Automated QuEChERS platform

The AutoMate-Q40 is a revolutionary system specifically designed and optimized to automate the QuEChERS sample preparation workflow. The system is configured "out of the box" to conduct two of the most popular QuEChERS sample preparation methods:

  • AOAC 2007.01 (Pesticide Residues in Food by Acetonitrile Extraction and Partitioning with Magnesium Sulfate)
  • EN 15662.2008 (Foods of Plant Origin—Determination of Pesticide Residues Using GC-MS and/or LC-MS/MS Following Acetonitrile Extraction/Partitioning and Clean-up by Dispersive SPE—QuEChERS Method)

The AutoMate-Q40 incorporates a unique, innovative technology called VialVision that is able to reliably identify liquid levels, differentiate between multiple aqueous layers within a vial and then validate their associated volumes.
