Installation and operation of the prepFAST system is straightforward. The system consists of an SC-DX series autosampler, a mixing valve, a S400V Syringe pump and associated plumbing. The prepFAST software and hardware is integrated seamlessly with your ICP or ICPMS. Operation is intuitive and once setup for autodilution, transparent to the user. To dilute samples, simply enter the desired dilution for each standard or sample. Load the desired sample file into the ESI SC software. Then the prepFAST automatically reads the desired dilution for each sample or standard and preforms appropriate inline dilutions.
