Automated Sample Preparation in Laboratories
Feb 25 2014 Comments 0
At this year’s analytica LCTech GmbH (Germany) presents its latest solutions for automated sample preparation in hall A2, booth 400B. The diverse systems and devices facilitate work in laboratories significantly:
FREESTYLE Basic, acts as the core system and contains important functions, such as the xyz-robotics, injection pump, valves and a needle for sample transfer or for pipetting, diluting etc. There are multiple possibilities to extend the modular and flexible platform: SPE module for the automated processing of different SPE columns: 1 - 15 mL cartridges or LCTech glass columns; EVAporation modulefor swift and precise concentration of samples to a pre-selected volume of between 0.5 and 5.0 mL; FREESTYLE with ThermELUTE module GPC module (Gel Permeation Chromatography) for sample clean-up via size exclusion chromatography.
The newest FREESTYLE module for the Mykotoxin analysis enables the handling from raw extract to the ready chromatogram without any manual working steps. The unique technology breaks the antibody-toxin-bond with water and heat. Afterwards the water is quantitatively and directly eluted into the HPLC sample loop.The results are more sensitive – ppt instead of ppb – and the throughput increases to 500 samples per week.
The new LCTech system, DEXTech,developed for dioxin analysis (PCDD/F and PCB) is suitable for all kinds of food and feed samples as well as environmental samples. The handy stand-alone device is easy to install and to operate. DEXTechrequires less solvents and time compared to manual sample preparation and savesadditional time by utilising the cost-efficient ready-to-use columns.
