• Assay Plates

    The FIAlyzer-FLEX uses assay “plates”, which allow the instrument to be quickly switched from one assay to another. These plates have pre-installed fluidic configurations for any assay. These configurations include mixing coils, flow cells, debubblers, and anything else that might change between assays. Simply snap these plates on and off to change between different methods.
  • Flow Cells

    Easily install any flow cell to the unit. All of FIAlab’s flow cells are mounted to the face of the instrument for ease of inspection and upkeep.
  • Internal Components

    Built into the FLEX are all the components needed for analysis. Inside you’ll find a high-precision heater, light source, spectrometer, amperometric detector, and anything else you might need. All of these devices are software controlled.
  • Upgraded Lab-On-Valve

    The FLEX features an upgraded Lab-On-Valve (LOV). This new LOV is small, efficient, and easy to clean.
  • Reagent Manifold

    This manifold provides ports and channels necessary for organized sample treatment. With 15 ports in our standard manifold, all practical assays can be accommodated here.
  • Named for its flexibility, the FIAlyzer-FLEX is a flow injection analyzer optimized for low-level colorimetric assays. Built specifically for detailed environmental analysis, this analyzer is a capable machine. Here are some of the advantages for using a FLEX:

    1. Low detection limits
    2. Wide range of assays
    3. Quick switching between assays
    4. Fast calibration - under 5 min
    5. Low reagent consumption
    6. EPA method compatible
    7. Able to run FIA and SFA methods

  • This instrument combines a high-performance spectrometer, a high-precision pump and heater, and optimized fluidic arrangements to offer detection limits in the fractions of parts per billion. These components allow it to hit detection targets for most environmental assays.

    Many assays require a large number of fluidic channels to combine reagents, carrier, sample, or buffers. The FIAlyzer-FLEX comes equipped with a 24-channel, high-precision peristaltic pump. This pump, the Ismatec IP High-Precision Pump™, provides a range of flow rates and channels suitable for any colorimetric assay. Plus, each channel has an individual pump clamp, allowing for the use of various-sized tubing.

Product Highlights

SFA Compatible

Segmented Flow Analysis (SFA) has long been at odds with Flow Injection Analysis (FIA). There is still a debate about which is better. However, most would agree that some methods are more suited for SFA, and others are more suited for FIA. For years, labs have had to choose between an SFA or FIA system. No longer. This instrument can perform both forms of analysis.

Flexibility

The sheer number of required methods for environmental analysis calls for adaptable instrumentation. It calls for instruments that can not only hit low detection limits but that can switch between assays, stack together, and serve you without issues. The FIAlyzer-FLEX is that instrument.

Easily Switch Between Methods

The FIAlyzer-FLEX uses assay “plates”, which allow the instrument to be quickly switched from one assay to another. These plates have pre-installed fluidic configurations for any assay. Simply snap these plates on and off to change between different methods.

Benchspace

In many labs, bench space is limited. At just six inches wide, the FIAlyzer-FLEX is designed vertically to minimize its footprint while still allowing easy access to all the critical components.

Software

Software is just as important as hardware. In order to provide complete analytical solutions, we understand that we have to deliver quality hardware and polished software. Our instruments operate on the newest, most intuitive FIA software ever. This program will change the way you use flow injection. Click the link to find out how.
