Vitesse Time of Flight ICP-MS for laser ablation and imaging applications

This webinar will show the performance of the recently announced Vitesse ICP-MS from Nu Instruments. The talk will highlight the benefits for laser ablation work of the fast data acquisition of multiple simultaneous isotopes and always on collision cell for interference removal. The methods of data acquisition and data processing will be discussed and how the combination of new laser ablation technology with ultra-fast washout cells combined with the fast data collection of Vitesse is the ideal configuration for imaging applications. Examples of images generated with the system will be shown using a variety of image display software to show the flexibility of Vitesse to meet most researcher’s requirements.

Speed of analysis is important for many laboratories as speed will almost always equate to cost. Speed of analysis is also critical to many analytical techniques as the signal from an item to be measured can be short in duration such as a nanoparticle. We will discuss how speed of measurement can affect different applications and highlight areas where speed is crucial to accuracy and precision.

Sensitivity is generally viewed as crucial for improving precisions in most analyses but the way in which a sample is presented to the instrument and the ability of the instrument to collect data for all analytes of interest without losing information presents more difficulties to the analyst. We will discuss how “real-world” sensitivities can be optimised and considered differently to simple instrument figures of merit from brochures.

Selectivity ensures that accuracy is preserved when there are interferences in the analytical method. We will discuss how Nu Instruments have been pursuing improvements in analyte selectivity to provide higher levels of accuracy to users.
