Highest Possible Throughput

Robotic tongs grab the sample holder and place it onto the rotary stage. Data acquisition and sample change are fully automated, the presence of an operator during analysis is not required.

Depending on the model, the carousel allows simultaneous installation of up to 16 samples. Already processed samples can be identified by status LEDs and may be replaced with new samples at any time during the ongoing scan.
