Automated Sample Preparation, Maestro, MPS, MultiPurpose Sampler, Ray Perkins,


One of the best things about the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler (MPS) is that it offers such a large range of accessories. This means that when we are looking to automate sample preparation, there are very few applications that we can’t provide a solution for, because, in the main we have every tool we need to hand.

One of the options we have is to include the use of an analytical balance as part of the sample preparation sequence.

The various tools we have can be combined in an unlimited number of different ways and using the Maestro software, you are able to build control sequences and integrate the sample preparation with the operation of the GC or GC-MS.

Alternatively, you may wish to automate an off-line process. We can do that too.

Here is a great article that shows how a customer in Germany puts the automated weighing capability of the GERSTEL MPS to good use.

You can also see a short video here of the GERSTEL MPS workstation with balance option.

If this rings any bells with you, and you would like to know more, please give us a call on +44 (0) 1223 279210 or email enquiries@anatune.co.uk.
