STAR Rapid Open Vessel Sample Preparation

Though, the STAR System is designed for convenience and flexibility, freeing the analyst from the time-consuming tasks involved in sample preparation. The STAR System automatically adds reagent to the vessels according to the requirements of the programmed method. The reagent is added in aliquots while the digestion is running to prevent cooling the digestate. The system’s proprietary pump technology ensures that an accurate measurement of reagent is delivered instantaneously on demand. Each reagent has a dedicated pump for every cell eliminating any mixing or cross contamination of reagents.
