Software for Efficient Operation of PAL Systems

The latest generation of PALs can all be controlled by the user friendly Chronos software. It interfaces seamlessly with many common CDS and MS-data systems  or can be used for offline sample preparation. With a few clicks you can import or generate sample lists and start the data acquisition. Or you can quickly set up workflows to eliminate tedious manual operations.  Chronos allows overlapping of time consuming steps. This increases sample throughput greatly and boosts productivity.

Easy to use routine software

Chronos software is the user-friendly tool for the daily routine jobs. With a few clicks sample lists are generated or imported. Now Chronos starts the operation and the data acquisition. Since Chronos interfaces seamlessly with most of the major chromatographic or MS data systems only one sample list has to be handled. Different user levels ensure process safety. 

CHRONOS key features:

  • Control of multiple PAL3 systems and PAL-xt's

  • Management of multiple sample lists

  • Sending SMS notifications

  • Supports a plugin interface which allows implementation of additional devices and custom features

Walk away QuEChERS extracts clean-up

See this detailed video of the µSPE workflow for the clean-up of raw pesticides extract. The µSPE cartridge is operated in scavenger mode eluting the pesticides in a clean extract. The matrix is kept on the sorbent material. The cleaned extract can be injected without waiting time online for LC-MS or GC-MS analysis. All samples are treated on the same time axis for highest reliability.

Analysis of flavors, pesticides, and biomarkers directly from complex food matrix using the automated Vacuum In-Tube Extraction (V-ITEX)

Extraction of volatile compounds is a widely used approach for analysis of foods and beverages.  By the nature of gas phase sampling, the limiting factor for polar analytes are given by low vapor pressure or higher boiling points of semi-volatile compounds. These limitations can be overcome by sampling at decreased pressure levels using vacuum conditions. This has been shown in several publications using vacuum sampling techniques. In this study, a fully automated approach of Vacuum In-Tube Extraction (V-ITEX) is presented, a simple and fully automated technique using PAL system autosamplers. The application examples include flavors, fragrances, off-flavors, pesticides and biomarkers by extractions directly from the food sample matrix, such as Honey, Bee Wax, Cheese, Onions, Blood and Urine.

Fully Automated QuEChERS for Organochlorine and Organophosphate Pesticides in Tomato Juice and Red Wine

Using PAL Robotic Tool Change (RTC) system, a fully automated QuEChERS was developed for the extraction and clean-up of organochlorine and organophosphate pesticides from homogeneous samples. The automated QuEChERS workflow includes extraction with acetonitrile, salting out with
saturated sodium chloride solution and the clean-up with PAL μSPE prior to injection into the GC-MS/MS for analysis.
