PAL RTC™

  • The PAL RTC with Robotic Tool Change is the logical (r)evolution of the successful PAL-xt product line. Sample prep for chromatography is no longer the bottleneck – automate your sample prep and sample injection - all on the PAL RTC
  • The robotic change of tools enables unattended 24/7 operation, even for multistep workflows and thereby greatly increases the productivity of labs. At the same time process safety is optimized since all operations become traceable
  • Automation is the way to increase productivity and (process) safety in the laboratory. Transferring repetitive or dangerous manual tasks to a robot improves safety. The possibility to run the instrument 24h/day increases throughput, especially for long sample preparations
  • The PAL RTC was developed to maximize productivity in analytical and clinical labs. Robotic Tool Change (RTC) brings sample preparation to a higher level. Every process requires a number of different tools for best performance, e.g. a 10µL syringe for the accurate addition of small volumes followed by the dilution with a 1mL syringe. Robotic Tool Change allows to switch between different tools automatically


  • PAL RSI™

  • The PAL RSI is the robust workhorse for analytical labs. It is the cost effective solution for labs in need of robustness and uncompromising performance
  • Scientists and technicians work under time pressure and often with a tremendous workload. The reliability of hardware and software should not be something the user has to worry about. Reliability is just expected from every tool
  • That is exactly what the PAL RSI is designed for. It is a tool that you can rely on. More than 40.000 PAL systems worldwide are proof of this. Every PAL RSI leaving our factory has passed a thorough robustness test
  • The PAL RSI is a flexible tool. Its open and modular architecture makes it the most versatile system on the market. Tools can be exchanged readily within minutes
  • PAL customers working with GC love the possibility to use liquid, headspace or SPME sampling on the same system. LC customers appreciate the PAL because of its huge sample capacity, the range of syringes and valves available
  • The PAL RSI is a safe investment: if your requirements grow additions of modules or even an upgrade to the full RTC functionality are possible at any time and give access to complete workflow automation

  • Very high resolution and selectivity in both full-scan MS and MSn modes enhance relative quantification results from stable isotope labeling or isobaric mass tagging experiments


  • PAL LSI™

    Reproducible results thanks to optimized injection handling

  • Only perfect injection handling gives reproducible results. The PAL LSI is designed for the precise and accurate handling of liquid samples of up to 100 μL in volume. In combination with the PAL Sample Control software all parameters of aspirating and dispensing of liquid samples can be fully controlled. This is crucial for perfect injections. A range of syringes from 1.2 μL to 100 μL is available. In the example highlighted above an aliquot of an internal standard is sandwiched between transport solvent and the sample. Air gaps in between the liquids preclude mixing of the different liquids. The accurate control of these steps is the basis of reproducible methods

  • Pick and place

  • The PAL LSI is a robot that can reach any three dimensional position within its working space and is ideally suited to pick and place objects like vials. It can inject from several sample containers into different detectors or transport vials from a tray to a temperature controlled stack
