prepFAST M5 - Syringe Sample Loading and Rinse w/ Automated Inline Sample Preparation

The prepFAST M5 for ICP and ICPMS is a fully integrated autodilution and autocalibration system that improves precision and detection limits while significantly increasing sample throughput. The M5 syringe module pulls small or viscous samples, aids in multiple reanalysis, automates inline sample preparation and allows for a full rinse of the sample lines including the probe.

    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.


    • 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

    Enclosure Only With ULPA Filter Description
    SC-1207-DX SC-1207-DX-1000 Enclosure for prepFAST M5 2DX Autosampler

    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.
