Faster Turnaround and Increased Sensitivity from NSL Analytical

NSL Analytical Services (Cleveland, OH), a recognized leader in analytical and metallurgical testing, has acquired a PerkinElmer NexION inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) for the lab, utilizing the newest technology available. With this ICP-MS, NSL is able to analyze virtually any sample with fast and accurate trace element results.

The new ICP-MS is designed with three modes of operation (standard, collision cell and reaction cell technology) for greater flexibility and optimum performance.

Features and benefits include:

  • Increased sensitivity allows for lower detection limits
  • Increased resolution allows for less interference and higher accuracy
  • Uses the ESI FAST system auto sampler for clean and efficient sample analysis
  • A full scan of 68 elements for those samples that need it
  • NSL’s highly experienced ICP-MS chemists are available to interpret and discuss customer results

“NSL Analytical is dedicated to quality results and quick turnaround to meet tight deadlines for trace elemental analysis of our customers,” says the company’s President, Larry Somrack. “This new technology helps us do just that.”

NSL is an independent material testing lab for aerospace, ceramic, nuclear, refractory and metalworking industries. Its chemistry testing services include elemental analysis of sample materials with composition levels of parts per billion (ppb) to 99.99+% concentration levels. The company’s chemistry analysis services are used to provide customers with independent verification of materials, certification of raw materials, and support in failure analysis. NSL Analytical has capabilities to perform analysis of rare earths, metals, halogens, gaseous elements, precious metals, refractories and organic compounds with the latest analytical techniques and classic wet chemical analyses.
