"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."
"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."
"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
