First All-in-One, Fully Automated Sample Preparation System Revolutionizes Chromatography Workflows
Thermo Scientific EXTREVA ASE Accelerated Solvent Extractor enables true walk-away, sample-to-vial sample preparation allowing laboratories to increase throughput and staff efficiency
The new Thermo Scientific EXTREVA ASE Accelerated Solvent Extractor is the first system to automatically extract and concentrate analytes of interest from solid and semi-solid samples, such as persistent organic pollutants (POPs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) or pesticides, in a single instrument, eliminating manual sample transfer for a walk-away sample-to-vial workflow.
The system is also the first to perform four sample extractions and concentrations in parallel, significantly improving sample throughput and laboratory productivity. With manual intervention significantly reduced by a factor of three, in some cases, results can be more accurate and reliable—allowing users more time to focus on value-added tasks. Analytical labs extracting from solid or semi-solid matrices can pair the sample prep instrument with gas chromatography (GC), GC-mass spectrometry (MS) or liquid chromatography (LC)-MS systems.
Matthew MacLennan, director, LC/MS/MS DevOps, Pacific Rim Laboratories, said, “We are looking to innovate our processes with technologies that will enable us to extract the most difficult and complex matrices with ease. EXTREVA ASE does just that for our POPs extractions.”
