Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer

Accelerating Reliable Performance

  • The first system in the industry to include functions for assisting with analytical method development and diagnostics.
  • Newly developed collision cell and On-Line IEC work together to eliminate spectral interference, and achieve high-sensitive and low-interference analyses.
  • Unique system developed by Shimadzu results in the industry’s lowest running costs.

Designed for High Stability and Low Running Costs

More Compact Vacuum System
The smaller three-stage split-flow turbomolecular pump is especially easy to maintain, maximizing up-time of the

Secondary Electron Multiplier Tube Detector
The 9-digit dynamic range detector allows for measuring major components and trace components simultaneously with high sensitivity.

Lens System Minimizes Contamination
Located behind the newly developed collision cell, the focusing lens improves ion transmission efficiency and elimination of light emission from the plasma.

Newly Developed Collision Cell
The newly developed collision cell achieves superior sensitivity by providing highly efficient molecular ion removal and high elemental ion transmission using only helium gas.

Newly Designed Interface
The newly designed interface allows for easy maintainability. All parts can be removed and installed without the need for tools, which helps minimize downtime associated with cleaning and servicing.

High Stability and Flexibility, New High-Frequency Power Supply
Shimadzu is the world’s first ICP manufacturer to develop an all-solid-state high-frequency power supply. Due to Shimadzu’s extensive experience, this free-running type high-frequency power supply unit offers the highest output

High Stability and Low Running Costs
Shimadzu’s Proprietary Mini-Torch Plasma System Based on Shimadzu’s extensive experience developing ICP emission spectrometers, Shimadzu’s independently-developed mini-torch unit offers unrivaled performance and savings. One of the highest costs associated with ICP-MS systems is the large quantity of argon gas they consume. However, Shimadzu’s proprietary mini-torch plasma system consumes two-thirds the argon gas (10 L/min) as conventional plasma torches. Furthermore, during standby when Eco mode is active, the plasma gas flow and power are reduced to 5 L/min and 0.5 kW to minimize the required gas and electricity; however, analysis can be started immediately with no loss of productivity.

Easy-to-Maintain Sample Injection System
Cyclone Chamber Cooled by a Peltier Element The sample injection system features an electronically-cooled cyclone chamber utilizing a highly efficient coaxial nebulizer and unique overflow drain design. This design combines highly efficient aerosol production while reducing carryover to maximize sensitivity and throughput.
