Both the M50 and S155 sample cells are supplied with a range of high-quality sample holders. Beautifully designed and precision machined, these sample holders offer a range of flexible mounting options to suit all samples. Special holder designs are also available, and Laurin Technic can make custom holders to suit your exact needs.
All sample holders offer both spring mounting and grub screws, combining ease of use with high strength of fixing. The precision machining of the holder lip ensures that all samples are held flat and uniform at the appropriate height. While LA-ICP-MS can be undertaken on rough, or unpolished specimens, the best results are always achieved when samples are well mounted.
- The S155 round section holder can mount twenty 25mm (1″) rounds
- The S155 thin section holder can mount nine 25 x 50mm (1 x 2″) thin sections
The universal holder provides the ultimate flexibility for mounting irregular samples. The combination of fittings allows especially fiddly and difficult-to-mount samples to be presented flat and perpendicular to the laser.
