Helix MC Plus

Static Vacuum Noble Gas Mass Spectrometer

Measure any five isotopes of neon, argon, krypton or xenon simultaneously at new levels of resolution with the Thermo Scientific™ Helix MC Plus™ multicollector noble gas mass spectrometer, the ultimate noble gas solution. Its high-resolution magnetic sector analyzer with 35 cm, 120 degree extended geometry ion optics make it the most advanced static vacuum mass spectrometer (SVMS) for the isotopic analysis of small samples of the noble gases.

Advanced Noble Gas Solution

  • Resolve many hydrocarbon interferences with the standard resolution detector (>750 @ 10% peak valley), or chose the optional high-resolution detector for even greater clarity (>1500 @ 10% peak valley)
  • Reduce analysis times and increase productivity through the simultaneous measurement of up to five isotopes; no peak jumping required
  • Gain ultra-high-resolution from the large-radius ion optics geometry combined with innovative ion optical elements
  • Improve accuracy with incredible levels of sensitivity, enabled by a new X- & Z-focused Nier-type bright source
  • Easily measure peak jumps when needed (e.g. helium isotopes)
  • Enable the measurement of a wide and dynamic range of sample concentrations via the highly advanced, combined Faraday multiplier (CFM) detector Conduct the majority of analyses on long-life Faraday detectors thanks to amplifier innovations
