Automated Liner EXchange (ALEX)

Automatic liner change

Do you perform routine analysis of with high levels of involatile compounds, particulates and other solid matrix material, e.g. QuEChERS? Matrix residue from samples can contaminate a GC inlet liner after a few runs, completely ruining the GC performance.


Do you change injection technique in the middle of a run sequence?

Under such conditions, the analyst is forced to perform liner replacement, an operation which normally requires manual intervention. Running large series of samples will represent a serious challenge.

The GERSTEL Automated Liner EXchance (ALEX) automates liner replacement in the GERSTEL Cooled Injection System CIS.

The ALEX system enables fully automated GC analysis of samples with a high matrix load as well as “dirty” extracts, which can be directly injected into the CIS using the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler MPS. Specially designed trays can hold 40 CIS 4 liners in individually sealed, contamination-free storage compartments.
