  • Application Area: Analytical

"This discrete analyzer can significantly reduce analytical waste instead of utilizing wet methods with large sample volumes. The automated instrument is easily set up using the software, and multiple analyses can be performed on the same sample. We found it easy to justify the cost, as the analyst's working time is greatly reduced, allowing the analyst to perform other work while the samples are being analyzed. Seal will help convert new methods to the AQ2. "

Is a flexible analyzer that uses the principle of Discrete Analysis where each test occurs in a separate or discrete reaction vessel.

The AQ2+ employs a robust robotic sampling arm working in conjunction with a stepper motor-driven syringe. The syringe is used for aspirating, dispensing and mixing accurate and precise quantities of sample and reagent into miniaturized test tubes, called reaction wells.

The sample and reagents are incubated in the reaction wells for a pre-programmed time. A single aliquot is then transferred into the stop/flow Optical Quality Glass Cuvette. The absorbance of the reaction is read in our stationary optical bench to assure the best possible signal to noise ratio.

SEAL AQ2 - Automated Discrete Analyzer Features:

  • Glass Cuvette
