    Autosampler Enclosures

    ICP and ICPMS sample integrity is maintained with the ESI SC-DX autosampler enclosures. The enclosures can be configured either as a dust cover or ULPA-filtered minienvironment.


    • Protects samples from airborne contamination
    • Exhaust acid fumes to protect the laboratory environment
    • Clear acrylic construction for easy sample viewing
    • Covers only the sample area—the electronics are kept outside the enclosure
    • Large hinged door provides easy access to sample racks at any time
    • Exhaust port (50 mm, included) connects to laboratory ventilation system
    • The ULPA (Ultra-Low Particle Arrester) filter upgrade is 99.999% efficient down to 0.12 microns

    Enclosure Only With ULPA Filter Description
    SC-1207-DX SC-1207-DX-1000 Enclosure for SC-2 DX Autosampler

    ULPA - Ultra-Low Particulate Arrester Air Filter and Mounting Plate

    The ULPA (Ultra-Low Particle Arrester) filter creates a clean, positive pressure environment for samples and standards and prevents airborne contamination. The ULPA filter removes 99.999% of 0.12 micron particles.

    The ULPA filter mounting plate fits the SC-2 DX, SC-4 DX, SC-µDX and microFAST-MC on either the right or left side of the enclosure.

    The mobile station for the SC-2 Autosampler secures and positions the SC-DX, eliminating the need for an autosampler table. The SC-DX mobile station offers many other benefits (not included with purchase of the autosampler).


    • Convenient - Autosampler, pumps, rinse and waste bottles contained in a single unit
    • Compact - Footprint only slightly larger than autosampler itself, saving valuable lab space and maintaining accessibility to sample racks
    • Attractive - Station eliminates need for separate table
    • Mobile -
      • Locking wheels easily unlatch to move autosampler for instrument maintenance
      • Eliminates unnecessary external connections to rinse solution and waste reservoirs
      • The intermediate shelf can be used to support automation options such as syringe pumps or for storage of optimization solutions
      • The lower shelf holds rinse solution and waste bottles and allows the rinse container to be refilled in place
      • Integrated enclosure with or without ULPA filtered environment
