Dionex ASE 350, Rocket Evaporator, and ISQ GC-MS


Thermo Scientific Dionex ASE 350
Accelerated Solvent Extractor
and Rocket Evaporator
  • Automatically extract up to 24 samples (1–100 grams each)
  • Faster than Soxhlet, sonication, and other extraction methods
  • Requires less solvent and labor
  • Evaporate to dry samples completely, or concentrate to a small volume
  • High levels of solvent recovery, even with volatile organic solvents
Thermo Scientific
ISQ Single Quadrupole GC-MS
  • Extend instrument uptime with unique Full Source Removal for continuous day-in, day-out operation
  • Improve sample throughput using fast data acquisition rates
  • Extended mass range for analytical versatility
  • Comprehensive Full Scan/SIM for screening and confirmation in the same analysis

A Dionex™ ASE™ 350 plus the Rocket™ Evaporator for automated sample preparation, combined with the proven analytical capabilities of our Thermo Scientific ISQ single quadrupole GC-MS, comprise an integrated workflow that delivers increased productivity and sample throughput— a green solution with less solvent usage and waste at a lower cost per sample.
The Dionex ASE 350 for rapid and complete extraction brings proven and validated technology to sample preparation. The Dionex ASE 350 provides true walk-away automation for unattended operation and high productivity to any laboratory. The flow-through operation allows for the use of adsorbents that can produce extracts essentially free from interferences. The temperature and pressure conditions enable sample extractions in less than 15 minutes each on average with 90% less solvent than traditional methods.

Wide mass range covers broad application needs


EnviroLab Forms data review

The Rocket Evaporator is a vacuum-based centrifuge evaporator that can concentrate samples automatically and recover 95% or greater of the evaporated solvent. In addition, SampleGenie® enables samples to be concentrated or dried directly into the storage or autosampler vial without the need for manual transfers or graduated washing steps. SampleGenie saves time and eliminates handling errors. In effect, it achieves sample transfer automation, but without the robotics.
Transferring your environmental samples to the ISQ™ single quadrupole GC-MS for analysis now means using a new source design that lets your system stay cleaner longer. With heat throughout the ion optics, the system can analyze more samples per day with maximum uptime. And the broad dynamic range accommodates concentration variations from sample to sample with ease. When it comes to analyzing your data, Thermo Scientific EnviroLab Forms software handles the sample throughput and stringent quality control requirements of the environmental lab.
