The TurboTrace®ABN SPE system is a Multi Cartridge, Multi fractionation system that can be used for any SPE
method requiring more than one cartridge or fraction.

 

The TurboTrace®ABN Parallel SPE system designed to streamline your laboratory’s workflow and increase productivity by automating the manual steps in your sample preparation process. The TurboTrace® ABN Parallel SPE system automates existing manual techniques. ABN Methods or EPA Methods 625 and 8270D calls for the extraction for analysis of semi-volatile analytes in various matrices.  Target analytes mentioned in the method cover a wide range of compound classes resulting in reporting lists that often approach 100 compounds. In aqueous samples, the combination of compound groups such as phenols, analines, PAHs, phthalates, explosives, pesticides, n-nitrosoamines, and others results in a tedious process of multiple LLE (liquid-liquid extractions) with multiple pH adjustments to extract all the analytes. Large elution volumes (>360 mL of methylene chloride) combined with highly volatile analytes, usually result in low recoveries of target compounds and poor analytical precision.

The TurboTrace® ABN Parallel SPE system is a closed system designed and built to deliver the lowest background delivering reproducible and consistent results.  It combines extraction, drying and concentration into one step -- providing a truly automated total sample prep solution for the laboratory.  After loading the sample using Vacuum or Positive Pressure onto the SPE cartridge, the drying step is accomplished using Nitrogen. This drying step replaces manual techniques. The analytes of interest are then automatically fractionated into Acid and Base fractions and eluted directly to the SuperVap® Concentrator where the concentration process automatically brings the extract to final volume and places it directly into an autosampler vial, ready for final analysis. Automating these processes into one step ensures the highest quality results in the shortest amount of time and eliminates both human error and the possibility of contamination.

The TurboTrace® ABN SPE system is the only SPE system that combines Dual Cartridge extraction and fractionation, drying and concentration into one step -- providing a truly automated total sample prep solution for the laboratory. Simply load samples onto the TurboTrace ABN SPE system to trigger the automated extraction process. After loading the sample onto the SPE cartridge, the drying step is accomplished using Nitrogen. This drying step replaces manual techniques. The analytes of interest are then eluted directly to the SuperVap Concentrator where the concentration process automatically brings the extract to final volume and places it directly into an autosampler vial, ready for final analysis. Automating these processes into one step ensures the highest quality results in the shortest amount of time and eliminates both human error and the possibility of contamination. The fullprocess is complete in just over 1 hour versus 16 to 18 hrs and cuts the solvent consumption by 70%.

The TurboTrace ABN SPE system uses positive pressure pumping for precise and accurate delivery of conditioning, washing and elution solvents. The TurboTrace ABN SPE system is specifically designed to isolate analytes of interest from a wide variety of liquid matrices such as urine, blood, water, milk, beverages. Sample sizes range from 2 mL to 8 L and use the same bottle the sample was collected in. Sample loading rates are programmable. A vacuum or positive pressure pump is used to load samples onto the SPE cartridges and columns at unprecedented speeds and it easily handles both clean and tough sample matrices. The TurboTrace ABN SPE system concentrates samples up to 250 mL directly to a GC vial. The Sample Processing Module is designed to use all standard formats of SPE cartridges and columns on the market today. For guaranteed results, especially when dealing with low limits of detection, we recommend FMS prepacked columns and cartridges. Sample Processing Modules can be easily swapped out to perform cleanup column chemistries allowing the lab to multipurpose the TurboTrace ABN SPE system to automate other sample prep processes.

The TurboTrace ABN SPE system is a Multi Cartridge, Multi fractionation system that can be used for any SPE method requiring more than one cartridge or fraction.
