Subject: Agilent Triple Quad ICPMS? - 8800 or new 8900
For any users of the Agilent Triple Quad, I am wondering what peoples experience has been with the Agilent Triple Quad - 8800 or new 8900 compared to the Agilent 7900?
Are there any other Triple Quad instruments or equivalent on the market as yet?
We are currently using an old Agilent 7500CX at present for plant / grain / food analysis. We are happy with the performance except for the non-analysis of S, which we would like to be able to analyse in the same run rather than on ICPOES or some other way.
We currently analyse the following elements: Al, As, B, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, Se, Ti & Zn.
Expanded areas of particular interest and other questions are:
1. S analysis.
* I have read that the 7900 can analyse S - is that so and how is it done?
2. Better P analysis.
3. As and Se at quite low levels and removal of potential interferences - oxides and doubly charged species.
4. Does the Triple Quad reduce or get around the oxide interferences on elements e.g. MoO and Cd etc.
