Velox - Model 360 - Automated sample Handling System
From Other Products
The Velox 360 is a simple & versatile interface for drug screening and quantitation. Eliminate unnecessary steps in your analytical workflows and get from sample to result faster with the Velox 360. The Velox 360 system is an automated sample handling and ionization source for mass spectrometry featuring the PaperSpray® technology. PaperSpray is a simple method combining paper chromatography substrates and electrospray ionization. When combined with mass spectrometry, it’s a highly sensitive, selective and versatile approach to screening and quantitating drugs in biological fluids. The analysis is simple and is performed by first depositing the sample directly onto a disposable PaperSpray cartridge, known as the Velox Sample Cartridge (VSC).
The sample is absorbed into the matrix, allowed to dry and inserted into the Velox 360 autosampler for introduction to the mass spectrometer. The autosampler performs all of the steps necessary to perform the analysis prior to mass spectrometry detection, including loading the cartridge, depositing the extraction solvent onto the cartridge, and positioning the cartridge in front of the mass spectrometer inlet. When solvent is deposited onto the cartridge, it migrates through the sample by capillary action, dissolving and eluting the analytes of interest. A high voltage is applied to the cartridge to produce an electrospray of the sample.
The Velox 360 system features:
- A plug-n-play design.
- Automated cartridge loading. (Capacity: 40 VSCs)
- Two solvent dispensing pumps.
- On-board user friendly display.
- Simple Velox Control GUI
