Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the enhanced iCAP 6200 inductively coupled optical emission spectrometer. The compact device now incorporates a wider wavelength range of 175 to 847 nm, enabling users to measure a greater variety of analytes during multielement analyses and to access more sensitive wavelengths for improved detection capability. The dual-view instrument provides an alternative to flame atomic absorption. It is a simple tool for laboratories that perform routine analyses of up to 100 samples per day. In addition to the most sensitive mercury, thallium, carbon, tin, phosphorus, arsenic and iodine wavelengths, the instrument can now measure sulfur as part of a multielement method. The trace elemental analysis tool has applications in food safety and environmental testing.
