Shimadzu CLAM-2000 automated sample preparation module for LCMS
Shimadzu has released a fully automated sample preparation module (RUO) connected online for LCMS.
In recent years, there has been considerable progress in the use of mass spectrometers (MS) in the clinical research field due to their ability for high sensitivity detection, high specificity and possibilities of multiplexing analysis without the risk of cross reactions inherent to immunoassays.
In order to automatise the pretreatment of blood or other biological samples before LCMS analysis, Shimadzu has developed a fully automated sample preparation module called CLAM-2000 (Clinical Laboratory Automated sample preparation Module). The CLAM-2000 (RUO) is an automatic pretreatment system designed for customers that handle blood samples in pharmaceutical departments, medical departments or biological analysis laboratories that are dealing with issues of variability in analytical results or infection risk.
By simply placing blood collection tubes in the system, the product performs all other processes through to LCMS analysis automatically. Unlike dispensing systems, that are based on batch processing 96-well plates, the module is completely automatic from pretreatment to analysis and processes individual samples successively in parallel. Consequently, it results in uniform pretreatment times between samples, without slowing processing speed, and improves data reproducibility.
