SC-Micro Autosampler

The SC-µDX autosampler, although designed for micro volume samples (25-1000 µL) maintains the flexibility of all SC-DX autosamplers and is capable of sampling up to 125 mL bottles. The durable long-life carriage and multiple probe options ensure accuracy when sampling micro volume vials or titer plates. Link this to main page of SC micro main page.

Benefits:

  • Smallest foot print and capacity of any autosampler
  • Reset probe
  • Dual flowing rinse stations
  • Micro vials to 125 mL bottles simultaneously configured

Autosampler Enclosures

ICP and ICPMS sample integrity is maintained with the ESI SC-DX autosampler enclosures. The enclosures can be configured either as a dust cover or ULPA-filtered minienvironment.

Benefits:

  • Protects samples from airborne contamination
  • Exhaust acid fumes to protect the laboratory environment
  • Clear acrylic construction for easy sample viewing
  • Covers only the sample area—the electronics are kept outside the enclosure
  • Large hinged door provides easy access to sample racks at any time
  • Exhaust port (50 mm, included) connects to laboratory ventilation system
  • The ULPA (Ultra-Low Particle Arrester) filter upgrade is 99.999% efficient down to 0.12 microns

ULPA - Ultra-Low Particulate Arrester Air Filter and Mounting Plate

The ULPA (Ultra-Low Particle Arrester) filter creates a clean, positive pressure environment for samples and standards and prevents airborne contamination. The ULPA filter removes 99.999% of 0.12 micron particles.

The ULPA filter mounting plate fits the SC-2 DX, SC-4 DX, SC-µDX and microFAST MC on either the right or left side of the enclosure.

microFAST MC

The microFAST MC combines the capabilities of the SC-µDX autosampler with single or dual loop FAST capabilities and syringe based sample loading/injection. The system accurately loads a loop and then smoothly injects the solution into a μFlow concentric nebulizer at defined rates from 5-1000 μL/min. The valve on the flow injection system selects from two discrete, parallel flow paths. This allows rapid switching between solutions with minimal dead volume between the valve and the nebulizer.

Benefits:

  • Total sample consumption
  • Eliminate waste
  • Micro volume samples (5-1000 μL)
  • Micro flow rates (5-1000 μL/min)
  • Inject complete sample
  • Dual loop system
  • High sample throughput
