Beskrivelse

Automation of the entire workflow for DBS analysis in minutes, providing maximum sensitivity without any manual intervention. With the potential for many other biological samples, the DBS Autosampler from Spark sets a new standard for analysis!* US patent no. US 8586382 B2

  • Unique FTD™ technology for sample prep and optional on-line coupling to (SPE)(LC)
  • MS/MS
  • Option for mounting different clamp sizes for the desorption of different sized spots – adjustable clamp head sizes of 2, 4, 6 or 8 mm
  • Intelligent camera and image analysis software for
    – accurate spot recognition and positioning
    – barcode identification for 2D barcodes
    – storage, tracking and tracing of sample
