Product News: Thermo Fisher Scientific launches a New Robotic Autosampler for Sample Preparation and Handling

25 Aug 2011

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has introduced the Thermo Scientific TriPlus RSH Autosampler featuring increased precision, flexibility and productivity in sampling solutions. Compatible with Thermo Scientific GC and GC/MS systems, the autosampler provides liquid handling cycles that enable automated functionality beyond traditional liquid, headspace and solid-phase microextraction (SPME) injections.

The Automatic Tool Change (ATC) capability enables seamless operation by automating the exchange of syringes for different tasks in a single, unattended sequence prior to sample injection. In this way, high-precision sample-handling capabilities eliminate the need for extensive manual intervention and downtime traditionally required to complete tasks, such as standard or stock sample dilutions, internal standard addition and derivatisation.

A sample vial capacity of 648 2-mL vials, combined with multiple 100-mL wash/waste bottles, allows the Thermo Scientific TriPlus RSH to achieve weekend-long unattended operations.

Vial Bottom Sensing is a further innovation that expands the application range of the TriPlus RSH autosampler. Detecting the vial bottom, the autosampler withdraws microliters or fractions of microliters from a sample as low as five microliters in a vial. Trace analysis, radioactive samples or samples requiring expensive internal standards are just a few examples of the applications that benefit from this autosampler.
