XTrac® Series

Robotic Extraction Stations

Sample Handling Uniformity and precise quantitation are ensured by automating the precise time each sample is exposed to extraction solvent, with programmable concentrations and sampling/end points.

Identification of Analytes in any of these assays is relatively simple but accurate quantification requires stringent adherence to timed exposure to extraction solvent, and accurate/documented measurement of sample mass.
