LSX‑213 G2+ Laser Ablation SystemThe LSX-213 G2+ system features the latest in optical design technology to target areas of interest. Built on the rugged and field proven LSX platform, the Light Engine inside the LSX-213 is a hermetically sealed, MIL-SPEC laser head affording unmatched stability and user serviceability. Coupled with precision mounted optical components on a vibration isolated optical bench, the system can be used on multiple analytical instruments at multiple locations with confidence and ease. Simple, elegant component layout leads to improved stability and ease of maintenance. The laser ablation platform incorporates an open architecture sample area that enables flexibility for a wide range of specialized and custom sample cells.

Spot sizes ranging from 4 μm to 200 μm are generated using aperture imaging technology, and are easily set using software control. From power, spot size and scan speed to control over timing and communication with your spectrometer, Teledyne CETAC Technologies is focused on making your job easier; simply Target, Ablate, and Analyze.

The LSX-213 incorporates the latest in high resolution hardware and optical design technology, providing the user with excellent optical resolution and​ a wide field of view. Images are of startling quality, and high intensity lighting arrays above and below the sample produce extremely clear images even at high zoom.
