Chronos controls PAL samplers in an efficient and intelligent way and enhances sample throughput considerably.

Most chromatographic or spectrometric investigation processes in the area of instrumental analysis are characterised by the use of autosamplers. The purpose of automation is to increase throughput without the need for additional personnel. Up to now, the samples have been worked through automatically in sequence. This means that with conventional machine control systems, waiting times frequently occur due to sample preparation during which the chromatographs are not used, offering considerable potential for throughput optimisation. And it is precisely this potential which is utilised by the new Chronos software. Chronos increases the active measuring time of the machines and therefore considerably raises the efficiency of the laboratory.
