Sample Dilution System Offers Automation and Ease of Use

Jan 14 2020 Read 223 Times

One of the oldest sample preparation techniques is dilution of samples, which historically was done manually. This can be both labour and time intensive as well as introducing errors from human interaction. Automation provides better reproducibility and increased accuracy while cutting down on sample preparation time.

With Metrohm instruments, this can be done using patented Metrohm Dosino technology either with an in-vial technique or using the improved liquid handling station that allows a dilution range of 1:2000 to be realised.

The intelligent MagIC Net software from Metrohm allows a nested time program to reduce the overall analysis time and maintenance can be reduced through the use of two Dosino’s for aspiration and transfer of sample.

A further development using MagIC Net software is logical inline dilution, where the sample is placed on the carousel and the analysis is started, the system automatically calculates the optimum dilution factor and the reported results are always within the calibration range.

Of course in a standardised laboratory environment then only one chromatography data system may be employed, in fact it is possible to do dilution techniques using Agilent OpenLab CDS directly without the need for additional interfaces or two software’s working in tandem.

Automation calibration can be done from a single stock standard commercially available and allows productivity to be enhanced.

Higher lab profitability: Metrohm IC instruments use fewer consumables and are less expensive overall to operate, so you can work toward that bottom line you want to see.

Proven reliability: Metrohm’s Swiss-made instruments are built to handle high sample throughput and can run 24/7.
