AM1 Alcohol Analyser

The AM1 analyser is used for Clinical Research applications and offers researchers into alcoholism a very fast method of obtaining results with small animal models. In addition the small sample size (5ul) enables real-time results to be obtained during experiments.

Application Areas

Alcoholism research

Operation

After calibration with an appropriate standard, the single injection of sample is all that is needed to obtain a result and prepare the analyser for the next analysis.

Sample injection via an accurate positive displacement pipette triggers the complete analytical cycle and a hard-copy result is printed within 20 seconds.
