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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
