Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has launched the CLAM-2040, a fully automated online sample prep module for liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LCMS) analysis. The new module automatically performs all processes necessary for analyzing biological samples, including sample and reagent pipetting, mixing, heating, vacuum filtration, and transferring the extracted sample to the LCMS system autosampler. It can prepare up to three samples simultaneously, and can deliver up to one result every 2.6 minutes under optimized conditions, Shimadzu said.
