Company News: Thermo Fisher Ships 2,000th ICP Emission Spectrometer

iCAP 6300 series system is useful for its small footprint.

Published: Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 10:54

(Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.: Cambridge, UK) -- Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, recently announced that Bormioli Rocco, a producer of glass and plastic pharmaceutical packaging, glass containers for perfumery and foodstuffs, and glass tableware, has purchased and deployed the 2,000th Thermo Scientific iCAP 6000 Series inductively coupled plasma (ICP) emission spectrometer. The Bormioli Rocco company relies on ICP emission spectrometry to ensure that alkaline metal concentrations in their glass materials conform to current European legislation. Since deployment, Bormioli Rocco has increased lab productivity while lowering its costs.

Bormioli Rocco selected the Thermo Scientific iCAP 6300 Duo ICP for its flexibility and exceptional performance capabilities, which ensure accurate, precise analytical results and higher productivity. Also important was the small footprint of the system, which makes it easier to transport and install, an important benefit for modern labs where bench space is increasingly limited.

“Our iCAP 6000 Series delivers outstanding performance, ease of use, and low cost of ownership, all in a uniquely compact instrument," says  Gareth Jones, product group director of trace elemental analysis at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “These benefits are possible because of the expertise, hard work, and commitment that goes into producing such a superior analytical solution. Achieving the 2,000th order milestone clearly demonstrates that customers value the instrument’s quality and reliability."

The iCAP 6300 Duo ICP spectrometer features dedicated radial and duo plasma viewing options for enhanced application flexibility. The instrument’s high-efficiency optical design facilitates simultaneous analysis of 66 elements, providing detection limits at less than 1 part per billion. In addition, the system offers powerful full-frame technology for fingerprinting and retrospective analysis, as well as unique EMT torch technology for routine maintenance operations without switching off the plasma.

Laboratories use the iCAP 6000 Series ICP emission spectrometers to detect and measure low levels of toxic elements and a diverse range of pollutant elements in the global environmental, metallurgical, petrochemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries. In spring 2009, the iCAP 6000 received a Queens Award for Enterprise as one of the year’s most outstanding technical innovations; and it was a finalist in the IMechE Business Innovation of the Year Category of the National Business Awards.
