Customer comments

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

Environmental Lab - USA

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 Fluidigm ® cone using both QC beads and biological cell samples. The QC bead CVs were actually slightly higher than with our 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.

Cytometry Laboratory – USA

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).

Cytometry Laboratory – Canada

Skimmer reducer cone test went well.

Cytometry Laboratory – Canada

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