The 4200 MP-AES features a variety of unique capabilities:Safe and economical – Because flammable and oxidizing gas sources are not required for use, the system can be left unattended while performing overnight multi-element analysis, which dramatically increases laboratory safety and flexibility and reduces operating costs compared to Flame AA. Robustness and reliability – Optimized high-performance waveguide and new torch design produces a robust nitrogen plasma, which enables greater tolerance to complex matrix samples such as those used in mining, food and agriculture, chemicals, petrochemicals and manufacturing. Mass flow control of the nebulizer gas enhances accuracy and long term stability in complex samples. Ease of use – Application-specific software applets plus plug-and-play hardware ensures that with just minimal training, any user can quickly and easily conduct analyses without the need for method development or alignment. Advanced software platform – Newly released MP Expert software features advanced tools such as “FLIC” and IECs for assisting in eliminating spectral interferences. Mobile and remote capabilities – With no external cylinder connections and no need for ongoing gas supplies, the MP-AES is ideal for any elemental analysis laboratory—especially remote sites and mobile laboratories. This eliminates the need to plumb multiple gasses into the laboratory or manually transport and handle hazardous gas cylinders.
