SDX-HPLD High Performance Liquid Dilution
An innovative spin on proven technology
The SDX HPLD system combines the proven ASX-560 autosampler with a novel vortex mixing dilution accessory. The SDX makes use of a high precision syringe pump for both aliquot and diluent, but goes an additional step to vortex mix the resulting dilution prior to sample introduction to ICP and ICP-MS.
The SDX employs vortex mixing to promote homogenization of a sample to ensure accurate and precise analysis following dilution. The variety of sample matrices submitted for trace element analysis necessitates the need for mixing. This capability is long overdue, and should only improve data quality by fully homogenizing a dilution mixture rather than in-line combination.
