Simple steps for clearing a blocked ICP-OES nebuliser


The easy way to solve an everyday problem

This technical overview explains the simple steps of clearing a blocked ICP-OES nebuliser. A blocked nebulizer can restrict aerosol formation, decreasing sensitivity and degrading accuracy and precision. Reduced nebuliser flow is a particular concern, because it contributes to poor performance.

To ensure good performance from the nebuliser, regular rinsing between samples and at the end of the run, combined with regular cleaning of the nebuliser is also important. Follow the steps outlined in this technical overview to routinely clean your nebulizer, and to remove blockages if or when they occur.
