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 application is ready to go sooner.
The IsoMist XR is a compact, convenient and maintenance-free temperature-controlled sample introduction system for all ICP-OES and ICP-MS.
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 1°C increments from -25°C to 80°C guaranteeing optimum conditions for any application. The improved cooling efficiency of the new multi-stage Peltier design means the IsoMist XR is ready, sooner and the cool-down time is reduced.
Using the IsoMist XR spray chamber at sub-ambient temperature on an ICP-MS, the sample is cooled so less water vapor is transferred to the plasma resulting in lower oxide formation and reduced polyatomic interferences - improving accuracy and detection limits.
When analyzing volatile organic solvents such as naphtha and gasoline a lower sample introduction system temperature reduces nebulization efficiency avoiding quenching of the plasma from solvent over-loading. With a minimum temperature of -25°C analyzing volatile organic solvents is even easier.
Fluctuations in the lab temperature affects sample viscosity and nebulization efficiency. Maintaining the sample introduction 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 calibration verification check standard drifts outside the acceptable limits.
The sensitivity for many analyses is enhanced by running the spray chamber at an elevated temperature, which is particularly important for samples with limited volume.
The IsoMist XR incorporates a proven Twister cyclonic spray chamber available in either glass, quartz, or PFA - all with Helix™ O-ring free, zero dead-volume nebulizer interface. Compared to a Scott-type spray chamber, cyclonic spray chambers are more sensitive and have better washout between samples. The O-ring-free, Helix nebulizer interface eliminates sample contamination and ensures simple nebulizer removal and replacement for routine cleaning. With a positive stop built-in, Helixtm ensures the correct and reproducible nebulizer insertion depth for consistent analytical performance.
The IsoMist XR is an elegant, compact, stand-alone system manufactured from inert materials resistant to attack from acids and solvents commonly used in ICP analysis. By using a Peltier thermo-electric device to maintain the spray chamber temperature, the messy, noisy, and high-maintenance refrigerated, recirculating baths used with jacketed spray chambers is eliminated. The compact design also means the IsoMist XR Programmable Temperature Controlled Spray Chambers are compatible with any ICP-OES and ICP-MS.
The IsoMist XR can be configured with a low volume (20mL) Twinnabar spray chamber for applications with limited sample volume. Note that a special IsoMist XR version is required - the Twinnabar cannot be used in the standard IsoMist XR. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for full details.
We have established an IsoMist XR Kit for common ICP-OES and ICP-MS models. Each kit contains the IsoMist module, encapsulated Twister spray chamber, torch interface, and mounting bracket (if required). Please select the kit to match your ICP from the following:

In terms of doing multi element analysis on spirit samples the IsoMist has proved itself to be a very useful tool.
Beverage manufacturer - UK
(In reference to the IsoMist) We are getting around 40% increased sensitivity over what we had before. Also, the QC recoveries for the problem elements B, Al and Zn seem to be much improved.
Health laboratory - Australia
We have all instruments using the Niagara Plus and the IsoMist and have increased efficiencies by up to 40% and over-all quality has also shown improvements, so we are very happy with them.
Minerals laboratory - Australia
So far we are very happy with the IsoMist spray chamber. The detection limits are better and the intensities are more stable from run to run.
Precious metals laboratory - Australia
The IsoMist has significantly boosted our productivity. It is so stable that I need only run a CCV and CCB at the beginning of the day and then start running samples. No need to restandardize daily.
Environmental laboratory - USA.
I've been operating the IsoMist on the 6500 at 27 degrees centigrade ... the improvement in stability has been dramatic ... I am thrilled at the linearity with little shift throughout a complex standardization and sample run.
Precious metals laboratory - USA
The equipment works extraordinarily well. Keeping temperature at 5°C the noise drops to half as much as without the IsoMist. There is no problem at all with temperature stability and the signal is twice as much as the one obtained without the IsoMist.
University laboratory - Spain
I would enthusiastically recommend the IsoMist to anyone trying to minimize oxide formation in ICP-MS.
Government laboratory - USA
The IsoMist was a treat because it took the place of the jacketed spray chamber, the heated bath, delivery tubes, and pump. It also eliminated my worries about leaks in my sample chamber. It is a small, neat package.
Oil company - USA
We are very happy with the performance of the IsoMist.
