AOX Analysis Made Profitable

Perfectly harmonized sample preparation and analysis systems enable to reach a new benchmark in AOX analysis efficiency. A wide portfolio of matrix-, application- and throughput optimized sample preparation systems allow for maximum throughput at minimum operation effort. Reduced idle-times, robust hardware and a minimum maintenance requirement play an important role too.

APU 28 series top performance around the clock

With the versatile automatic AOX sample preparation systems of the type APU 28 series, you stay flexible and are well prepared for any type of AOX sample preparation according to classical column and SPE-AOX method. Enrichment for AOF-applications is possible too.

As sample preparation is the bottleneck in the analysis workflow, the intelligent parallel enrichment strategy allows to double your speed. The APU 28 systems are optimal for unattended operation, high sample series and high throughput demand as in environmental routine and contract labs required.

  • Automatic enrichment of up to 28 samples
  • Ideal for unattended and 24/7 operation
  • Extremely robust, suitable for highly saline samples (APU 28 SPE)
  • Column flexibility – utilization of versatile AOX column brands and sizes (APU flexi)
  • Suitable for AOF sample preparation – ultra-low system blanks
  • Time saving simultaneous enrichment (APU 28 S)

APU sim the clever sample preparation system according to column method

As ideal solution for small sample numers the APU sim offers unique flexibility in preparation. Tailor the sample preparation to your specific needs –independant from 1 up to to 3 columns (2 columns + prefilter for particle-containing samples), AOF applications, or even semi-automated SPE-AOX enrichment for highly saline samples.

  • Wide application range - AOX column method, AOX-SPE, duplex ( 2 columns) and triplex (2 columns and pre-filter) adsorption
  • Cost-effective solution for small sample series
  • High throughput speed - up to 6 samples prepared simultaneously
  • Extremely robust, suitable for particle-containing and saline samples
  • Column flexibility – utilization of versatile AOX column brands and sizes
  • Suitable for AOF sample preparation – ultra-low system blanks

  • Application flexibility - AOX sample preparation acc. batch and column method
  • Versatile - perfectly suited for processing sludge, slurry and wastewater samles
  • Semi-automated enrichment of up to 3 samples simultaneously
  • Attractive alternative to classic membrane filtration (batch)
  • Easy operation, fast processing without sample loss – pressure-supported filtration (batch)
  • High operational safety – pressure proof sample vessels and protective front cover
