We use the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler, with its huge range of unique accessories, to automate the processing of your samples.

This gives seamless integration with Agilent Technologies’ GC and GC-MS platforms and Syft Technologies' SIFT-MS instruments.
If you are involved in analytical R&D, you just don’t know where your research will lead, or what you may have to do tomorrow.

For sample preparation, automation may well be important to you and you will certainly benefit from the great flexibility the GERSTEL MultiFlex MPS gives you.
AutoPrep solutions, based upon the GERSTEL MPS are built with three things in mind: dependability, throughput and low consumable costs.

All have been tested in our laboratory and come with unlimited application support.
SIFT-MS joins GC-MS and LC-MS as one of the three essential tools that every analytical chemist should have.

SIFT-MS measures the concentrations of volatile substances (organic and inorganic) simply, directly and in real time.
The CF200 Robotic Centrifuge is capable, compact and integrates full with the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler.

The CF200 can process up to six samples simultaneously for maximum productivity.
Anatune knows the importance of excellent support.

From your perspective, anything that stops you from working efficiently is a problem.

We aim to have a fix - whatever is getting in your way!

Our applications team have years of experience gained by working in analytical laboratories of all types.

They know the instruments we sell inside out and will find sensible solutions to to the analytical challenges you face.
Training is an investment and you can never have too much of it!

When your staff are well trained in the operation of an instrument, your return on investment is at its highest.

We are here to help this happen.
We offer preventative maintenance to keep your instruments working and a fast response if they stop.

Our support engineers are all experienced analysts and factory trained to support our products.
There are times when it is good to be able to call on some extra help or advice.

If you have a problem, we are always pleased to help.

Presentation Details

Automated Approaches to GC/Q-TOF Analysis

Automating sample preparation for the GC/Q-TOF.

This talk was given by Dan Carrier, our Laboratory Manager, at the Agilent GC/Q-TOF UK User Group Meeting in Manchester, on the 5th and 6th October 2017.

High-Throughput VOC and Inorganic Gas Analysis: Automated SIFT-MS

Article published in the American Laboratory Jan/Feb 2017 Edition, by Mark Perkins (Anatune), Vaughan Langford and Murray McEwan (Syft Technologies).

Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) enables direct, real-time monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and inorganic gases.  Unlike traditional chromatography-based techniques, there is no requirement to separate compounds prior to analysis.  Not only can challenging compounds, such as formaldehyde, ammonia and small sulphur compounds be analysed without Derivatisation or preconcentration, but these analyses can be completed in seconds.  Automating these analyses realises the full potential of the fast SIFT-MS-based measurements for diverse applications.

Automation of Liquid-Liquid Extraction Methodologies using an On-line GERSTEL MPS with Agilent 5977B High Efficiency Source

This presentation discusses automation options such as mixing/vortexing, evaporation, derivatisation, centrifugation, and solid phase extraction.

This presentation was given at the Diamond Jubilee Year ChromSoc meeting hosted by Syngenta Research Laboratories in October 2016.

Automation of Sample Preparation using a GERSTEL MPS2

This presentation will take you through why we automate, how we automate, a demo of Automated Extraction and Analysis of Acid Herbicides, and a demo on Methanolic  Extraction of Soil.

This was presented at the Agilent Environmental & Food Mass Spec Meeting, Bristol, in January 2016.

Use of Automated Sample Preparation Techniques for Challenging Sample by GC/MS

This talk highlights the advantages of the automation of simple laboratory tasks which not only save time but also due to the reduction in solvent volume, were cheaper and safer.

This presentation was given at the Chromatrographic Society Meeting on Analytical Challenges and Solutions for Difficult Pharmaceutical Molecules, which was held on the GSK site in Ware, early November 2015.

Automated SPE for NDMA and Metaldehyde in water using GC-QqQ

This presentation shows how analysis for NDMA and Metaldehyde in water can be fully automated. The method uses automated solid phase extraction followed by GC-QqQ.

Automated Sample Preparation and Introduction for the Analysis of Unknowns

The workshop discussed sample preparation and introduction techniques that are suitable for the analysis of ‘unknowns’ in different matrices and why the MultiFlex GC/Q-TOF is such a significant product.

Dynamic Headspace Analytical Techniques

GERSTEL applications chemists in Japan and Germany have developed a new approach to dynamic headspace sampling (DHS Multi-Desorption), that enables components of all volatilities and all polarities to be extracted from liquid phase samples. What is more, this can be done without transferring excessive amounts of water into the GC-MS system.

Using Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction (SBSE) for Taste and Odour Measurements in Drinking Water

A presentation on ‘Using Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction (SBSE) for Taste and Odour Measurements in Drinking Water’, given by Jeff Stubbs and Andy Golby of Anatune Ltd, at the UK Water Industry, Mutual Aid Meeting, hosted by Welsh Water, in Newport, Gwent.

Use of Automated Sample Preparation Techniques with GC-SQ, QQQ, and QTOF for Aqueous Samples

This presentation was presented at the 2014 Worldwide Distilled Conference in Glasgow. The purpose of this presentation is to show how we can automate challenging applications in distilled spirits.
