New Sample Preparation System from Teledyne Tekmar


On the 30th of September, at the AOAC meeting in Las Vegas, Teledyne Tekmar launched a brand new chromatography sample prep automation system, the AutoMate-Q40.

Teledyne Tekmar are a company that know how to do their homework and this is undoubtedly, a very interesting and significant new product.

This brief video clip shows how the AutoMate-Q40 operates.

As launched, the AutoMate-Q40 is specifically designed and optimised to automate the QuEChERS sample preparation workflow (for the clean-up of pesticide residues in food).

The system is pre-configured to conduct two of the most popular QuEChERS sample preparation methods: AOAC 2007.01 (Pesticide Residues in Food by Acetonitrile Extraction and Partitioning with Magnesium Sulfate) and EN 15662.2008 (Foods of Plant Origin-Determination of Pesticide Residues Using GC-MS and/or LC-MS/MS Following Acetonitrile Extraction/Partitioning and Clean-up by Dispersive SPE-QuEChERS method).

When I watched the CAD video, several things were apparent to me:

  1. This is a very competent instrument.
  2. It is designed to use bulk reagents rather than QuEChERS kits. This will save users a fortune in consumable costs.
  3. The instrument will be capable of a lot more than just QuEChERS automation.

Please download a copy of the brochure here.

The instrument will be available for sale in the UK sometime in the new year and we are starting to put some plans together.

I want to locate a small number of organisations using QuEChERS routinely, who would like to work with us (Anatune & Teledyne Tekmar) to establish the suitability of the AutoMate-Q40 for European needs prior to launch.

Those that do participate will have the benefit of the inside track on this significant new instrument.

If you are interested, please let us know on enquiries@anatune.co.uk or call me on: +44 (0)1223 279210.
