The TurboTrace Parallel SPE system combines extraction, drying and concentration into one step — providing a truly automated total sample prep solution for the laboratory. Simply load samples onto the TurboTrace Parallel SPE system, use the touch screen to trigger the automated extraction process.  Load the sample onto the SPE cartridge using Vacuum or Positive Pressure Pumping, the drying step is accomplished using vacuum or nitrogen or both. This drying step replaces manual techniques such as sodium sulfate drying. The analytes of interest are then eluted directly to the SuperVap Concentrator where the concentration process automatically brings the extract to final volume in a autosampler vial, ready for final analysis. Automating these processes into one step ensures the highest quality results in the shortest amount of time and eliminates both human error and the possibility of contamination.

The TurboTrace Parallel SPE system incorporates vacuum or positive pressure pump to load samples for compliance with all SPE methods.  It uses positive pressure pumping for precise and accurate delivery of conditioning, washing and elution solvents. The TurboTrace Parallel SPE system is specifically designed to isolate analytes of interest from a wide variety of liquid matrices such as urine, blood, water, milk, beverages. Sample sizes range from 2 mL to 8 L and use the same bottle the sample was collected in. Sample loading rates are programmable. A vacuum or positive pressure pump is used to load samples onto the SPE cartridges and columns at unprecedented speeds and it easily handles both clean and tough sample matrices. An liquid sensor detects when the sample has been loaded, triggering the system to initate next steps.  The TurboTrace Parallel SPE system concentrates samples up to 250 mL directly to a GC vial. The Sample Processing Module is designed to use all standard formats of SPE cartridges and columns on the market today. For guaranteed results, especially when dealing with low limits of detection, we recommend FMS prepacked columns and cartridges. Sample Processing Modules can be easily swapped out to perform cleanup column chemistries allowing the lab to multipurpose the TurboTrace Parallel SPE system to automate other sample prep processes.
