prepFAST Flame

The Ultimate Sample Introduction System!

The prepFAST flame adds the functionality of a FAST valve to the prepFlame system for high throughput applications. The prepFAST Flame reduces sample uptake, stabilization, and rinse times. Automated inline dilution of samples and standards improves laboratory efficiency and sample throughput.

Accuracy of dilution is illustrated by excellent linearity of the calibration curve (r > 0.999). Sample dilution can be predefined on a persample basis, allowing for a wide range of dilution factors (1x-40x) to be used when sample types or elemental concentrations vary greatly. This system utilizes two precision peristaltic pumps, one for sample carrier and the other for dilution. The total flow rate delivered by the two peristaltic pumps is constant, but the ratio of the two flows is automatically varied to dilute samples or to build a calibration curve by dilution of a single standard solution.
