DiLLME Analyser


Dispersive Liquid Liquid Microextraction – DiLLME – is for laboratory chemists who are reliant upon traditional, manual, liquid-liquid extraction to prepare samples prior to analysis and are dissatisfied with the errors, inconvenience, costs and risks associated with a 150-year-old technology.

Our DiLLME robotic workstation automates Dispersive Liquid Liquid Microextraction and extraction and can be supplied as either a free-standing robot, or as part of a full analytical system, built on Agilent GC-MS or LC-MS platforms.

Unlike earlier approaches to automated Liquid-Liquid extraction, Anatune’s DiLLME solution is fast, offers low detection limits and uses minimal solvent for wider environmental benefits. It has rapidly gained acceptance and is in routine use with many laboratories.

Anatune offers a free feasibility study to quickly check that your method is suitable for automation. We can also run your samples in our lab and show you the system in operation.

DiLLME has advantages over other approaches due to its simplicity and speed. Furthermore, as unlike headspace approaches the sample does not need to be heated, it has less potential for formation of compounds and potentially less volatile compounds can be analysed.
