The Iridia (Teledyne) is a 193 nm system which can ablate a range of different substrates, from soft-tissues and cells to mineralised materials such as teeth or fossils. The lasers spot size can be tuned from 1 to 50 microns allowing sub-cellular resolution and the flexibility to image large tissue sections in realistic timeframes. The laser can be fired at 1kHz allowing high-speed removal of material for fast elemental imaging when coupled with an ICP-(TOF)-MS.
Couple with: Vitesse ICP-TOF-MS, iCAPTQ ICP-MS.
