Autodilution & Autocalibration Systems

prepFAST MAX Model

The prepFAST MAX inline dual-stage dilution system fully automates extended range laboratory dilutions while adding syringe loading for samples of small volume or high viscosity. Recommended model for labs requiring extended range sample dilutions for ICP/ICPMS.

Fully Automated Sample Preparation with Inline Dilution

The prepFAST MAX model fully automates laboratory dilutions with both SampleSense vacuum loading and precision syringe loading of samples.

The syringe sample loading is recommended when sample volumes are limited (0.1-3 mL) or when samples such as organic solvents, viscous samplers, or biological samples are being analyzed. The prepFAST MAX provides dual-stage autodilutions ranging 1-40,000x with the autocorrecting DXCi autosampler.

SampleSense Advantages

Innovative Sample Loading

Innovative Sample Loading

SampleSense accounts for viscosity and automatically adjusts timing. One method for multiple sample types.

SampleSense prepFAST Valve Enclosure

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.
