Selecting the right ICP requires consideration of analytical requirements, available technologies, manufacturer specific features and benefits, estimation of current and future sample loads (as well as the number of
elements determined), warranty and service offerings, and instrument cost vs return on investment (including the cost of analysis). While it can be difficult to navigate industry terminology, the answer to what ICP fits your needs, is not difficult to determine.
This guide is designed to objectively explain ICP technology, sort instrument design differences, explain various options in functionality, and provide a thorough list of useful guidance for navigating the ICP selection process.
Where noted, fill in requested information and if desired, request that a Teledyne Leeman Labs Sales Representative estimate operating costs and advise you on the best ICP we offer for your application. The information in this guide is based on the experiences of our own customers and is intended to simplify the selection process by foremost, identifying a lab’s analytical needs, and then matching those needs to available ICP technologies.
