The IsoMist XR programmable temperature controlled cyclonic spray
chamber now features an improved thermodynamic design providing an
extended temperature range and faster cool-down, so your ICP is ready
to go sooner.
IsoMist XR is a compact, convenient and maintenance-free temperature
controlled sample introduction system for all ICP’s.
Improved Analytical Stability with Precise Temperature Control
On the IsoMist XR, the spray chamber temperature is accurately controlled
through an improved thermodynamic design using a multi-stage peltier
device. The spray chamber temperature is settable in 1oC increments
from -25oC to 80oC guaranteeing optimum conditions can be used for any
Reduce Oxide Interferences in ICP-MS
Using the IsoMist XR spray chamber at sub-ambient temperatures on
an ICP-MS, the sample is cooled, less water vapor is transferred to the
plasma resulting in lower oxide formation and reduced polyatomic (ArO,
ArOH) interferences. Less oxides in the plasma mean fewer interferences,
improving accuracy and detection limits.
Perfect for Naphtha and Gasoline Analysis
For volatile solvents, a lower sample introduction temperature reduces
nebulization efficiency avoiding quenching of the plasma from solvent overloading.
With a minimum operating temperature of -25oC, analyzing volatile
organic solvents such as naphtha and gasoline by ICP is even easier.
Improve Analytical Stability with Constant
Spray Chamber Temperature
Fluctuations in the lab temperature affects sample viscosity and
nebulization efficiency. Maintaining the sample introduction system at
a constant and stable temperature improves analytical reproducibility,
enhances throughput and lowers operating costs by reducing the need to
re-run samples when a check standard drifts outside the acceptable upper
or lower limits.
Elevated Sample Introduction Temperatures
The sensitivity for many analyses can be enhanced by operating the
spray chamber at elevated temperatures - especially important for limited
sample volumes. Heating the spray chamber also helps with the analysis
of viscous samples such as lubricants and edible oils.
A Spray Chamber Optimized for Analytical Performance
The IsoMist XR incorporates a proven cyclonic spray chamber design in
glass, quartz and HF resistant PFA with Helix CT interface. Compared to
a Scott type spray chamber, cyclonic spray chambers are more sensitive
and have better washout. The IsoMist XR includes the Helix CT nebulizer
interface, which eliminates sample contamination and ensures easy
nebulizer removal for routine nebulizer cleaning. The Helix CT nebulizer
interface also has zero dead volume, reducing carry-over and improving
washout between samples. With a positive stop built-in, Helix CT ensures
correct and reproducible nebulizer insertion depth for constant nebulizer
Easy to Use Software
For maximum convenience, the IsoMist XR can be controlled from a PC
via USB or Bluetooth wireless interface. The spray chamber temperature
can be monitored during an analytical run with time vs temperature plot on
your PC screen.
Elegant, Ergonomic and Compact
The IsoMist XR is an elegant, compact, stand-alone system manufactured
from materials resistant to attack from acids and solvents commonly used in
ICP analysis. By using a peltier to maintain the spray chamber temperature,
the messy, noisy and high-maintenance refrigerated circulating baths used
with jacketed spray chambers has been eliminated. The compact design
means all IsoMist XR Programmable Temperature Controlled Spray
Chambers are compatible with virtually any ICP-OES or ICP-MS.
