The new iCAP TQs ICP-MS (triple-quadrupole inductively coupled mass spectrometer) retains all the benefits of size and ease of use through streamlined workflows of the existing product line while also providing improved data quality and performance through a combination of cold plasma operation and powerful triple-quadrupole interference removal. When combined with the Qtegra Intelligent Scientific Data software, an intuitive UI, and the Reaction Finder tool, fabrication facilities can reduce time-consuming method development and be faster and more productive. The system requires minimal user maintenance and includes a fully inert sample introduction system, a dry pump for cleanroom environments, and a dedicated gas distribution unit for lab safety and maximum flexibility. An ergonomic benchtop design with a compact footprint limits the use of valuable lab space and facilitates integration with specially designed peripherals for inline monitoring of process chemicals or for vapor phase deposition analysis.
