Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES)
The Perkin Elmer “Optima 7000 DV” system acquired in 2012 forms the backbone for major and trace element analyses, and it has shown vital in the adequate calibration of ion-chromatographic column separations performed in our clean laboratories.
The Optima 7000 DV spectrometer uses the PerkinElmer® patented dual-view optical system. Dual viewing allows automatic switching between very sensitive axial viewing to the greater dynamic range of radial viewing in the same sample, with no special adjustments. This eliminates the need to search for alternative wavelengths which is required on single-view instruments.
With its multisampler docket to it, the ICP-OES system is presently used for the major and trace element characterization of carbonates.
