VG Elemental has established itself as the innovator in elemental and isotopic mass spectrometry and the center of excellence within Thermo Optek for ICP-MS technology.
The company is committed to providing analysts with high performance instrumentation for research and development in the semiconductor, environmental, chemical, metallurgical, nuclear and earth science sectors.
Constantly developing its products and services in line with predicted customer demand, VG Elemental focuses its efforts on progressive research in the field of ICP-MS technology. As one of the first companies to produce ICP-MS instrumentation, our pedigree speaks for itself.
VG Elemental has a wealth of expertise in elemental and isotopic mass spectrometry, dedicated to fulfilling the needs of analytical chemists worldwide. Evidence of this is seen in our extensive upgrade program; an existing user with a decade old PQ1 ICP-MS can upgrade their instrument to the analytical performance of today's instruments. No other manufacturer of ICP-MS instrumentation can make such a claim!
In early 1996 the core inorganic mass spectrometry business of Fisons Instruments (VG Elemental) was transferred to Thermo Optek Corporation part of Thermo Instrument Systems, the largest subsiduary of Thermo Electron Corporation.
Since then an active development program
has continued to ensure that we remain at the top of our chosen fields in both elemental
and isotopic mass spectrometry. Resulting in the development of the VG Axiom,
a third generation high resolution inductively coupled
plasma mass spectrometer, with optional multicollector ion detection system at the Winter
Plasma Conference in Scotsdale, Arizona in Jaunuary 1998.
