LC Injectors and Autosamplers

The UltiMate® 3000 Autosampler Series features innovative and carefully designed autosampler modules that ensure reliable, precise, and accurate injection for nL to mL sample volumes. Select the right autosampler module to match your HPLC application, whether it requires a rapid separation, nano, capillary, micro, analytical, or semipreparative column and system configuration. Each UltiMate 3000 autosampler provides a highly integrated solution with optimal fluidic connections, single-point control through Chromeleon® Chromatography Data System software, and seamless inter-module communications with the pump, flow-control module, thermostatted column compartment, and detectors. 

The ACC-3000 Autosampler Column Compartment features an integrated column oven and provides a cost-effective solution for routine analyses and UHPLC operation of up to 62 MPa (9000 psi).

  • Any combination of four different sample tray formats, including well plates (WPS only)—all of which can be used in the same autosampling sequence
  • Robust injections at pressures up to 1000 bar with the patented injection valve design of the Rapid Separation Autosampler
  • The RSLCnano Autosampler is the ideal solution for chromatographers seeking to work with the highest injection precision at nano/capillary/micro flow rates in UHPLC applications
  • Patented temperature control option for the sample carousel compartment that protects thermally sensitive samples from destructive temperature gradients
  • Automated validation procedures with Chromeleon software that saves time and effort in bringing an LC system on-line
  • Stainless steel and biocompatible sampler options
  • Intuitive, predefined diagnostic tests and troubleshooting guides to identify and promptly resolve operational interruptions
  • Easy access to all fluidic components from the front panel through the flip-up door panel allows servicing of autosampler without moving other modules in the UltiMate 3000 stack

RSLCnano Autosampler

The WPS-3000 Well Plate Autosampler has been specifically designed to provide unattended sample throughput, combined with highly reproducible injections of even the smallest samples volumes. The RLSCnano Well Plate Sampler extends these capabilities to pressures up to 1000 bar.

Rapid Separation LC (RSLC) Autosampler

The UltiMate 3000 Rapid Separation Autosampler injects sample volumes up to 500 μL at pressures up to 15,000 psi (103.4 MPa).

Analytical Autosampler

The UltiMate® 3000 Analytical Autosampler WPS-3000(T)SL is highly versatile in sample format and injection volume, and operates at system pressures up to 62 MPa (9000 psi).

Biocompatible Analytical Autosampler

The UltiMate 3000 Biocompatible Analytical Autosampler WPS-3000TBPL has been specifically designed to provide rapid, accurate, and precise injections of complex samples containing biomolecules.

Biocompatible Rapid Separation Thermostatted Autosampler for Electrochemical Detection

The Analytical Thermostatted Autosampler is designed for electrochemical detection with Dionex’s highly sensitive Coulochem® III electrochemical detector.

Autosampler Column Compartment

The UltiMate® 3000 Autosampler Column Compartment ACC-3000(T) provides a cost-effective solution ideally suited for routine analyses in many industrial fields and is compatible with UHPLC applications up to 62 MPa (9000 psi).

Analytical Autosampler with Fraction Collector

With two integrated switching valves, the WPS-3000FC Autosampler supports sample injection and fractionation. The instrument fully automates off-line multidimensional and multistep liquid chromatography in analytical and micro flow rate ranges.

Semipreparative Autosampler

The UltiMate 3000 Semipreparative Autosampler WPS-3000(T) SL performs reliable, accurate, and precise injections in semipreparative LC applications.

Nano/Capillary Autosampler

The UltiMate 3000 Nano/Capillary Autosamplers WPS-3000(T)PL and WPS-3000TBPL (biocompatible) have been specifically designed to provide reliable unattended sample throughput and handling of nL sample volumes.

Manual Injectors

Manual Injector Kits are available in two versions, for analytical- and semipreparative-scale injections.
