Product News May 13, 2016
Horizon Technology, Inc. has announced the introduction of the SmartPrep® Cartridge Extractor II for method development and automation of previously developed manual methods. The SmartPrep II is a second-generation system with additional features and improved ruggedness. Positive pressure consistently delivers the sample and solvents, yielding reproducible unattended results.
Cartridges of 1, 3 and 6-mL size from most manufacturers can be used in the system, easing the transition to automation. “More extensive reporting and the implementation of an optional bar code reader speed the auxiliary tasks required when performing sample preparation” said Robert Johnson, CEO.
“We believe our customers will be pleased with the system improvements and continued attention to their needs and requests.” said David Cross, Director of Engineering. The SmartPrep II is designed for special environmental applications, such as 1,4 dioxane, nitrosamines, acetamide herbicide degradates, food preparation such as aflatoxins in peanut paste, and energy methods such as furans in transformer oils.
