High fluence laser ablation ICP-MS
for the most challenging matrices.

Accurate and precise results on even the most challenging sample types.

The high energy 193nm excimer laser source produces small particles for efficient transport and ionization with fluences high enough to efficiently ablate even the most resilient matrices (e.g. quartz, fluorite) and enable large, homogeneous spot sizes for extremely low detection limits.


Improved sensitivity and stability with reduced maintenance.
