The FIAlab SMA-Z Flow Cell is constructed from Teflon, Plexiglas, ULTEM, PEEK or high grade Stainless Steel. We recommend Plexiglas or ULTEM since the flow through the cells and illumination can be inspected visually at any time.
The SMA-Z Cell's optical path length is available in 2.5, 5, 10, 50, 100 mm. This is the most frequently used Flow Cell for UV-VIS Spectrophotometry.
The Long Path Flow Cells are available with 5 to 50cm optical paths, with an internal volume of 4 microliters per 1 cm of length. The LP flow cells are ideally suited for very low level nutrient and trace element assays.. The flow cell allows absorbance measurements within 400 nm to 1000 range. Wetting surfaces are Fused Silica, Viton®, and PEEK. Contains no Teflon AF.
The SMA-USP Ultra-Short Path Flow Cell are designed for absorbance measurements of concentrated solutions, such as dyes or other optically dense fluids.. The optical path lengths can be chosen from 100 microns to 2000 microns. The SMA-USP flow cell is made from Spectrosil® Quartz and is ideal for monitoring within 170 nm to 2700 nm range. Eliminates or minimizes the need for pre-dilutions during online monitoring. Wetting surfaces are Fused Silica and Teflon.
The SMA-Fluorescence Flow Cell contains fused silica windows as wetting surfaces at each fiber optic junction. The recommended material for this flow cell is Black Ultem. The flow cell design is compatible with SMA-terminated fiber optics. The windows are removable for cleaning or replacement with another material with different optical bandpass properties. Each cell comes with Upchurch fittings, tubing, and instructions.
Traditional flow through quartz cuvettes are also available.
The ISE μ-FC is designed to accommodate Ion Selective Combination Electrodes, such as the VWR® sympHony® Fluoride Ion Selective Combination Electrode. The standard ISE μ-FC is built to handle an electrode with a 1/2 inch diameter. Other sizes are available (e.g., 12 mm), please specify. The Flow Cell internal volume is approximately 200 microliters, making it compatible with FIAlab-2500 and FIAlab-2600 instruments.
The FIAlab SMFC furnished with a hydrophobic membrane is designed for analysis of volatiles and gases ( ammonia, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, hydrogen cyanide/cyanides, ammines, formaldehyde, etc).
All our FIA analyzers comes with LOV as it improves the oragnization, increase transprency and ease troubleshooting. The LOV modules are standard components of the FIAlyzer-1000 and the FIAlyzer-2000 series. The advantage of LOV design is transparency of the entire flow path, that allows the user visual inspection of all manifold components, including injector valve and flow trough cell, at any time, without interruption of ongoing automated assays.
Sequential Injection in Lab-On-Valve® (LOV) format is a groundbreaking technology that has won enthusiastic acceptance in the research community for its versatility, and in the routine laboratory for its reliability. The LOV integrates manifold components, including fiber optic-coupled flow through cell, flow through port and microcolumns into a single unit mounted on a multiposition valve.
