Automated SPE-DEX 5000 disk extraction system
As commercial and municipal labs are pressured to provide higher productivity with fewer personnel, automated systems can help provide support for sample preparation. The SPE-DEX 5000 automates extraction of semivolatile/nonvolatile compounds from drinking water, wastewater, seawater and other types of liquid samples using solid phase extraction (SPE) disks. The entire process is computer controlled and can process a sample unattended with checks to assure that a sample is not lost.
The SPE-DEX 5000 is a three-position automated disk extraction system that conditions the disk, loads the sample (20 mL to 2 L) and elutes the analytes all without intervention! A benchtop system with optional use in a hood, the SPE-DEX 5000 is a rugged system incorporating clean materials to allow extraction of low concentration compounds. The system offers a number of features that facilitate easy use of the system including the ability to run previously developed methods with just a few clicks. It also offers the flexibility to optimize many parameters for the best performance in recovery and precision of desired analytes.
The SPE-DEX 5000 is used with DryDisk® extract drying, the DryVap® evaporation system, and Atlantic® SPE disks for a complete workflow approach.
