Add Clarity, Simplicity, and Confidence to Your Most Delicate Analytical Routines

The unique performance of PlasmaQuant 9100 ICP-OES instruments is a result of all its features combined like the high spectral resolution, the powerful plasma system, the smart torch design and the flexible dual view feature. Especially the interplay of spectral resolution, matrix tolerance and sensitivity opens a tremendous analytical potential for trace element analysis in almost any sample type with particular advantages for high matrix samples. The spectral resolution allows for using the most sensitive emission lines, the matrix tolerance allows for running highly concentrated sample aliquots, even undiluted volatile organics or highly concentrated salt solutions, and the sensitivity provides a high light throughput and ideal signal to background rations.

  • Cost-efficient shift-work operation
  • Flexible plasma observation
  • Interference-free emission lines
  • System readiness within 15 minutes

Extended Analytical Capabilities and Results You Can Rely On

The PlasmaQuant 9100 ICP-OES series of Analytik Jena offers a multitude of innovative features to provide a powerful analytical tool with the best possible ICP-OES performance and a broad applicability from routine analyses to highly complex analytical tasks. The PlasmaQuant 9100 ICP-OES series consists of two models, the PlasmaQuant 9100 routine allrounder and the PlasmaQuant 9100 Elite high-performance ICP-OESIt comprises four main features alongside a multitude of tuning possibilities and features to provide the full suite of analytical possibilities.

The main features are:

  • V Shuttle torch, which offers a long lifetime of torch components, minimizes maintenance and reduces wash-out and sample deposition related issues
  • High frequency generator, which provides a plasma of extraordinary robustness to run any sample type with minimum efforts and maximum emission yields
  • Dual View Plus plasma observation modes to increase the instruments working range to a maximum, minimize sample preparation efforts and allow for efficient measurements
  • High-resolution optical system to provide interference-free analysis in any kind of sample matrix with highly reliable data quality.

PlasmaQuant 9100

With a clear emphasis on broad applicability, simplicity and cost-effectiveness in general applications, the PlasmaQuant 9100 is not just another ICP-OES. With high-performance features, it allows for more matrix tolerance, a wide working range and high measurement sensitivity. It provides high-quality results in contract analysis, reliability in quality control and the highest standards in regulated industries. Whether aiming for on-off measurements, method flexibility in shift-operation or continuous aspiration of challenging samples, the PlasmaQuant 9100 is your instrument of choice.

PlasmaQuant 9100 Elite

High spectral resolution: the extra that makes the difference in ICP-OES. The PlasmaQuant 9100 Elite uncovers spectral details like no other ICP-OES. Removing common spectral interferences minimizes compromises in line selection and allows the use of highly sensitive emission lines for every application. In combination with its matrix tolerance and superior sensitivity, this enables previously unconceived analytical potential with superior precision, accuracy and detection limits in any sample type. The PlasmaQuant 9100 Elite is the number one choice for spectral resolution, sensitivity and the ideal solution for your most delicate analytical routines.

The configuration of the PlasmaQuant 9100 instruments can be tailored to the specific needs of each application. A range of accessories and upgrade options provide a high level of application flexibility, easy sample handling, and high throughput. Application-specific sample introduction kits for the analysis of low-matrix sample types, saline or metal samples with high matrix content, hydrofluoric acid containing samples or organic samples are available. A variety of compatible autosamplers allows the automation of the sample analysis and minimizes the hands-on-time for operators. There is a range of autosamplers that can be configured, from standard autosamplers for aqueous solutions via samplers for organic samples of different viscosity to automatic dilution stations to maximize the automation of the laboratory workflow. Additionally, autosamplers can be complemented by rapid sample introduction systems to increase sample throughput and the profitability of the ICP-OES system. The PlasmaQuant 9100 is always ready. Fast system warm-up and a self-aligning spectrometer by using an internal Neon correction guarantee system availability within a few minutes and therefore enables a highly economic instrument utilization.

The ability to run complex and concentrated samples, resolve severe spectral interferences, detect trace and ultra-trace concentrations and work across a wide concentration range make the PlasmaQuant 9100 the ideal tool for industrial QC and R&D labs as well as contract and state authority labs with challenging sample types and stringent quality requirements. Clients from various industries, e.g. oil & gas, metals & mining and chemicals trust in its performance and stability. The PlasmaQuant 9100 guarantees the competitive advantage of your lab in terms of extended analytical capabilities, analysis quality and cost-effectiveness
