Sample Introduction Kits
Complete Sample Introduction Kits
ESI Sample Introduction Kits are designed to be extremely stable and provide the highest performance and sensitivity. These kits provide complete application-based sample introduction solutions spanning from the peripump tubing through to the torch for many ICP and ICPMS systems.
Fluorospray Inert Sample Intro Kits are an o-ring-free system of high-purity, high-stability, HF-resistant sample introduction kit for selected ICP and ICPMS systems. Fluorospray kits are pre-cleaned for ultra-low detection limits, and provide excellent short-term and long-term stability through a novel spray chamber design that improves matrix tolerance while maintaining ultralow backgrounds for all elements. Both Quartz and Nitride Torch equipped kits are available.
HF-Resistant Sample Intro Kits provide an HF-resistant introduction system with all wetted surfaces consisting of PFA, sapphire, or platinum. They are utilized by laboratories analyzing semiconductor-grade chemicals, high purity chemicals, and geochemical/metallurgical applications where HF-resistant sample introduction components are required.
Standard Sample Intro Kits provide the complete introduction systems required by most laboratories. These include routine sample applications as well as samples containing high salts/matrices and organic solvents. Quartz and Nitride Torch equipped Sample Intro Kits are available for specific application requirements.

pergo Argon Humidifiers
Uninterrupted Analysis for ICP and ICPMS Analyses
The pergo Argon Nebulizer Gas Humidifiers are designed for use with both ICP and ICPMS, improving concentric nebulizer performance and providing humification to the nebulizer gas flow for optimal signal generation in the plasma. Low-pressure and optional temperature-controlled operation provides an unmatched level of safety and stability, leading to uninterrupted analyses and maintenance-free operation.
The pergo enhances concentric nebulizer sensitivity and stability by preventing unnoticed salt crystals from forming in the nebulizer tip – eliminating them well before a clogged tip is detected. A water vapor permeable membrane humidifies the nebulizer gas stream, improving short- and long-term signal stability for both ICP and ICPMS systems. The patented design supports either one or two independent gas flows, uniquely and safely humidifying sample introduction flows all from one module.
