Teledyne CETAC Carousel Autosamplers for Low and Medium Volume Liquid Samples Webinar Recording

Teledyne CETAC Carousel Autosamplers for Low and Medium Volume Liquid Samples Webinar Recording

Enjoy this webinar audio that will provide information on use of carousel type autosamplers with an integrated enclosure for high sensitivity ICP-MS work; benefits include ability to handle low-volume (less than 2mL) samples while preventing sample contamination.   These autosamplers can be used as standalone systems or with another accessory such as the Aridus3 Desolvating Nebulizer System.

The audio presentation will cover the following information on the ASX-110FR and ASX-112FR Carousel Autosamplers: 

Autosampler setup, rinse station options and integrated enclosure Autosampler sample rack and vial options Autosampler maintenance and troubleshooting

This presentation is designed for: 

Customers using ICP-MS (quadrupole, magnetic sector, and multicollector types) for trace element detection in semiconductors or isotope ratio measurements in geochemistry.

Fred Smith, Teledyne CETAC Product Line Technical Manager for Nebulizer and Enclosure products will be presenting this podcast.
