Over the last 25 years ICP-OES spectrometers, also known as ICP-AES or ICP plasma spectrometers, have become an indispensable tool for chemical elemental analysis. Optical emission spectrometers with inductively coupled plasma (ICP plasma) excitation sources offer ease of use, high sensitivity and precision and relative freedom from interferences. ICP-OES systems have now become the analytical method of choice for a wide range of applications.
Since the introduction of its first ICP spectrometer, SPECTRO has managed to continuously set performance benchmarks. Today, the new SPECTRO ARCOS*, an ICP instrument with a unique optical system, is probably the most powerful, flexible, and fastest ICP spectrometer, the world has ever seen. The SPECTRO GENESIS is the first and only ICP-OES spectrometer available with a complete set of factory calibrated methods for environmental and industrial applications – it truly is “plug & analyze” without needing to first develop a method. SPECTROBLUE is the most recent addition to SPECTRO’S comprehensive line up of ICP-OES spectrometers. SPECTROBLUE is a compact, midrange ICP-OES solution that brings a new level of performance to routine laboratory analysis in industrial and environmental applications.
