Thermo Fisher Scientific Announces Enhanced iCAP 6200 Optical Emission Spectrometer



New Low-cost Solution Offers Extended Analyte Coverage and Lower Detection Limits

CAMBRIDGE, UK - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced the enhanced Thermo Scientific iCAP 6200 inductively coupled optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES). The iCAP 6200 ICP-OES now incorporates a wider wavelength range of 175-847nm. This enables users to measure a broader range of analytes during multi-element analyses and access more sensitive wavelengths for improved analyte detection capability.

The iCAP 6200 ICP-OES is a simultaneous, dual-view instrument that provides a low-cost alternative to flame atomic absorption (Flame AA). The instrument is a simple, multi-element analysis solution for laboratories that perform routine analyses of up to 100 samples per day. With its enhanced specifications, the iCAP 6200 can now measure sulfur as part of a multi-element method in addition to the most sensitive mercury, thallium, carbon, tin, phosphorous, arsenic and iodine wavelengths. Enhanced analytical performance is combined with award-winning design features that reduce running costs and simplify operation, making the iCAP 6200 ICP-OES an ideal solution for first- time users of the technique.

Designed for a wide variety of applications, including food and consumer safety, environmental, mining and WEEE/RoHS testing, the iCAP 6200 ICP-OES is a powerful and cost-efficient trace elemental analysis solution. The instrument features an optimized gas distribution system to minimize gas consumption and dramatically reduce running costs. These cost-saving features include a unique torch design that reduces plasma gas consumption and an optimized plasma interface gas flow that consumes only one liter per minute.

The compact iCAP 6200 ICP-OES requires minimal bench space and ensures excellent signal stability, analyte detection and wide dynamic range. The instrument includes a range of pre-loaded method templates, developed to enable protocol-compliant sample analysis and unlimited access to a new dynamic method library, hosted online at www.thermoscientific.com/iteva-software. These templates complement the pre-optimized sample introduction specifications of the instrument, enabling simple, consistent operation and powerful analytical performance for users at any level.

For more on how ICP-OES technology can be used to enhance productivity and detection limits, Thermo Fisher Scientific has created an on-demand webinar entitled "AA Overworked, High Specification ICP Overkill! What is the Solution?" It covers the merits of iCAP 6200 ICP-OES as a low-cost alternative to AA. To view the webinar, visit http://www.spectroscopynow.com/thermowebinars.
