The 1088 Rotary Autosampler is specifically designed to operate with the Aurora 1030W TOC analyzer or Aurora 1030C TOC analyzer. The 1088 autosampler aspirates liquid samples from vials and transfers each sample aliquot to an Aurora 1030 TOC analyzer for analysis. A removable 88-position autosampler tray loads the sample vials for fully automated, unattended operation.
The 1088 supports a number of special functions to address a range of sample conditions and analysis requirements. Onboard magnetic stirring ensures samples containing insoluble components or particles are homogeneous for sampling and accurate analysis. Septum piercing provides closed vial sampling for applications where open vials may comprise the accuracy of measurements. System configuration for sample pretreatment allows pre-acidification and purging of samples within the 1088 prior to sampling. This technique removes the TIC content of samples, reducing the analysis time required for TOC measurements.
