The Astrum is designed to test high purity materials with the best detection limits. The primary application of the Astrum GD-MS is the characterisation of high purity conductive and non-conductive materials. It is capable of quantifying virtually all elements from lithium to uranium and from matrix to sub part-per-billion. The instrument combines a glow discharge ion source with a high resolution mass spectrometer and is considered to be a major step forward in GD-MS, from the cryo-cooled tantalum source and rapid sample changeover system through to the bespoke control software.

No compromise design

The Astrum has been designed to be the gold standard in solids analysis. Continuously variable resolution offers improved flexibility whilst the data handling system is purpose built for high throughput measurements. The durable construction of the instrument and proven source design give maximum uptime with minimal intervention. The Astrum is the true workhorse in solids analysis.
