Microwave Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (MP-AES)

Know You Can Measure Elements Without the Cost and Risk of Flammable Gases

Agilent microwave plasma atomic emission spectrometers (MP-AES) have higher sensitivity, lower detection limits (down to sub-ppb levels) and are faster than conventional flame atomic absorption (FAA). MP-AES systems “run on air” instead of combustible gases, so are safer to operate and, in utilizing a nitrogen plasma, are capable of delivering the lowest cost of ownership. When coupled with the extensive range of MP-AES accessories that are also available, you are sure to meet your goals.

Joaquim A. Nobrega

Professor, Federal University of Sao Carlos, Brazil

"Two important advantages of this instrument are its low running costs and laboratory safety, as no expensive or flammable gases are required. Considering cost, performance, and multi-element capabilities, the Agilent MP-AES is a suitable and efficient alternative to flame AA for this application (determination of silicon in diesel and biodiesel) and presents better performance for critical elements such as the one investigated here."

Michael Wang

General Manager, Etran Technologies

"We used the MP-AES to integrate into our automated river water monitoring technology, which formerly used colorimetric and electrochemistry analyzers. With the MP-AES system integrated into our technology, we can quickly analyze all the elements we want with excellent repeatability, accuracy and detection limits. The low cost of operation and inherent safety of the MP-AES also makes it ideally suited to this remote river water application."

Mr. John Erasmus

DISTELL, South Africa

"Agilent’s MP-AES is well suited for the rapid elemental analysis of liquid samples such as wine and spirits. Because it is automated, it is easy to load and use, and frees-up valuable staff time with its walk-away platform. Replacing our AA instruments with the Agilent’s MP-AES has enabled us to increase both the volume and range of samples we analyze in our laboratory. The platform is robust and can quickly perform sensitive multi-element analyses on a single sample, and provides rich analysis data with its impressive software capabilities. Its lack of drift provides a consistent QC range—even after 180 sample runs—which was not the case with the AA instrument. I would recommend Agilent

Anthea Harris

Team Leader , University of Technology, Sydney

"The MP-AES integrated into the Undergraduate teaching course seamlessly and introduced the students to the latest technology in elemental analysis. The new MP-AES removed the concern that we previously had over the use and handling of acetylene in the laboratory. The multi elemental analysis that the MP-AES offers has widened the scope of the teaching experiments that our students undertake."
