Need to improve hardware.
Application Area: VOC in water and soil
"Purchased 2 units. 1 unit had dosing issues and was replaced with a new unit. The automated sample prep is good for high sample throughput."

Like the system overall and some improvement will make it better
Application Area:Volatile organic compound analysis
"The Atomx XYZ is overall a big improvement compared to our past similar equipment. Service was good for replacing a failed surrogate standard solution pump. The reproducibility of the results could be better. The software, especially the schedule part, could be improved, such as adding more rows on the existing schedule table."

Good product that gives accurate results
Application Area:Analyze compounds in waste water such as Benzen, Toluene and Trichloroethyl
"The equipment is very effective in analysing the compounds present in waste water such as Benzene, Toluene and Trichloroethyl. The repeatability and reproducibility is good and acceptable. The equipment is very easy to use and you can count on after sales care which I highly recommend. The equipment is not a waste of money."

"Easy of use and very good reproducibility. No matters the kind of sample. Installation was very simple and without complications. Local support was excellent."
Teledyne Tekmar's Atomx Automated Sample Prep System combines an Autosampler and Purge and Trap into a single instrument for the analysis of VOCs in soils and waters. This is the first of its kind and only system that employs a unique methanol extraction automation feature for high level soils in accordance with USEPA Method 5035.
Extractasol clean-up step (patent pending) in the Atomx reduces carryover or cross contamination normally associated with high-level water or soil analysis. Three new independent injection systems for internal standards, surrogates, and matrix spikes provide the ability to select variable volumes without generating waste.
The Atomx features Tekmar’s proven carousel drive capable of holding 80-vials for optimal throughput therefore reducing downtime. While priced competitively, this system offers unique features that cannot be found on other sample prep systems on the market today.
