OMNIS – New adapter technology for safer and more reliable analyses

OMNIS Liquid Adapter for safe reagent exchange
Wet chemical analysis by definition includes handling liquid reagents. Exposure to chemicals during reagent exchange is a potential hazard to the health of laboratory workers, especially when removing aspiration tubes from bottles with toxic content.  Metrohm is pleased to present the OMNIS Liquid Adapter, a new technology that puts an end to this risk altogether by handling reagents in a closed system at any stage during reagent exchange.

Fully protected exchange of reagents in a matter of seconds

The patented OMNIS Liquid Adapter is simply snapped onto a corresponding bottle cap that is part of the reagent bottle. As soon as this liquid adapter is connected to the bottle cap, reagent from the bottle can be aspirated by the system and the analysis can be started.

Full traceability of the analysis to the reagent

Artificial intelligence further enhances this new system enabling unambiguous identification and monitoring of the reagent at all times. To this end, the bottle cap contains an RFID chip with complete information about the content of the bottle. Upon connection to the Liquid Adapter, OMNIS identifies the reagent and checks it against the specifications of the method to be performed. This check prevents user errors and provides full traceability of the titration.
