WHAT TYPES OF MASS SPECTROMETRY CAN I USE IOLITE FOR?

Iolite’s longest history is with laser ablation ICP-MS and we can say with confidence that it is the most advanced software available for laser ablation work. Iolite is setting new standards for laser imaging and has tried and tested data reduction schemes for trace elements, U-Pb geochronology, and numerous isotope-ratio protocols.

It may surprise some to learn that iolite is also great for other approaches – multiple labs use iolite routinely for solution-mode isotope ratio measurement, and a robust data reduction scheme for solution mode trace element analysis is in the pipeline. In addition, iolite excels in reducing TIMS data, and we are currently working on strategies for reducing data from other types of mass spectrometry such as OES and time-of-flight, noble gas mass spectrometry and LC-ICPMS.
