The SPS-5 Sample Preparation System is a random-access autosampler which can be connected to all of the AA, ICP and UV spectrometers currently manufactured by Varian. It can hold up to 500 samples when the optional rear rack extension is fitted. A fume hood is also available.
A range of rack types is available for different test tube sizes. Rack hole sizes can be further customized with the 60 position (Type 25) rack for different test tube diameters. The SPS-5 is compatible with the optional on-line Auto-Diluter.
The SPS-5 autosampler includes rinse station, two racks (Type 25 and Type A) and inert probe. Standard configuration allows up to three sample or standard racks to be used at once. With the optional rack extension, up to five racks may be accommodated. Racks must be ordered separately. The autosampler requires but does not include test tubes/bottles.
The SPS-5 is also available in a fibreoptic autosampler version for use with the Cary 1, 3, 4, 5, 50, 100, 300, 400 and 500 with the Cary WinUV software. Version 2 of the WinUV software does not support use of the SPS-5 with the normal liquid sampling probe nor does it support the optional Diluter.
