CETAC Oils 7600 Homogenizing Autosamplers

Oils 7600 Homogenizing Autosampler allows 2 sample matrices to be introduced to an ICP instrument from the same system. Boasting a dual port rinse station fed by 2 separate peristaltic pump, it can change between oils and coolants testing on demand.

A stirring paddle mounted next to the sample probe efficiently mixes each sample and, with sample probe, is cleaned at the rinse station.

Analyze 2 samples per minute with ASXPRESS PLUS rapid sample introduction for ASTM 5185 and ASTM 6130 testing

An improved drip cup allows sample drip capture and retention to eliminate cross contamination at faster XYZ movement

An improved drip cup captures and retain any sample droplets, eliminating cross contamination while probe and stirrer move over the sample tubes. It uses cam shaft to provide smoother movement and also has an internal lip to ensure liquid retention while moving at higher speeds

Used oil coolant samples can be analyzed from the same automation with a sliding rinse station.

For Oil testing, the probe and stirrer are rinsed in ports fed from a peristaltic pump with kerosene or white spirit.

For coolants testing, the rinse station slides over and engages a second peristaltic pump that delivers an approciate rinse agents such as water or nitric acid.

By changing the sample probe, stirring paddle and ICP glassware, the analyst can switch from oils testing to collants testing within 5 minutes.

CETAC MVX 7100 μL Workstation

The MVX-7100 µL Workstation offers highly consistent, syringe driven, low volume and configurable flow rate sample introduction for quadrupole based, high resolution and multi-collector ICP-MS instrumentation.  This technology opens the door to samples of limited volume and batch analysis of volatile sample types.

Introduce sample aliquots from less than 5 µL to greater than 1.5 mL

The MVX-7100 µL Workstation is compatible with any nebulizer type

  • The user controls the introduction flow rate between:
    • Total consumption nebulization (< 5 µL min-1)
    • “Standard” nebulization (> 1 mL min-1)
  • Expand your analyte suite and generate more data from less material for low sample volumes
  • Allow multiple repeat measurements from a low sample volume

Ensure sample integrity across an analytical batch

  • Ensure sample integrity across an analytical batch
    • Septum piercing of sealed sample vials
  • Control sample temperature between 4°C to 40°​C
    • Minimize sample evaporation of volatile organic matrices
    • Minimize losses of volatile analytes
    • Inhibit the crystallization of high freezing point solvents (such as DMSO) in analysis
  • Homogenize samples immediately prior to sample introduction

CETAC APS 7450V Volumetric Sample Prep Station

Reduce cost

CETAC SDXHPLD High Performance Liquid Dilution

The SDXHPLD system combines the ASX-560 autosampler with a high precision syringe pump for both aliquot and diluent, but goes an additional step using a novel vortex mixing accessory prior to sample introduction to ICP and ICP-MS.

Vortex mixing promotes homogenization of a sample to ensure accurate and precise analysis following dilution, whatever the sample matrix. The resulting fully homogenized dilution improves data quality over in-line combination.

Prescriptive Dilution (2x to 5000x)

  • Saves laboratory staff time and effort
  • Accurate and precise unknown sample dilution
  • Calibration standard dilution

Responsive and Intelligent Dilution

  • Automated re-analysis and sample introduction for:
    • Samples exceeding calibration range
    • Samples with supressed internal standard

Realtime Sample Homogenization Prior to Introduction

  • Supports sample homogeneity and data integrity for matrices that may settle

CETAC ASXPRESS®PLUS Rapid Sample Introduction System

When coupled to a compatible autosampler, the ASXPRESS PLUS Rapid Sample Introduction Accessory minimizes times for sample delivery, stabilization, and washout with ICP-AES or ICP-MS.  The result is increased sample throughput by up to 5 times or more.  In addition, the ASXPRESS PLUS reduces costs from argon, power, ICP-AES / ICP-MS components, and system maintenance.

Increase sample throughput

Reduce sample delivery, stabilization and washout times

Reduce sample waste

Lower argon consumption

Reduce sample matrix exposure on ICP-AES / ICP-MS hardware

Eliminate sample memory effects from peristaltic pump tubing

Available in white or grey to match your system
