FLEX 2 Robotic Sampling Platform

The FLEX 2 is a multifunctional XYZ autosampler designed for sample injection and sample preparation for GC and GC/MS. The FLEX delivers results that labs can count on with remarkable precision and accuracy. The Prep Ahead function allows samples to be prepared in advance while the GC run is ongoing for improved throughput and system utilization.

Key Features

FLEX 2 for Sample Prep

The FLEX 2 can be used as a bench top sample prep station:
  • Derivatization can be performed on the fiber or reagents added to the sample prior to extraction.
  • Adding internal standard is quick and easy
  • Extraction and Dilution that’s accurate and repeatable

FLEX 2 for Liquid Injection

The FLEX can be configured for liquid injection analysis with any GC GC/MS:
  • The FLEX 2 delivers standard or large volume injection of up to 500 uL
  • The FLEX 2 performs liquid sample introduction with the ability to control injection speeds from ultra-fast to very slow for optimized, reproducible results
  • Cooled trays available

FLEX 2 for Headspace

The FLEX can be configured for static Headspace analysis with any GC GC/MS.

Headspace Injection Range:
  • 100μl to 2500μl with standard 2.5ml syringe
  • 100μl to 1000μl with optional 1.0ml syringe
  • 500μl to 5000μl with optional 5.0ml syringe
The FLEX offers both orbital (traditional) and oscillating (less wear) agitation:
  • 6 heated vial positions for 2, 10, or 20ml vials
  • Ambient to 200°C temperature range
  • Orbital shaking speeds from 120 to 750rpm
  • Oscillation shaking frequency 190Hz

FLEX 2 for Automated SPME

The FLEX can be configured for traditional SPME and or direct immersion analysis with any GC GC/MS.

Heated Needle/Fiber Conditioning Station:
  • 1 heated station for needle or fiber conditioning
  • Ambient to 350°C temperature range for fiber conditioning
  • Ambient to 150°C temperature range for needle conditioning
  • Sweep gas port
Single Magnet Mixing Station:
  • 1 heated station for sample heating
  • Ambient to 150°C
  • Mixing Speeds from 380 to 725 rpm
Multi-Fiber Exchange (MFX) Capability:
  • The FLEX offers an automated fiber exchange option. SPME analysis of a sample can be automatically performed using up to 6 fibers with different polarity. Labs of all types can assess a wide range of analytes automatically.
