Kyoto/Japan — Manufacturer of analytical instrumentation, Shimadzu, launched the AOC-30 series of automatic sample injection systems for gas chromatographs. In addition to high basic performance levels, the new series offers enhanced functionality that ensures reliable, long-term operation and supports working remotely. The space-saving design makes it easier to mount on GC or GC/MS systems with limited space availability and facilitates system expansion based on analytical objectives.

Equipped with unique technologies and functionalities, the AOC-30 series automatic sample injection systems offer the automation, productivity and remote operability needed for next-generation laboratories. The new series helps ensure that anyone can operate the instrument and obtain expert-level results for routine analysis work in pharmaceutical, chemical and environmental fields.

Autoinjectors such as the AOC-30 series use a syringe to draw samples from vials loaded in a tray and inject them into the GC or GC/MS unit, whereas autosamplers do not have injection functionality but are used to supply samples to the autoinjector. Both units combined are called automatic sample injection systems. By mechanizing the manual sampling (sample injection) process, they help to increase productivity and improve the accuracy of simultaneous multi-analyte analysis.
