ICP-MS Cones

Best Equipped and Qualified Cone Machining Plant in the World

Glass Expansion has over 35 years of experience in manufacturing ICP-MS sample introduction components and has earned a world-wide reputation for quality and reliability. We manufacture ICP-MS cones to the same exacting standards as all of our products and they are guaranteed to perform to your satisfaction. Our manufacturing plant includes CNC machines, laser and electron beam welders allowing us to provide you with the tightest manufacturing specifications.

We supply cones for all of the popular ICP-MS instruments, including models from Agilent ®, Nu Instruments™, PerkinElmer ®, Shimadzu ® and Thermo Fisher Scientific ®. We recently added the TOF-ICP-MS Mass Cytometers to our ICP-MS cone catalog.

Take Advantage of our Glass Expansion Warranty.

If for any reason, you are not 100% satisfied, you can return the cones for a full credit or refund.

We also provide a refurbishment program for platinum cones.

Customer comments

(In reference to the Thermo Sampler and Skimmer Cones) Not only the GE cones work great, but you also helped us become more comfortable working with the cone exchange and tool tuning. Your tips on tool maintenance are also great help to us. ..... We will for sure be happy buying more GE parts .......Many thanks.

(In response to NexION 5000 cones) We have been able to test the cones and so far, have been able to determine a performance that corresponds to the original cones, especially in terms of oxide rate, sensitivity, etc.

(In response to GE P/N TG1045-Ni) Consensus is they really like this cone. There's a general issue with the inserts performing poorly on the standard cones if they are not perfectly nested. We then, when encountering issues with doubly charged/oxides/rsd/sensitivity etc, have to troubleshoot the problem and occasionally it's the insert. This eliminates that as a potential point of failure. We've seen no negative issues. It's very durable. We've been running it now for over 2 months. We have the plasma lit for 12-18hrs per day nearly 7 days a week. This would definitely be a piece of hardware we'd look to use as a substitute for our skimmer+insert cones.

We had higher sensitivity due to using the new Pt cones we just ordered from GE

We use tons of GE stuff in our lab. I am very satisfied with everything, especially the ICP-MS cones we recently purchased. Keep up the great work!

Nutritional science laboratory - USA

Thank you so much for repairing our 2 skimmer cones. I was so happy when I received those two repaired skimmers, shiny like brand new. Thank you!! Everyone in the lab actually impressed by the work and this service. We all think this service deserve a star, and a thanks card.

Clinical laboratory - Australia

We've tested the GE sampler cone on all three of our Helios™ instruments and it worked great, showing highly comparable performance to our current Standard BioTools™ (Fluidigm) cone using both QC beads and biological cell samples. The QC bead CVs were actually slightly higher than with our Standard BioTools™ (Fluidigm) cones, but this could admittedly just be because it was a brand new cone and our current cones have likely been used for a while.

I tried the new cone on our worse Helios™ (Helios™ A) which usually has a Tb that doesn't get much above 1.0 million and with this cone I got a Tb of 1.48 million!

Cytometry Laboratory - USA

(In reference to P/N FL9005) it worked really well.

Cytometry Laboratory - USA

We have been running your sampler cone in our brand new Helios™ instrument. The initial comparison I sent previously showed they were nearly identical in terms of performance for an n=1, (both cones were new).

Skimmer reducer cone test went well.

Tested out your GE sampler cone, looks good! Primarily we look at the Tb mean duals in the tuning solution and polystyrene eq beads.
