Mehlich-3-ICP is a method for determining bioavailable concentrations of 11 extractable micronutrient elements in soil samples. Mehlich-3-ICP is invaluable for determining the amount of fertilizer to apply to farm fields. Because soil analyses must be completed in a narrow time window, ultra-high sample throughtput with high-reliability is required.
SampleSense Soil uses an inert injection valve with built-in optical sensors that automatically detect the liquid sample, inject the valve and trigger the ICP read in a tightly-timed analytical sequence. This ultra high-throughput system eliminates wasted time from the ICP method and can double or even triple sample throughput while recording missing or empty tubes.

The SampleSense Soil rinse-out immediately reduces all elements to concentrations well below the bottom standard when using the six second Mehlich-3-ICP procedure. Additional seconds can be added to the rinse-out to meet lab requirements.
The system can deliver rinse-out factors of 1,000x, 10,000x or more depending on how clear the spray chamber needs to be before the next sample is introduced.
