ESI System: microFAST SC
Single particle-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (sp-ICPMS) has become an intriguing technique for understanding the elemental nature of nanoparticles (NPs). These nanoparticles have an impact in the food industry, environmental implications, and may pose toxic threats to biological life forms. The ability to detect these nanoparticles has improved over recent years, however, automation and the ability to analyze large sets of samples without compromising sensitivity, robustness, and transport efficiency has yet to be addressed. The microFAST Single Cell system in combination with the single cell sample introduction kit addresses this need for both single cell and single particle analyses.
