Water Only Autosampler
The 8500A autosampler is a 110 position autosampler with dynamic headspace sampling function for EPA methods 524, 624 and 8260 (both water and soil), and built on our 3rd generation autosampler with a faster and smarter sample loading. A perfect match for the 8500C Purge & Trap concentrator with integrated software control.
110 Position Autosampler
The autosampler comes with a high capacity of 110 positions for 40 ml VOC vials in one sample rack. Sample code is supported in the software.
Internal Standard Addition
CDS 8500A autosampler adopts a unique EPC controlled manifold to precisely inject a user-select volume (1/2/5/10/20/25μL) of internal standard into the sample from 4 channels.
High Precision Syringe
The 8500A autosampler uses a 25 mL high precision syringe to drive the sample flow, and delivers a variable sample volume from 0.1 mL to 25 ml with a use-select sample dilution ratios from 1:1/1:2/1:5/1:10/1:20/1:50/1:100, which supports the automated sample calibration.
The 8500A is equipped with a soil cup for dynamic headspace sampling in compliance with EPA 8260 soil samples. The max temperature is 150°C for routine Dynamic Headspace applications.
The water sample and soil sample are using its dedicated sampling station and needle without worry of cross-contamination.
The magnetic stirrer drives the magnetic bar in the soil vial based on EPA 5030 and 5035 sampling requirement for soil samples.
PEEK Sample Pathway
The chemically inert sample pathway guarantees the success of your purge and trap testing even with challenging liquid samples.
Powerful PC Interface
The PC software has a friendly interface to configure each run with programmable rinses, programmable blanks, internal standard addition, and water addition to soil sample.
Soft Draw Gripper
The highly versatile vial gripper has a 4 soft draws to offer the maximum compatibility and reliability to transport glass vials from various manufacturers.
Precision Robotic Arm
The position accuracy of the 3rd generation autosampler is 1 mm (X, Y and Z) 3D placement accuracy due to a high precision drive mechanism. The 8500A is pre-calibrated in the factory for easy installation.
The 8500C autosampler has the capability to support methanol extraction to high concentration samples as well as offering methanol rinse to the liquid sample pathway.
Build-in EPA Method
The 8500 software controls both the 8500A autosampler and the 8500C concentrator. EPA method has been built in to jump start your sample runs.
