The ICP Turns On!!!

After many years of the ICP (inductively coupled plasma) not working we were able to turn on the plasma this thursday. Someone from the ICP company came in and fixed it. One of the many problems with this instrument was that there were lots of water droplets in the spray camber and the nebulizer. This caused the plasma to flicker a little and then go out. In order to fix this Tory (the guy from the company) took some argon gas and blew the water droplets out.  After that we started training on the software, but ran into some bugs. For the most part the ICP is working.
