SimPrep Simple Automated Prep System
Benefits for the Laboratory
  • Eliminate inconsistent manual dilutions
  • Save labor and free up personnel
  • One dilution system for the whole lab​
  • ​Simple, spreadsheet-like software​​
​​​​​​​​​The SimPrep automated sample dilution system does more than just mixing and dispensing; it can automatically create:
  • Spikes
  • Calibration curves from predefined dilution factors
  • Serial dilutions
  • Internal standard additions
  • 1-to-1 and 1-to-many sample transfers (splitting)
  • Acidified samples

Advantages of the SimPrep

  • Wide range of syringes from 20 μL to 50 mL
  • A single system can serve multiple techniques such as ICP-MS, ICP, AA, Colorimeter, IC, FIA
  • An extra autosampler - easily switch between sample prep and sample analysis with a switching USB hub.

Typical Results

  • Homogenous dilutions u​p to 2000x
  • Carryover < 0.01%
  • Precision 100% at < 0.2%
  • Accuracy 100% ± 1%
  • Linearity r2 = > 0.999996 over wide ranges
