Assistant Functions

Two Assistant Functions Simplify Analysis

The Development Assistant simplifies the process of developing analytical methods. The Diagnosis Assistant automatically diagnoses spectral interference. Together, they provide analytical results with exceptionally high reliability.

Development Assistant Function Ensures Analytical Methods Can Be Developed with Confidence by Anyone.

Creating analytical methods for ICPMS analysis involves only selecting the measured and target elements, even for samples being analyzed for the first time. Then, based on the qualitative analysis data (for all mass numbers) from a representative sample, the Development Assistant automatically selects the optimal mass numbers and internal standard elements for the target measurement elements and automatically specifies the concentration range for calibration curve samples.

Obtain Reliable Results Quickly with the Diagnosis Assistant Function.

The Diagnosis Assistant automatically diagnoses spectral interference, based on data measured from all mass numbers. Even when using an already established method for routine analysis, the software analyzes data for any spectral interference to determine if a problem occurred.

Higher Sensitivity and Lower Interference

Achieve High-Sensitivity and Low-interference Analyses Using Newly Developed Collision Cell

With this newly developed collision cell, polyatomic ions that previously may have been detected as spectral interference are efficiently eliminated by helium gas flowing through the cell, allowing the high-sensitivity analysis.


Quantitative Analysis of 75As

If chlorine is in the sample when performing quantitative analysis of 75As, 40Ar and 35Cl combine to form 40Ar35Cl, which overlaps the mass number of As, creating interference.

The collision cell eliminates the spectral interference from Cl, enabling the highly sensitive measurement of As.

On-Line IEC (Inter-Element Correction)

Shimadzu's proprietary On-Line IEC (Inter Element Correction) provides correction for spectral interference that could not be eliminated with the collision cell. Since the interference correction coefficient can be acquired only by a single measurement of a standard sample of the interfering element, the correction can be simply and accurately made. There's no need for complicated assessments of conditions, as with reaction cell technology.

Quantitative Analysis of 78Se

If 156Gd is in the sample when performing quantitative analysis of 78Se, spectral interference will occur with respect to 78Se.

By measuring a standard sample of Gd, the correction coefficient can be obtained. Then, the portion where interference occurs can be corrected when measuring the unknown sample, and the accurate quantitation of 78Se can be accomplished.
