Sample preparation equipment

Due to the fast growth and development of microprocessors, analytical instrumentations in spectroscopy, chromatography, microscopy and other have been subjected to significant developments. Regardless of these advances, sample preparation is an indispensable step prior to instrumental analysis. Main reasons for this are low sensitivity of instruments, matrix interferences as well as incompatibility of the sample with the analytical device. Most of the time spent, as well as most of the errors in chemical analysis are occuring precisely during the sample preparation step. As a result, any improvement in this essential process has a significant effect on shortening the analysis time, increasing its precision and accuracy, as well as lowering the cost. Converting the sample to a form compatible with the analytical instrument could be as simple as filtration or dilution, or alternatively include multistep procedures. Samples need to be representative, homogeneous and suitable for the analysis chosen. Hence, sample preparation is a critical step in any analytical procedure. In our portfolio, you can find various sample preparation techniques - from the physical preparation of samples using mills, sievers and presses, to digestion, all the way to solid phase extraction and automated extraction devices.
