The Cetac SDS-550 Sample Dilution Module works in conjunction with the SDS-550 Dilution System comprised of the Cetac ASX-520 AutoSampler and a host computer (both sold separately). The SDS-550 Sample Dilution System is designed to be sturdy, reliable, and easy to use and provides automated sample dilution that enables you to perform other tasks while the SDS-550 runs. The SDS-550 can automatically process up to 180 samples when fully loaded. It contains a microprocessor that allows sequential or random sample dilution, providing flexibility. The SDS-550 System is typically controlled by a host computer using a serial communications protocol.
The SDS-550 Sample Dilution Module consists of three main components: a 10-ml syringe, a three-way solenoid valve, and a 10 ml sample loop. The enclosure for the Dilution Module is also made from a high-strength aluminum alloy that is chromated and finished with an epoxy powder coating. The module operates reliably under a wide variety of conditions. Components in the sample flow path are made of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), Kel-F®1, and glass.
- Solenoid Valve: The three-way solenoid valve allows the addition of one reagent during dilution. Wetted surfaces are made of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene).
- Sample Loop: The 10-mL sample loop, made from PTFE tubing, prevents sample from reaching and possibly contaminating the syringe.
- Syringe: The 10-mL syringe will uptake sample, a reagent (if desired), and diluent solution. Wetted surfaces are made of Kel-F® and glass
