New Purge & Trap Sampler from Teledyne Tekmar for Low Level Volatile Organics

May 26 2011

Teledyne Tekmar’s Atomx contains the latest advances in Purge & Trap sampling for the analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in environmental samples and is now available in the UK through Anatune.

Designed to meet requirements for low-level VOC analysis in environmental laboratories. The Atomx 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 the only system that employs a unique methanol extraction automation feature for the analysis of highly contaminated soils in accordance with USEPA Method 5035.

The Extractasol clean-up step (patent pending) in the Atomx reduces the carryover and cross contamination often encountered in 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 wasting valuable standards.

The Atomx features Tekmar’s proven carousel drive capable of holding 80-vials for optimal throughput therefore reducing downtime. This system offers unique features that cannot be found on other sample prep systems on the market today.

Bob Green, Anatune’s Technical Director comments:
“We recently came up with an opportunity to evaluate and demo the ATOMX for a new low level requirement. The ATOMX demo unit arrived, we had the system out of the box and running samples within a couple of hours, it was so easy to set-up and get working.

We were able to meet the application requirements and easily achieve the required calibration in the desired range. This was done without any special optimization, just running the suggested method.

We have successfully carried out other demonstrations and our experience with the ATOX has been a good one.”

• Single platform system autosampler with built-in purge and trap for all water and soil matrices including drinking water and wastewater
• Capable of sampling low level and high level soil samples
• Only system to automate labour intensive Methanol Extractions
• Utilizes proven 80-position carousel design for optimal throughput
• Utilizes a digital Mass Flow Controller (MFC) for independent mode flow control (patent pending)
• Chiller options available for EPA requirements
• Ability to vary sample volume in 1mL aliquots from 1-25mL
• Reduce carryover with Extractasol - dedicated methanol port for rinsing needle, sample lines, and glassware
• Water reservoir included with standard instrument package
• Three - 15mL UV-protected standard spiking vessels prevent possible compound break-down. Capable of varying volume delivery in 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20µL aliquots and zero waste
• Shortest soil pathway on the market
• Automated system leak check diagnostics
• CFR compliance tools available
• Small footprint that saves valuable bench space

Anatune has a ATOMX purge and trap system running in its Cambridge laboratory and is able to offer potential customers the opportunity to run samples and see the instrument working.
