SegFlow S3® – Automated Sampling System

The new generation of the Flownamics automated sampling system, the SegFlow S3® product line, is characterized by robust hardware, the intuitive handling of hoses with intelligent pinch valves and non-contact ultrasonic sensors. A series of LED status lights indicate the phases of sampling and the sequence of cleaning, rinsing, sampling, air, idling and the end of the process.

The new user interface offers intuitive menus with more planning options and reagent status information. The optional Sample-Mod S3® module is used for sample pre-dilution in selectable steps up to 1:10, can automatically add reagents to the native sample and distributes the sample to up to four analysis or filling systems. The cleaning and disinfection of the flow channel takes place from the central Reagent-Mod S3® module. The cooled filling station models FlowFraction 400 or 500 fill the sample into sample vessels, e.g. 15 ml centrifuge tubes.
