Press Release Summary:
Featuring S-155 sample cell with 155 x 105 mm working area, RESOlution DUV Laser Ablation System for LA-ICP-MS analytical instruments is available with range of sample holders, all with top-surface sample referencing. Holders can accommodate 15-26 mm samples and 12-13 mm standards, 3-165 mm long slots for 28-30 mm microscope slides, or any combination of above. With 38 mm headroom, S-155 minimizes condensation of ablated material on window for decreased element fractionation.

Resonetics Announces an Important Upgrade to Their RESOlution Line of DUV (193nm) Laser Ablation Systems
NASHUA, N.H., -- Resonetics announces an important upgrade to their RESOlution line of DUV (193nm) laser ablation systems for LA-ICP-MS analytical instruments: a 6X larger two-volume sample cell, the S-155 by Laurin Technic (Michael Shelley), with 155x105 mm working area. The S-155 improves two-volume sampling technology with 38 mm headroom to minimize condensation of ablated material on the window for decreased element fractionation and increased sensitivity. Sample washout time is further reduced while halving helium usage; the effective sampling volume is few cubic cm and ensures uniform ablation characteristics everywhere on the sample. Removing the window for cleaning takes a few seconds.
A range of sample holders are available (all with top-surface sample referencing) accommodating up to qty 15-26mm samples and qty 12-13mm standards, or qty 3-165-mm-long slots for 28-30 mm microscope slides, or any combination of the above. A universal holder with sample area of 155x105 and depth 31 mm (illustrated with Apple® iPhone for scale) with the clamping kit will mount irregularly-shaped samples like speleothems or corals.
The S-155 cell is also available as an upgrade to installed standard RESOlution instruments and integrates with GeoStar sample-navigation software and vision hardware.
About Resonetics LLC:
Resonetics is the largest total solution provider of laser micromachining products and services in the world. It is also regarded as having the largest independent plastic (polymer) laser micromachining facility with more than 50 UV-based laser micromachining systems and with three clean rooms.
Laser micromachining represents a critical fabrication technology for the manufacturing of medical devices, diagnostics, and a variety of non-medical products as the machining features become increasingly small.
The US-based company has three separate business divisions: The Medical Division, The Laser Micromachining Division (for Contract Manufacturing Services) and The Laser Systems Division (for capital equipment).
