CENTURION Water/Soil Purge and Trap Autosampler

The CENTURION is available as a combined water/soil purge and trap autosampler or water only system from EST analytical.  Purge and trap refer to the headspace technique in which volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are purged out of the sample matrix by an inert gas and carried onto a sorbent trap, where they are concentrated and later introduced into an instrument (e.g., gas chromatography (GC) or GC/mass spectrometry (MS)) for analysis.

Laboratories from around the world will enjoy the benefits of increased purge and trap sample throughput, instrument reliability, and optimized sample preparation using the CENTURION autosampler. Chemists and Technicians can maximize productivity and profitability, while easily operating from any PC in a lab with the EST Analytical CENTURION water/soil or water only auto sampler. The CENTURION platform is proven to be robust and reliable. Check out the CENTURION and see why labs around the world are choosing it and have come to rely on us for their VOC sample testing needs.
