Choose between liquid injection, headspace injection, and solid-phase microextraction (SPME) injection. The sample injection method can be selected to suit the sample form and the components targeted for analysis.
Automatic Switching of Sample Injection Methods
The AOC-6000 Plus automatically exchanges the syringe tools installed in the park station for each sample injection method (automatic tool exchange function).
Compared to previous SPME methods, the next-generation SPME Arrow offers higher sensitivity, superior durability, and high-speed extraction*.
* Due to its large external diameter, the SPME Arrow cannot be used with an ordinary GC injection port. Use only GC injection ports that have a wide diameter hole and are designed for the SPME Arrow.
- Unlike conventional SPME, the SPME Arrow can hold a larger volume of adsorbent, and has a thicker, sturdier design. It also provides higher sensitivity and durability.
- By employing the dedicated Heatex Stirrer, which is highly efficient at stirring, the SPME Arrow enables acceleration of the pretreatment process.
In the analysis of moldy odor substances in water, the SPME Arrow achieved a five-time increase in sensitivity compared with previous SPME. Moreover, the time required for the extraction to reach equilibrium was reduced to five minutes, which is 1/3 that of previous SPME.
Increased data reliability with syringe and fiber usage history
The AOC-6000 Plus includes a feature for managing the use of syringes and fibers. It reads the Smart Chips built into the specially-designed Smart Syringe, Smart SPME Fiber, and Smart SPME Arrow and displays information for the device, such as temperature resistance, usage history, usage dates and stroke count*. The ability to automate complicated consumables management and monitor the conditions of syringes and fibers leads to more reliable data.
A broad lineup of Smart Syringes, Smart SPME Fibers and Smart SPME Arrows compatible with the AOC-6000 Plus are available to cover any analysis.
Choose the best consumables for your application with a lineup of Smart SPME Fibres and Smart SPME Arrows covering all types of mobile phase. Plungers are color-coded according to the mobile phase type so that consumables can be distinguished easily.
* The AOC-6000 Plus is only compatible with the Smart Syringe, Smart SPME Fiber and Smart SPME Arrow. Syringes and fibers without a Smart Chip cannot be used.
