DAAMS instruments Automated thermal desorption for 4½" sorbent tube analysis


Benefits of Markes' DAAMS systems

  • Enhanced throughput – Capacity for up to 100 × 4½" tubes and the ability to use overlap mode allow you to maximise productivity (for example, by running samples unattended all weekend).

  • Peace of mind – Quantitative sample re-collection for repeat analysis allows simple method/data validation, overcomes the ‘one-shot’ limitation of other systems and enables sample archiving.

  • Broad analyte range – Short, ultra-inert flow path ensures compatibility with a wide range of chemical agents and other analytes from C3 to C44.

  • Low running costs – Rapid operation of the electrically-cooled focusing trap eliminates the cost of expensive and hazardous cryogen, and the associated risk of ice blockage of the flow path.

  • Secure, reliable analysis – DiffLok caps eliminate the possibility of sample contamination and/or analyte loss, whilst removing the need to uncap samples.

  • Simplified chain of custody – The on-board TubeTAG read/write functionality automatically updates tube and sample information during analysis.

  • Future-proof – Options to add autosamplers for industry-standard 3½? tubes, canisters or on-line sampling allow greater flexibility as your needs evolve.
