SVL is proud to announce our latest laboratory equipment acquisition: the Agilent Model 5110 ICP-OES Spectrometer.

The Agilent 5110 ICP-OES Instrument features unique Dichroic Spectral Combiner (DSC) technology that enables synchronous radial and axial measurements. Combined with a vertical torch and high speed, zero gas consumption VistaChip II CCD detector, the 5110 ICP-OES (also referred to as ICP-AES) runs even your toughest samples up to 55% faster using 50% less argon, without any compromise on analytical performance.

SVL has been able to increase our sample throughput (and obtain lower method detection limits – MDL’s) with this instrument. Previous instrumentation run times were about 3.5 minutes (for 36 elements). Run times on the Agilent 5100 are about 2.5 minutes which will give SVL a 40% productivity boost.

SVL continues to invest in the latest analytical technologies. When we learn about new technologies, SVL invests time and energy into determining if the technology will provide benefit both to SVL and the client.
