J200 Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) Instrument
The J200 LIBS instrument is Applied Spectra’s flagship system. It is designed specifically to handle the most demanding trace element analyses — those requiring high sensitivity and accuracy. With a single-digit ppm level detection limit for many elements in the periodic table, the J200 LIBS is an ideal instrument for challenging quantitative elemental analysis with many sample matrices.
The J200 LIBS instrument is well suited for both laboratory analysis and production monitoring applications. The instrument is capable of monitoring single or multiple elements of analytical interest. With several hardware upgrade options available, the J200 LIBS is configurable to provide different laser ablation environments, thus allowing our customers to perform highly innovative LIBS research. The robust instrument design ensures repeatable measurement results with every laser pulse.
The J200 LIBS instrument uses an Nd:YAG laser for ablating samples. The laser wavelength is carefully chosen to provide the best analytical results for each customer’s unique application. In addition, the type of spectrometer that is best fit for the customer’s applications is included with the instrument, providing solutions unique and appropriate for every analytical situation.
Highlights of the J200 LIBS Instrument:
All of our J200 series instruments come with Applied Spectra’s powerful Axiom software, which includes our TruLIBS database. Axiom features a simple, intuitive graphical interface that allows multiple users to operate the instrument software with different access privileges. Thus, the same J200 instrument can be used by production line operators to simply run a prepared measurement recipe for routine quality control work, or by the laboratory scientists to perform cutting-edge elemental research.

LIBS Application Notes
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) offers the ability to analyze plant samples with little to no sample preparation, provides detection of all elements in the periodic table, and has a large dynamic range (ppm to wt. %).
