Inline Dilution & Autocalibration Systems

prepFAST Model

The prepFAST inline dilution system fully automates laboratory dilutions and eliminates many manual operator actions during an ICP/ICPMS analysis. Recommended model for labs requiring the highest sample throughput.

Fully Automated Sample Preparation System with Inline Dilution

The prepFAST systems are advanced inline dilution systems designed for ICP/ICPMS. They combine the DX autosampler benefits and the FAST system’s rapid sample throughput with a syringe module to perform precise, accurate inline dilutions of standards and samples.

Samples are vacuum-loaded into a sample loop and automatically mixed with diluent and internal standard using a patented mixing valve. The diluted and mixed sample is introduced to the ICP/ICPMS using FAST technology while the dilution valve is cleaned and prepared for the next sample.

Time Savings

Operator time for sample introduction method development is eliminated. Just run samples.

Sample Savings

Sample Savings

The sample is injected at precisely the right time. Every time. Even for small samples.

Error Notification

Error Notification

Incomplete sample loading or bubbles in the sample are detected and logged.
