The eXact³ is a portable motor driven syringe system designed for precise liquid dispensing. It is suitable for applications such as programmed liquid dispensing, micro HPLC, semi-automated SPE, filtration and membrane separations. eXact³ is ideally suited to many liquid handling tasks around the laboratory as well as method development for the ePrep Sample Preparation Workstation.
The eXact³ controller can be programmed in Quick Run or Method modes. Method mode enables the creation of a comprehensive flow sequence, controlling volume and flow-rate at each step and can be saved for future reproducible method process.
A Calibrations Standards module is also available for eXact³.
An ergonomically designed hand-held device that contains a powerful motor to drive the syringe. The handle is powered via a cable through a 24 volt power supply. Run trigger buttons are located on both the front of the handle and on the Controller touch screen.
Quick Run has been designed for simplicity and efficiency. It allows the user to quickly create and execute a basic process with the eXact³ and can be as simple to use as picking up a manual syringe while providing extreme precision.
Creating specific methods, saving, editing or copying existing methods can all be achieved through this menu. Methods can include a range of differing functions such as Prime, Purge, Aspirate, Dispense, Loop, Prompt and Pause. Methods can be built with multiple steps, saved and recalled for future use. Options are also provided to control parameters such as volume, flow-rate, priming, pausing and setting residual volume for the applicable functions. Even µSPE processes can be programmed.
The control software is intuitive to operate with programs created in moments.
The software has 3 standard menus: Quick Run (for quick and simple methods), Method Run (for more customised, saved and complex methods) and Settings (with basic preference adjustments, software updates, re-zeroing of plunger and changing the syringe).
Options to change syringe, re-zero plunger and basic preferences can be accessed from the Settings menu. Settings also include time and date, brightness, sleep settings, sound levels, Bluetooth connection and updating software.
