Achieve full automation of your Twister® workflow from sample to analysis report, eliminating manual steps and increasing efficiency.

Simplest possible process:

  1. Add your sample to a vial, seal it with a screw cap, and place it in the MultiPurpose Sampler MPS tray.
  2. The MPS inserts the designated AutoTwister rod into the sample.
  3. The vial is transferred to the quickMIX module for high-energy agitation and analyte extraction.
  4. Matrix residue is rinsed from the AutoTwister rod in the dedicated Wash & Dry  station.
  5. The AutoTwister rod is quickly dried through high speed rotation in clean and inert atmosphere in the drying station.
  6. The MPS transfers the AutoTwister Rod to the TDU 2 for thermal desorption and GC-MS analysis.
