LC Interface for Speciation Measurements

The chemical effect of some elements varies dramatically depending on the species present. Therefore the concentration of each species needs to be determined rather than the total concentration of each element. In order to measure the concentration of different species, they must first be separated using chromatography - most commonly LC - and then detected using ICP-MS or ICP-OES.

Glass Expansion has released an LC fittings kit to allow quick and easy connection of your LC to your ICP. The LC Fittings Kit is compatible with any U-Series nebulizer. SeaSpray, MicroMist and Conikal versions of the U-Series nebulizer are available to suit all common models of ICP-MS and ICP-OES. And, the LC fittings kit can be configured to interface to all common LC outputs. The standard kit is configured for 1.6mm (1/16 inch) OD tubing. If you need a kit configured for different LC tubing, please contact
