light from both sides of the plasma, using only a single extra reflection, for added sensitivity and elimination of issues plaguing newer vertical-torch dual-view models. As a result, DSOI provides twice the sensitivity of conventional radial systems and yet avoids the complexity, drawbacks and cost of vertical dual view models.
The new instrument saves on consumables with a low-purge optic design (a UV-PLUS option offers a no-purge feature) and requires no added cooling. ORCA optical technology maximises light throughput, stability and sensitivity, and a new GigE readout system significantly boosts spectra processing and transport speeds for faster analysis speeds and shorter sample-to-sample times.
