Two Assistant Functions Simplify Analysis

The Development Assistant simplifies the process of developing analytical methods. The Diagnosis Assistant automatically diagnoses spectral interference. Together, they provide analytical results with exceptionally high reliability.

Development Assistant Function Ensures Analytical Methods
Can Be Developed with Confidence by Anyone.

Creating analytical methods for ICPMS-2030 analysis involves only selecting the measured and target elements, even for samples being analyzed for the first time. Then, based on the qualitative analysis data (for all mass numbers) from a representative sample, the Development Assistant automatically selects the optimal mass numbers and internal standard elements for the target measurement elements and automatically specifies the concentration range for calibration curve samples.

Obtain Reliable Results Quickly with the Diagnosis Assistant Function.

The Diagnosis Assistant automatically diagnoses spectral interference, based on data measured from all mass numbers. Even when using an already established method for routine analysis, the software analyzes data for any spectral interference to determine if a problem occurred.

Unique Combination Eco Mode/Mini-Torch Reduces Running Cost by Dramatically Reducing Gas Consumption

In addition to lower running costs, the environmentally-friendly mini-torch plasma unit, developed by Shimadzu, minimizes the energy (electricity) consumed in producing and maintaining an argon plasma.

Three Factors That Reduce Running Costs

Mini-Torch Plasma Unit

One of the highest costs associated with ICP-MS systems is the large quantity of argon gas they consume. However, Shimadzu’s proprietary mini-torch plasma system consumes two-thirds the argon gas (10 L/min) as conventional plasma torches. Consequently, one gas cylinder of argon (~7,800 liters) allows for approximately ten hours of continuous operation.

Eco Mode (5 L/min of Plasma)

During standby when Eco mode is active, the plasma gas flow and power are reduced to 5 L/min and 0.5 kW to minimize the required gas and electricity; however, analysis can be started immediately with no loss of productivity.

Low-Purity Argon Compatible

High-purity argon gas required by conventional systems is no longer necessary. Using less expensive argon gas (99.95%) over a three-year period can reduce costs by several tens-of-thousands of dollars.

Designed for High Stability and Low Running Costs

New High-Frequency Power Supply!

Shimadzu is the world’s first ICP manufacturer to develop an all-solid-state high-frequency power supply. Due to Shimadzu’s extensive experience, this free-running type high-frequency power supply unit offers the highest output stability. * As of December 2015, based on data obtained by Shimadzu

ICPMS-2030

More Compact Vacuum System!

The smaller three-stage split-flow turbomolecular pump is especially easy to maintain, maximizing up-time of the instrument.

Secondary Electron Multiplier Tube Detector!

The 9-digit dynamic range detector allows for measuring major components and trace components simultaneously with high sensitivity.

Lens System Minimizes Contamination!

Located behind the newly developed collision cell, the focusing lens improves ion transmission efficiency and elimination of light emission from the plasma. * Light emission removal is especially important when combining with Laser Ablation systems.

Newly Developed Collision Cell!

The newly developed collision cell achieves superior sensitivity by providing highly efficient molecular ion removal and high elemental ion transmission using only helium gas.

Newly Designed Interface!

The newly designed interface allows for easy maintainability. All parts can be removed and installed without the need for tools, which helps minimize downtime associated with cleaning and servicing.

High Stability and Low Running Costs

Shimadzu’s Proprietary Mini-Torch Plasma System
Based on Shimadzu’s extensive experience developing ICP emission spectrometers, Shimadzu’s independently-developed mini-torch unit offers unrivaled performance and savings. One of the highest costs associated with ICP-MS systems is the large quantity of argon gas they consume. However, Shimadzu’s proprietary mini-torch plasma system consumes two-thirds the argon gas (10 L/min) as conventional plasma torches. Furthermore, during standby when Eco mode is active, the plasma gas flow and power are reduced to 5 L/min and 0.5 kW to minimize the required gas and electricity; however, analysis can be started immediately with no loss of productivity.

Easy-to-Maintain Sample Injection System

Cyclone Chamber Cooled by a Peltier Element
The sample injection system features an electronically-cooled cyclone chamber utilizing a highly efficient coaxial nebulizer and unique overflow drain design. This design combines highly efficient aerosol production while reducing carryover to maximize sensitivity and throughput.

Environmental, Drinking Water, and Wastewater Analysis

Natural resources such as rivers, oceans, and soil are limited and we all share an obligation to preserve them for our future generations. In the world we live in today, we continue to place a burden on those resources through such practices as industrial manufacturing. It is essential that we preserve and protect our environment and our resources through reuse, recycling resources and reducing pollution. These can only be accomplished through monitoring by conducting massive amounts of measurements. To this end, Shimadzu provides a simple and accurate means of measuring samples so that recycling processes and manufacturing processes can be managed properly and responsibly.

Pharmaceuticals/Pharmacopoeia

Many of the pharmaceuticals, food products, and other products we encounter can contain harmful elements, either introduced from natural sources or artificially through manufacturing processes. ICP-MS systems are able to quickly measure harmful elements with high sensitivity, making them ideal for monitoring such substances and ensuring the safety and security of pharmaceuticals, foods, and other products. Additionally, pharmaceuticals must satisfy the allowable limits specified by ICH Q3D guidelines, where the measurement methods used are specified in the pharmacopoeia of respective countries. The system must also be compliant with quality control standards specified by the FDA and Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

Food Products/Agriculture

We rely on foods to provide necessary elements and minerals required for supporting life. However, if food contains hazardous elements, they can be harmful to our health. Therefore, analyzing food has become increasingly important in recent years for ensuring the safety of food. One example of this is powdered infant formula which is made with a healthy balance of minerals necessary for infant growth. Regulatory requirements specify the amounts of calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), copper (Cu), and other essential minerals and while limiting hazardous elements like arsenic (As), which has detrimental effects on child development. The ICP-MS is able to quickly measure a wide variety of elements in powdered milk products and other foods, including raw ingredient and finished products.

LC-ICP-MS

The environment, pharmaceuticals, food and other products can contain elements in different chemical form or oxidation states. Speciation of these is sometimes required.

By combining different analytical techniques like LC-ICP-MS, speciation of chemical forms can be achieved with high sensitivity. This is accomplished by connecting the ICPMS-2030 in-line with an LC (Shimadzu Prominence Inert LC) system. LabSolutions ICPMS TRM (time-resolved measurement) software controls the LC (Shimadzu Prominence Inert LC System) from the ICPMS-2030, allowing for one smooth platform that automatically detects and measures analyte peaks.
