The illustration below shows how this rapid washing is achieved. After washing the inside, the system will wash the needle externally and be ready to aspirate the next sample.
Example Chronos method for infusion sample:
|Flow rate range||5—100μL/min|
|Sample formats||Sealed and unsealed vials (1mL, 2mL, 10mL); sealed and unsealed plates (96 and 384-well)|
|Optional features||Sample cooling drawers (4-40°C), inert flow path, 2nd valve for chromatography autosampling|
|Sample capacity||Expandable capacity, from three plate tray holder, to 6 or 12 plate drawer stack(s). Capacity depends on vial/tray formats and drawer configuration, maximum 4 stacks|
|Signal stability||Signal stability on a single sample has been demonstrated for 20 minutes. Long term stability confirmed in successful analysis of 400 samples over a 36-hour period (5 minute injection per sample).|
