CHRONECT Symbiosis | Glyphosate

The CHRONECT Symbiosis Glyphsate version reduces sample preparation time and boosts sharper LC peaks.

The CHRONECT Workstation Glyphosate consists of an XYZ robot with a centrifuge, vortexer, and agitator, an online SPE unit with prepared methods, and the specialized cartridges CHROSPE Glyphosate. Utilization of standard SPE cartridges for simple matrices, e.g. C8 or C18 phases, is possible.

NOTE – CHRONECT Workstation Glyphosate will be delivered with ready-to-use methods for different matrices.

With this workstation by Axel Semrau®, it is possible to properly determine Glyphosate, Glufosinate, and AMPA in complex matrices, for example, foodstuff. Being a front-end solution, the workstation can be coupled to various LC-MS/MS systems. Direct injection, and online SPE (with or without derivatization of the sample) are readily available on the device.

CHRONECT Symbiosis is controlled by CHRONOS Symbiosis 

CHRONOS organizes the connection to the LC-MS. All CHRONECT Symbiosis systems are able to process multiple batches/assays quickly and reliably with maximum analytical performance without supervision.
