Are You Sure About the Quality and Performance of Your ICP-MS Cones?
We put them to the test in our latest
Only Agilent cones meet our strict manufacturing specifications, confirmed by our 100% quality inspection, and protected by our custom packaging. The result: you get the sensitivity and stability that you expect from your single-quadrupole and triple-quadrupole ICP-MS systems.
Insights from the report
In our study, we compared Agilent interface cones with those from different suppliers, focusing on properties critical to ICP-MS performance. Here’s what we found:
Genuine Agilent cones deliver superior sensitivity across the mass range
Third-party cones showed lower sensitivity as received, and after following our conditioning guidelines.
Agilent and third-party cones show a significant difference in stability
Agilent ICP-MS cones ensure robust conditions, improving signal stability and matrix tolerance.
Third-party cones can compromise short- and long-term stabilityâ€”leading to sample reruns and lost productivity.
All cones are not created equal
We uncovered differences in weight between Agilent cones and third-party manufactured cones. This implies that
third-party cones deviate from the Agilent design, which can negatively impact performance.
