Plasma 1700

Image of the Nu Instruments Plasma 1700 MC-ICP-MS


  • Large geometry MC-ICP-MS with the highest resolution
  • Independently-adjustable collector slits for True high resolution
  • Superior abundance sensitivity

The Nu Plasma 1700 is a unique High Resolution Multi Collector ICP-MS from Nu Instruments providing the ultimate in high resolution isotope ratio measurements.

The instrument has been designed with a high dispersion and large geometry to provide a no compromise high resolution capability whilst still maintaining flat top peaks for high precision measurements with minimal loss in sensitivity.

    Peak flat at 5,000 resolution

    The Nu Plasma 1700’s large geometry uniquely allows resolutions of >5,000 while maintaining peak flat. Each of its sixteen Faraday detectors and five full size discrete dynode multipliers have independent variable high-resolution slits allowing different resolutions on individual detectors. When the highest performing MC-ICP-MS is required, the Nu Plasma 1700 is the no compromise solution.
