High Efficiency MicroMist Nebulizer

High Efficiency MicroMist Nebulizer

All Glass Expansion concentric glass nebulizers feature our unique VitriCone capillary construction delivering you the best possible manufacturing precision.

Glass Expansion is the only manufacturer that takes thick walled constant-bore tubing and machines the outside to a uniform aerodynamic shape. This guarantees a uniform sample channel, assuring tolerance to high matrix samples and perfect reproducibility.

We have applied this technology along with over 30 years of nebulizer design expertise, to develop a version of our popular MicroMist nebulizer specifically for single cell applications.

Benefits Include:

  • Superb transport efficiency at low sample uptake rates (15 to 45 μL/min) to ensure individual intact cells are transported into the plasma for measurement
  • Constant diameter, large bore sample channel minimizes blockages from sample build-up commonly experienced with biological samples
  • Rigid, precision machined thick-walled glass sample capillary gives the best analytical precision by resisting harmonic vibrations from the high linear velocity of the surrounding argon gas flow
  • Inert, metal-free DC gas fittings with ratchet mechanism give reliable, reproducible leak-free Ar connections

Proper Nebulizer Maintenance

With proper nebulizer maintenance you can prolong the performance and lifetime of your Glass Expansion nebulizer.

Our Eluo nebulizer cleaning tool is designed to efficiently deliver a cleaning solution through the nebulizer capillary to dislodge particle build-up and thoroughly clean the nebulizer.

We suggest using the Eluo regularly to maintain nebulizer performance and prolong nebulizer life.

We have found that using a dilute concentration of Fluka RBS-25 (Fluka RBS-25 is manufactured by Sigma-Aldrich, and is available from most suppliers of laboratory chemicals) is the best cleaning solution. Stubborn clogs may require an overnight soak or additional cleaning with nitric acid.

Why Choose a Glass Expansion RF Coil?

RF Coil

Glass Expansion coils are produced from the highest quality and purity raw materials and plated using proprietary methods to obtain maximum RF transmission efficiency.

Advantages Include:

  • High purity and consistent plating promote extended coil life
  • Each coil is supplied on a plastic former ensuring correct dimensions are maintained and allowing easier installation. These formers can be then used periodically to check the coil dimensions, so it is a good idea to keep the former even after coil installation.
  • Each coil is supplied in a special protective container to ensure correct dimensions are maintained, and the coil arrives corrosion free.
  • Correct alignment of the coil with respect to the torch body reduces devitrification of the outer tube and ensures the plasma is concentric within the torch allowing the sample aerosol to travel correctly through the plasma.
