Liquid handling applied to automated sample preparation in liquid chromatography

In routine chemical analysis, the predominant challenge involves a higher sample throughput, improved reproducibility, liquid handling flexibility and reduced personnel costs. In response to these requirements, the 872 Extension Module Liquid Handling in combination with the MagIC NetTM software and the well-proven Dosino technology expands the possibilities of inline sample preparation and opens up new fields of application. Among others, the module can be used, together with an optional mixing vessel, for pH adjustments, pre-column derivatizations, or the mixing of solutions.As a representative of an inline sample preparation technique, this poster describes the performance of precise dilutions. By using only one single stable standard solution, multi-point calibration curves can be automatically recorded by diluting a concentrated standard in an external vessel.
