    Automated Digestion Systems by Thomas Cain

    Through Thomas Cain Inc. CETAC Technologies is offering manual and automated block digesters that make the analysis of metals and other compounds simpler, faster and safer. When compared to traditional automated block digesters the family of Thomas Cain Inc. automated digestion systems increases the precision of the digestion process by using pulseless delivery pump technologies, ultrasonic level sensors and color sensor technologies that together prove accurate and reliable under any circumstance.

    • Improves laboratory safety
    • Reduces manual handling of acids
    • Increases efficiency & frees up technicians' time
    • Provides consistent results

    As the U.S distributor CETAC Technologies will install and support the entire line of Thomas Cain Inc. products from our world headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. Together with Thomas Cain Inc. we make your manual or automated sample digestion and preparations easier by offering a line of DEENA, ERICA, SmartBlock and other accessories to make your digestion process or procedures completely manageable under any circumstance. Contact us today for U.S. domestic orders shipped quickly to your lab.

     

    DEENA

    DEENA, an automated sample digestion system, fully automates the sample preparation for EPA and other laboratory methods that use hot water baths or heated blocks.

    In metal and mercury analyses, manual sample preparation often consists of many steps that are labor-intensive and time-consuming. DEENA alleviates most of the manual sample preparation and reduces the errors associated with sample handling. DEENA has the necessary functionality to automate your sample digestion process without modifying it.

    The DEENA automated digestion system is offered in three basic configurations;

    • 50 mL – 60 position, standard valve configuration
    • 15 mL – 96 position, standard valve configuration
    • 15 mL – 96 position, loop valve sonfiguration

    In addition to dispensing reagents and heating the samples, DEENA has the ability to prepare calibration and spike standards, shakes the samples, inspects their color, adjusts the sample volumes after the digestion process, and records every step taken in the process.

    DEENA in a standard valve configuration combined with the syringe module can handle up to 6 working standards to create calibration standards and control verification standards in addition to the capability of dispensing up to 8 reagents, for either the 60 or 96 position rack configuration. DEENA also includes a dedicated 9th reagent line for difficult solutions such as KMnO4 avoiding cross-contamination. The 3 racks of ether the 60 or 96 position standard valve configuration each having a capacity of 20 or 32 samples can be easily lifted off of the system for ease of handling and portability.

    DEENA in a loop valve configuration is system with the standard pulseless peristaltic pump and valve module removed and replaced with an accessory that will dispense two reagents plus DI water. The loop valve configuration is designed for customers that dispense minimal regents to digest simple matrices such as drinking water or uncomplicated industrial waste steams for trace metal determination by ICP-OES or ICP-MS. The loop valve uses a set of know volume loops assisted by compressed air to dispense reagents into the digestion tube prior to the mixing and heating steps.

    With the optional fume hood, DEENA can be placed on a bench top, freeing up valuable fume hood space.

     

    DEENA m

    DEENA m is a compact version of the DEENA with all the regent addition capabilities of the DEENA. With a smaller footprint the DEENA m is a perfect choice for laboratories utilizing small batch routines with limited fume hood space for placement of digestion apparatus. DEENA m with its sample capacity of 30 – 50 mL positions offers enough volume for most laboratories using the system for samples needing a complex digestion routine such as needed for mercury determination.

     

    SmartBlock

    SmartBlock is our version of a manual Teflon®-coated graphite block digestion system which uses a proportional–integral–derivative (PID) controller loop feedback mechanism to precisely control the digestion set temperature.

    • Accommodates standard flat-bottom digestion vials or for a an additional charge, custom order a digest block to fit your choice of digestion vial
    • Has a 60 – 50 mL sample capacity
    • Contains a corrosion-proof external temperature probe
    • Optional hood

     

    ERICA

    ERICA is an automated reagent delivery system that precisely automates the handling of hazardous chemicals where the customer has the option to choose a 21 – 50 mL, 40 – 20 mL, 60 – 14 mL or 90 – 8 mL position standard Bel-Art Scienceware® test tube racks for a truly customized laboratory reagent delivery process.

    • Simplified sample preparation process
    • Labor savings; feeing up valuable time for other laboratory activities
    • Increased laboratory productivity
    • Increased precision of reagent additions

    ERICA's intuitive software makes navigation a snap. Because the digestion methods are made from easy-to-understand commands, they are completely customizable, allowing ERICA to use its full potential to automate standard EPA digestion methods or any variation of a laboratories digestion procedures. The software will save an unlimited number of methods. Because the report functions keep detailed records of all additions for each sample ERICA is an auditors dream come true. A log can be printed or exported for tracking purposes. For audits, the QC manager will love the fact that the software which drives ERICA keeps detailed calibration information to be printed or exported.

     

    DEENA Syringe Module

    An automated standards accessory, the Syringe Module is capable of accommodating up to six working standards. These Standards may include standards for preparation of check, calibration, and laboratory control standards as well as spikes.

     

    DEENA fume hood

    The DEENA fume hood frees up valuable hood space by allowing the customer to place the DEENA on a standard laboratory bench top workspace. Freeing up laboratory fume hood space is essential for laboratories to function in a dynamic laboratory environment where day to day needs of fume hood may change in scope or volume of space needs.

     

    DEENA Software

    The DEENA SW allows the users of the DEENA to fully automate standard EPA methods or any variation of laboratory methods. The software as the ability to save an unlimited number of methods only limited by free disk space. The report functions of the software keep records of all activity for each sample and a log can be printed or exported for tracking purposes. For audits, the software also keeps detailed calibration information which can be printed or exported.
