Applied Spectra, Inc. was founded in 2004 by Dr. Richard E. Russo. As a pioneer in the study and development of laser ablation and LIBS at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for almost 30 years, Dr. Russo realized that laser ablation (LA-ICP-MS and LIBS) could provide tremendous value for customers engaged in chemical analysis. Applied Spectra, Inc. (ASI) is the leading supplier of analytical instruments using laser ablation (LA) technology. We’ve assembled a world-class scientific team whose members are truly the experts in LA-based chemical analysis. Our customers don’t just buy an instrument, they buy the very best scientific and technical support team.

Applied Spectra, Inc. provides laser ablation (LA) and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) instruments that can meet and exceed your elemental and isotopic analysis needs. Our instruments can tackle the most challenging research project, be used for routine analysis, and come with a state-of-the-art software package and support from our world-class team of scientists.

Applied Spectra, Inc. is a leading supplier of analytical instruments. We stand at the forefront of laser ablation (LA) based elemental analysis techniques, with our world-class scientific and engineering teams. We simplify the process of elemental chemical analysis, while delivering rapid, high-precision results that are environmentally friendly.

Laser sampling offers a compelling value proposition over traditional chemical analysis methods, which are slower and frequently involve destroying the sample and generating toxic chemical waste by-products.

ASI’s products simplify elemental chemical analysis, while delivering rapid, high-precision results that are environmentally friendly. Our technology offers compelling advantages over traditional chemical analysis methods, which are slower and frequently involve destroying the sample while generating toxic chemical waste by-products.
