Product Announcement from Teledyne Instruments
The AQUATek 100 is an example of Teledyne Tekmar's continuing focus on new innovation as well as producing instruments that provide customers with solutions for productivity and margin enhancement.
The AQUATek 100 is a purge and trap autosampler that automates the sample preparation steps for the analysis of liquid samples utilizing a fixed volume sample loop filled using a pressurization gas. Two independent volume programmable internal standards are then added to the sample and the entire aliquot is transferred to the Purge and Trap for compound concentration and subsequent separation and detection using a GC/GC-MS quantification system.
The AQUATek 100 brings to market the latest engineering enhancements that have been employed in Tekmar's newer sample preparation lines. In addition, newer materials in the field of inertness and advanced intelligent software controls have been incorporated. These features combined with greater vial capacity and increased sample handling speed will offer our customers greater flexibility and increased throughput to help their production needs all while maintaining a low cost of ownership.
While this autosampler may be considered a replacement for the current waters-only autosampler, several new productivity enhancing features have been added. The AQUATek offers 30% more sample capacity than the previous model. Auto blanking allows customers to use more vial positions for actual samples rather than required quality control, since blanks can be generated from the built in water reservoir. The standard vial cooling system allows samples to be chilled to 10 degrees Celsius prior to analysis should the customer require this protocol for method compliance. These features are standard on the AQUATek 100 and offer customers greater capabilities. The AQUATek 100 is an example of Teledyne Tekmar's continuing focus on new innovation as well as producing instruments that provide customers with solutions for productivity and margin enhancement.
