Building on the success of Air Server for automated on-line sampling of air / gas streams, the new ASIS 8 module from Markes International connects to the company’s UNITY or ULTRA-UNITY thermal desorption (TD) systems to provide enhanced, cryogen-free and automated analysis of VOCs in canisters, Tedlar™ bags and other whole air/gas containers.
The ASIS 8 comprises thermostatted, 8-channel stream selection hardware complete with inert sample flow path and an internal standard addition facility. This complies with US EPA Method TO-15 for monitoring volatile organic Air Toxics in ambient air using canisters.
Featuring cryogen-free operation combined with unbeatable chromatographic performance, UNITY-ASIS 8 systems allow sequential analysis of up to 8 canisters. The new technology provides best possible detection limits for trace-level vapour-phase organics while significantly reducing laboratory running costs by removing the expense and downtime associated with liquid cryogen
