Ion Lenses for 7500 from Agilent
Agilent manufactures a range of high quality ion lenses for use with the 7500 ICP-MS portfolio. Electrostatic ion lenses keep ions focused in a compact "ion beam" as they pass through the vacuum system to the final chamber, where the mass spectrometer and detector are housed. The ion lenses also separate ions from photons and residual neutral material. The use of an “off-axis” ion lens arrangement gives higher ion transmission across a wider mass range compared to alternative configurations. The off-axis design does not use a photon stop, so there is much higher overall ion transmission through the instrument. A range of components and accessories are also available.
