25,000th Spectrometer Will Be Used to Examine Geological Samples.

Jan 24 2007

Spectro Analytical, a leader in analytical instruments for energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence analysis (EDXRF) and optical emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-OES), has produced and delivered its 25,000th analytical instrument. The instrument, a Spectro CIROS VISION ICP-OES spectrometer, was purchased by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia, to examine environmental and geological samples.

The Spectro CIROS VISION, with the special serial number marking its status as Spectro's 25,000th instrument, will be used by Acme in Vancouver for a wide range of applications. Acme employs ICP-OES technology to examine soil, sludge, water and waste water as well as rocks. Another important application for the CIROS VISION is measurement of the precious metal content in rock and ore samples.

ICP-OES analysis allows Acme to offer its customers a combination of analytical procedures. Rock samples, for example, are first analyzed with the CIROS VISION and then with an ICP mass spectrometer to achieve the lowest possible detection limits and to cover the entire spectrum of elements.
