liquid sampler / automatic
The ARCHIE is a robotic liquids auto sampler that increases the productivity, accuracy, saves time and reduces errors. The ARCHIE uses a 100 μL syringe to inject the sample with utmost precision into a vertical liquids or horizontal boat introduction module at controlled speed. A perfect match with the XPLORER analyzer!
The ARCHIE automatically picks up sample from an assigned vial position and delivers it to the introduction module. In between samples, it washes the syringe and needle, utilizing a special dual wash & drain station tray, mounted besides the sample tray. Next, it picks up a sample from the assigned sample vial to pre-rinse the syringe with the sample at hand. Calibrating the auto sampler is easy, place it at the assigned position and confirm. Standards are created automatically through autodilution.
Before you observe which steps it performs, it already starts to inject the sample into the introduction module. Just a few minutes later, the first result appears on your screen and the sampler picks up the replicate or next sample. The sampler is set up to work with standard 2 mL vials on one or two vial trays of 105 positions each, this makes it possible to run up to 210 samples. Both vial trays can be temperature controlled; heating as well as cooling, for each separate tray.
