S4 T-STAR is the first TXRF spectrometer that automatically runs QC routines for operational and performance qualification in the background. Integrated QA samples allow automatic stability and sensitivity checks.
SampleCare™ constantly protects your samples and improves the quality of your data. The reduced air flow and integrated sample housing minimizes sample contamination.
Control the quality of your sample with a magnified image by a CCD camera. All sample images are automatically archived for subsequent review.
The S4 T-STAR sample changer offers a high capacity of up to 90 sample discs and supports automated batch processing, e.g. for efficient measurements overnight. It is designed for multi-user operation and can be loaded with up to 10 different trays. This allows loading and unloading while the instrument is measuring another sample.
Dedicated sample trays for different sample types are available. The trays are automatically recognized when inserted into the spectrometer. This prevents conflicts in case of different carrier types. It also enables the automatic loading and immediate start of any open measurement job.
Trays can be stored in stackable boxes preventing contamination of the sample carriers. The bottom plate includes center markings, which allows direct pipetting of any sample without touching the sample carrier.
Typically, samples are prepared multiple times. Right after measurement the software automatically reports statistical data (average, standard deviation etc.). Standard libraries allow the determination of recoveries. Any deviation of the admissible tolerance will be highlighted.
