Robotic Sample Preparation
With 40.000 systems sold CTC Analytics AG is a leader in front-end automation for gas and liquid chromatography.

The PAL RTC removes bottlenecks in lab workflows. In seconds the RTC changes automatically between different syringes, liquid injection, headspace, and solid phase micro extraction (SPME) without the need for manual intervention. This boosts productivity and expands the application range. The brand-new PAL RSI is the robust workhorse for the demanding routine operation. Optional for both systems are a vortex mixer, incubator, temperature controlled storage and a complete range of valves and syringes (1 μL to10 mL). Liquid-liquid extraction, derivatisation, standard addition and manual dilution are now smooth and traceable.

The user-friendly PAL Sample Control software controls the RTC and RSI. With a few clicks one can import or generate sample lists and start the data acquisition. Or one can quickly set up workflows to eliminate tedious manual operations.
