SPEEDY is our automatic system for solid phase extraction and purification using 96 well filtration/SPE blocks or cartridges (1-5ml).
The unique vacuum box seals without any clamps or screws. This enables the robotic arm to open the lid, insert elution plates or racks and exchange filtration blocks or cartridge racks.
This makes SPEEDY a fully automatic system capable of processing large batches without intervention.
With 4 independent variable spacing probes, SPEEDY automatically conditions the sorbent, adds the sample, washes the column and finally elutes the sample from the sorbent using vacuum and/or positive pressure.
Positive pressure guarantees constant, reproducible flow rates and prevents volatile sorbents running dry.
SPEEDY runs on simple to use Windows® software. SPEEDY checks each cavity of the SPE/filter block or cartridge to see if it has been processed correctly and either provides a protocol or runs imperfectly processed columns again.
The high sample capacity makes SPEEDY an ideal front end for LC-MS and purification or extraction in Combinatorial Chemistry.
