Auto-Rx Disc

A small filter that prevents the derivatization reagent from wicking out of the sample cup. Now compatible with the Auto-Shot Sampler.

When TMAH is added to a sample cup, the TMAH often wicks up the sample cup leaving a sticky film on the outer surface of the cup. A sticky cup does not ‘free fall’ properly nor is it ejected smoothly when an Auto-Shot Sampler is used.
By placing an Auto-Rx Disc at the bottom of the sample cup, the fine glass fibers of the disc adsorb extra TMAH solution (up to 5 µL), preventing the TMAH from wicking out of the sample cup. This allows the analyst to automate reactive pyrolysis experiments by using the Auto-Shot Sampler.
