Ultrasonic nebulizer for ICP-OES / ICP-MS: CETAC USN
USN Ultrasonic transducerheatercooler
type CETAC U-5000 AT
spec Ultrasonic nebulizer. Increases sensitivity of ICP measurement by a factor of 10 for most elements by very fine and effective nebulization followed by desolvatization.
connection Connected to ICP by standard Tygon tubing. External replacement for pneumatic nebulizers. Approx. 95 % of sample is transferred into ICP-plasma
sample uptake 0.5 to 1.0 mL /min
tips + tricks

Useless for ICP-MS when the salt load of sample is high, since the sensitivity gain stems from preconcentration of sample which also preconcentrates the bulk salt load of the sample.
