The NexION 1100 is a single-analyzer ICP-MS with three quad-design and a single gas channel, boasting a unique combination of proprietary technologies:

  • Proprietary three-quad design provides three stages of mass resolution:
    • Quadrupole Ion Deflector (Q0) directs ions to the Universal Cell (Q1) with varied voltages, so target ion sensitivity is maximized while unwanted masses are reduced.
    • Quadrupole Universal Cell (Q1) comes standard with one cell gas channel with upgrade option to three channels with on-the-fly gas mixing capability for Collision and Reaction modes.
    • Transmission Analyzer Quadrupole (Q2, full-sized for < 0.7 amu mass resolution) acts as a mass filter or as an ion guide to direct ions to the detector.
  • Single gas channel provides universal solution for most applications, leveraging helium only for Collision mode or helium-hydrogen mix for Collision and Reaction modes, so you can easily switch between modes without changing gas. The single gas channel can also accommodate pure reaction gases and can be upgraded to two or three channels, for even stronger interference removal capability.
  • Proprietary Extended Dynamic Range (EDR) increases linear dynamic range to 1014, allowing to run both high- and low-concentration analytes in a single analytical run, resulting in fewer re-runs.
  • Powerful All Matrix Solution (AMS) allows online gas dilution, improving efficiency and preventing contamination, delivering up to 200x dilution and the ability to support samples with up to 35% total dissolved solids.
  • Novel free-running RF Generator with proprietary LumiCoil RF load coil, especially designed for ICP-MS applications, provides accurate impedance matching to easily handle the most difficult matrices and solvents. This revolutionary combination delivers superior plasma power and stability for uncompromised performance, robustness, and reliability.
  • Low maintenance for greater uptime:
    • Triple Cone Interface and Quadrupole Ion Deflector combination deliver no maintenance beyond cones, for continual operation and improved stability.
    • 34 MHz free-running RF Generator offers trouble-free user experience – the plasma is generated by the unique LumiCoil RF load coil, which does not require water or gas cooling, so maintenance-free, eliminating need to replace plasma load coils.
  • Innovative LCD touchscreen allows you to perform critical day-to-day tasks, including hardware control, results reviews, instrument parameter diagnostics, analytics, access to embedded training videos, and more.
  • External status LED lighting provides easy visibility of state of analysis, optimizing efficiencies in the laboratory.
  • Syngistix™ for ICP-MS software v.4.0 or higher uplevels the user experience with a modern database backend for easier LIMS integration and new FastQuant Data Viewer for easier review, reprocessing and exporting.
