Overview - aurora Elite, a new Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) for Trace Elemental Detection

Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS)

The Science of sensitivity

Bruker’s ICP-MS is famous for its innovative and unique technology and has now been further refined to meet the ever increasing demands of latest application and laboratory requirements.

Bruker’s aurora M90 continues to be the workhorse for the routine laboratory, now with additional and improved characteristics. In addition to the aurora M90, Bruker offers a second model, the aurora Elite, the new high-end performance offering in Bruker’s ICP-MS range, setting new and exceptional standards for sensitivity and matrix robustness in ICP-MS.

Key features for the aurora M90 and the aurora Elite include now:

  • Industry leading Sensitivity: 1.5GHz/ppm sensitivity in ‘High Sensitivity’ mode and 400,000 cps/ppb in ‘Normal Sensitivity’ mode  (mid masses)  for the aurora Elite
  • Faster scan speeds and shorter Integration times: offers an unmatched performance combination for faster transient signal analysis such as LA-ICP-MS and LC-ICP-MS.
  • Lowest cost of ownership: rugged design, durable cone system, no expensive spare parts, and a unique all-digital detector with a typical lifetime of more than 5 years.
  • Full 21 CFR Part 11 compliance support for Quantum ICP-MS software: to meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry aurora’s Quantum software with CompassCDS offers new features such as audit trails, electronic signatures and user management.
  • External Device Control: bidirectional triggering for seamless connectivity to laser ablation and chromatographic devices.
  • Improved air flow management inside the instrument: with a significantly reduced exhaust flow requirement which reduces installation cost and is of particular interest in clean room environments.
