Til GC and GC/MS

The MPS is a multifunctional autosampler and – because of MAESTRO – sample preparation robot for GC and GC/MS.

The MPS provides modern analytical laboratories with high throughput, high performance and unparalleled flexibility.

A large number of modules and sample preparation technologies are available for the MPS.

The following techniques are easily automated using the MPS:

  • Solid Phase Extraction SPE
  • Disposable Pipette Extraction DPX
  • Dynamic HeadSpace DHS
  • Headspace HS
  • Solid Phase Micro Extraction SPME
  • Thermal desorption of solids or liquids in µ-vial inserts (ATEX)
  • Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction SBSE (GERSTEL Twister®)
  • Automated GC inlet Liner EXchange ALEX
  • Membrane Assisted Solvent Extraction MASE
  • Liquid sample preparation – Sample Prep by mouse-click:
  • Adding internal standard
  • Extraction or Dilution
  • Derivatization
  • Heated or cooled sample conditioning and agitation
  • Parallel evaporation and concentration (mVAP)
  • Reading and processing of barcodes
  • Centrifugation and weighing
  • MPS sample trays and sample stacks for Deepwell or Microtiter plates can be optionally heated or cooled in order to stabilize or condition samples.

MAESTRO software

The MPS is controlled from the GERSTEL MAESTRO Software – stand-alone or integrated with the Agilent Technologies ChemStation/MassHunter. One method and one sequence table controls the entire system.

Sample preparation is performed during GC analysis of the preceding sample ensuring highest possible throughput and system utilization. This also ensures just-in-time preparation of each sample, thereby minimizing the relative standard deviation of the results.

LC and LC/MS

The GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler MPS is a highly productive LC autosampler and sample preparation robot for up to 3456 samples. In combination with the MAESTRO Software, the MPS provides more performance and higher productivity in sample preparation than any other commercially available LC/MS or LC autosampler. The MPS is compatible with all standard LC Systems.

The MPS autosampler for LC and is easily adapted to new tasks and processes in the laboratory. Exchangeable syringe modules enable fast change of methods even between different analytical techniques, such as liquid sample handling and sample introduction.

A number of sample preparation techniques for LC are available:

  • Solid Phase Extraction SPE
  • Disposable Pipette Extraction DPX
  • Membrane Assisted Solvent Extraction MASE
  • Twister Back Extraction TBE
  • Liquid Handling
  • Standard addition
  • Derivatization
  • Dilution
  • Extraction or dilution
  • Heating, cooling and/or mixing
  • Reading of barcodes
  • Centrifugation and weighing

MPS sample trays and sample stacks for Deepwell or Microtiter plates can be optionally heated or cooled in order to stabilize or condition samples. Trays and stacks are available with Peltier cooling or cryostatic cooling covering a temperature range from 4 to 70 °C.

For mixing/extraction/derivatization the MPS agitator/orbital shaker is also available with Peltier Cooling. The Agitator can be operated at temperatures between 10 and 200°C

LC capacity

  • Two solvent wash stations: Minimal carry over
  • Active wash station rinses injection valve and syringe simultaneously, reducing both carry-over and cycle time. Sampling needle rinsed on both the inside and outside to minimize carry-over
  • The innovative Dynamic Load and Wash (DLW)technology helps eliminate carryover while providing fast wash cycles
  • Capable of sampling from any format:
  • 3456 samples in 36 Microwell plates
  • 1728 samples in 18 Deepwell plates
  • 972 x 2 mL Vials
  • 600 x 1 mL Vials
  • 96 x 10/20 mL Vials
  •  

In addition to its capabilities in sample preparation and sample introduction the MPS can be used as a fraction collector. Further LC or GC analysis of collected fractions can be performed in a fully automated manner. If different syringes are required for fraction collection and sample introduction, the MPS can be delivered in the dual head/dual rail version or by the new MPS RoboticPro, capable of performing all steps automatically without manual change of syringes.

Need space?: The compact version of the MPS is only 53cm wide, but is a fully featured LC autosampler for sample preparation and sample introduction – with a capacity of up to 648 x 2 ml vials.
