Multi-tube thermal desorber for high-throughput automated analysis

TD100-xr™ is an automated thermal desorption system for the rapid and unattended processing of up to 100 × 3½-inch sorbent tubes in a single sequence. It’s the perfect thermal desorption unit for high-throughput analytical laboratories needing to process large numbers of tube-based samples automatically.

Benefits of TD100-xr

  • Multi-Gas TD100-xr – for the first time, enabling certified thermal desorption instruments to be run with a choice of carrier gases: helium, nitrogen and hydrogen.
  • Enhanced throughput – Capacity for up to 100 tubes and the ability to use overlap mode allow you to maximise productivity (for example, by running samples unattended all weekend).
  • Peace of mind– With quantitative sample re-collection for repeat analysis, TD100-xr offers simple method/data validation and overcomes the ‘one-shot’ limitation of other systems.
  • Broad analyte range – TD100-xr is compatible with analysis of VOCs from C3 to C44, including reactive and thermally labile species.
  • Wide concentration range – The option of sample stacking for increased sensitivity, and the ability to vary split ratios from splitless to 125,000:1, enable high-loading and trace-level analytes to be monitored using the same TD100-xr instrument.
  • Low running costs– Rapid operation of the electrically-cooled focusing trap eliminates the cost of expensive and hazardous cryogen, and the associated risk of ice blockage of the flow path.
  • Standard-method compliance – Tube and flow-path leak testing, water management options, and addition of internal standards ensure full compliance with key methods, such as those issued by the US EPA, Chinese EPA and CEN.
  • Secure, reliable analysis – Tubes remain capped at all times, so avoiding sample contamination and/or analyte loss.
  • Simplified chain of custody – The on-board TubeTAG read/write functionality automatically updates tube and sample information during analysis.
  • Advanced software control – Automated intelligent diagnostics and troubleshooting, usage and maintenance counters, rapid method set-up and customisable limits help to maximise uptime.
  • Cross-platform compatibility – The short, heated transfer line means that TD100-xr can be installed on all major makes of GC and GC–MS.
