Watch Video: Glass Expansion IsoMist XR Temperature Controlled Spray Chamber

To meet the demand for a reliable and convenient temperature controlled cyclonic spray chamber Glass Expansion developed the IsoMist in 2007. On the 10th anniversary of the IsoMist release, Glass Expansion is proud to present the all-new IsoMist XR temperature-controlled cyclonic spray chamber. 

The IsoMist XR incorporates an improved thermodynamic design, providing an extended temperature range and faster equilibration so that your target temperature is attained more quickly. The spray chamber temperature of the IsoMist XR is accurately controlled using a multi-stage Peltier device, with a range of -25 to +80 degrees Celsius in increments of one degree.

The IsoMist XR comes standard with Glass Expansion’s proven Twister cyclonic spray chamber encapsulated with a temperature conductive resin to provide a uniform spray chamber temperature from top to bottom and an air tight fit within the module. These features allow for a stable temperature to be maintained with an unmatched accuracy of +/- 0.1 degree Celsius. 

The temperature of a sample introduction system has a profound effect on ICP-OES and ICP-MS performance. Adding the IsoMist XR guarantees optimum performance for any ICP-OES and ICP-MS application…

Maintaining a constant temperature with the IsoMist XR improves analytical reproducibility and accuracy, enhances throughput and lowers operating costs by reducing the need to re-run samples due to instrument drift.

Using the IsoMist XR spray chamber at sub-ambient temperature reduces sample transport to the plasma. This results in lower oxide formation and reduced polyatomic interferences, improving accuracy and detection limits for ICP-MS applications. 

The extended temperature range makes the IsoMist XR the perfect tool for analyzing volatile solvents. With the ability to maintain a temperature of -25 degrees Celsius, the IsoMist XR allows for the direct analysis of naphtha without dilution resulting in higher intensities, better precision, and higher accuracy compared to previous work at -10 degrees Celsius. 

The sensitivity for many analyses can be enhanced by operating the spray chamber at elevated temperatures. For example, the IsoMist XR showed improved accuracy and signal intensity for Pt and other precious metals at a temperature range of 30 to 45 degrees Celsius. Heating the spray chamber also improves the analysis of viscous samples such as lubricants and edible oils, in addition to limited sample volumes.

The IsoMist XR is compatible with interchangeable glass, quartz and PFA cyclonic spray chambers, offering the analyst the utmost flexibility and optimum setup for any matrix. 

Glass Expansion’s proprietary Helix nebulizer interface eliminates sample contamination and ensures easy nebulizer removal. This zero dead volume nebulizer interface reduces carry-over, improves washout between samples and a built-in positive stop ensures optimum and reproducible nebulizer insertion depth for consistent nebulizer to nebulizer performance. 

The IsoMist XR is an elegant, compact, stand-alone system compatible with any ICP-OES or ICP-MS instrument.  

For maximum convenience, the IsoMist XR can be controlled through your PC via a USB cable or wirelessly with a Bluetooth interface kit.
