Exciting LA Instrumentation Advances at 14th European Workshop on Laser Ablation


14th European Workshop on Laser Ablation

The 14th EWLA conference is a great technical forum for analytical researchers from Europe and other parts of the world to share the advances of LA-ICP-MS for a wide range of applications. And this year, the conference is expected to see a growing list of exciting applications! Also, the conference is seeing a greater number of technical presentations on the rapidly growing LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) – another LA based analytical technique!

Applied Spectra is ready to showcase our latest LA and LIBS instrumentation advances at the 14th European Workshop on Laser Ablation. Discover how LIBS and LA-ICP-MS can work together to cover a greater concentration dynamic range and to measure difficult elements with ICP-MS alone (such as C, H, O, N, S, F, and other halogens)! Visit our booth #3 and we’d love to talk to you about the technical benefits of our J200 Tandem LA–LIBS technology, along with the following product features and news:

  • All new J200 Femto iX LA Instrument – femtosecond LA-ICP-MS and LIBS at highly affordable cost
  • Vertex™ and Flex™ sampling cell innovation
  • Enhanced multi-channel CCD LIBS detector – significant limit of detection improvement at insignificant cost increase
  • LIBS2 Technology – eliminate performance compromise between detection sensitivity and broadband spectral coverage with the use of dual detectors.
  • Clarity Image – Powerful LA-ICP-MS and LIBS data analysis software for elemental imaging.

See you soon in Pau, France!
