Laser Ablation Mass Spectrometry Data Processing

Designed by scientists for scientists. Availabe for Teledyne Photon Machines laser systems.

An advanced solution to the data reduction problem

HDIP, a sophisticated laser ablation mass spectrometry data reduction software package was created by Teledyne Photon Machines to support data scientists. HDIP enables scientists to quickly and efficiently produce high quality data output for a plethora of experiment types, such as elemental analysis of the bulk composition of various sample types and elemental micron- and nano-scale imaging.

Create and investigate amazing images

With the advanced image analysis tools of HDIP, you can interrogate the elemental distribution in images with hundereds of mass channels and gain deep insights in relational patterns for sub-domains in your multi-phase image.

What HDIP offers

HDIP has a plethora of data processing tools to inspect and process your elemental images and bulk measurements. HDIP is designed with the help of academic partners and the latest data analysis approaches are being incorporated into the software.

Gigabyte-sized data files containing multi-mega-pixel images can be processed, imported and displayed in the virtual workspace, thanks to a fast C++ backbone. HDIP is also well-suited for routine analysis methods involving 1000's of samples, as it is capable of unsupervised data analysis, and strives to automate data processing and analysis.

Worldwide, fast support by experts is available to help users and guide them through the software step-by-step. A detailed manual and video tutorials are available. HDIP supports a plethora of ICP-MS systems. If your ICP-MS data format is not yet available within, we are commited to enable you to work with your data.

HDIP can produce high-quality graphics which will look great in your scientific publication. From stunning 3D rendering to multi-level graphs with error bars.

Elemental compositions across the periodic table and concentration levels

Whether you are interested in ultra-trace levels or major levels, HDIP offers a solution for a semi/fully quantitative characterization of any sample. HDIP provides multi-calibrant calibration curves, internal standardization, 100% oxide normalization, complete error propagation and limit of detection calculations.

Next-Generation Elemental Imaging Laser Ablation System​

Teledyne CETAC Technologies has released the Iridia, a flexible laser ablation system designed to speed up your experiments. This instrument is the ideal platform for imaging in geology, bio-imaging, solid-state applications, forensics, and general material research. The Cobalt sample cell offers single millisecond analytical performance, drastically improving sensitivity, throughput, resolution and image quality.
