Glass Expansion has built up an enviable reputation for excellent customer support over the last 30 years. The company founders and staff believe that there is no room for compromise in either product quality or customer service. Thousands of analytical laboratories in all parts of the world rely on Glass Expansion products in the day-to-day operation of their ICP-OES and ICP-MS equipment. Our products are also used by all of the major ICP-OES and ICP-MS manufacturers. We are acutely aware of the frustration and cost if a sample analysis needs to be repeated due to an unreliable sample introduction system. We have four ICP spectrometers (both OES and MS models) in our own ICP laboratory to assist us with quality control and product development. Our team has a wealth of ICP experience and is ready to provide advice on the best procedure and sample introduction system for your application. Our customer support team includes:
