You are productive
solving your
chromatography challenges
A step ahead
in automated sampling
The quality of gas chromatography results depends on many factors – the stability of the gas
chromatograph, the ruggedness and sensitivity of the detector, and the skill of the chemist in
executing the proper sample workflow. Within this process, sample preparation and introduction
provide the foundation for repeatability and reliability that are essential for quality data.
The Thermo Scientific TriPlus RSH autosampler utilizes robotic sample handling to expand
automated capabilities beyond liquid, headspace and solid-phase microextraction (SPME)
injections to advanced sample handling cycles. Your results benefit from improved precision and
reproducibility, while your laboratory gains unique advantages from the system’s unattended
operations and sample handling flexibility.

Experience Seamless Operation with the
Innovative Automatic Syringe Exchanger
In the modern laboratory, basic sample handling tasks, including standard
or stock sample dilutions, internal standard addition and derivatization,
require manual pipetting of precise amounts of products before any dilution
or chemical reaction occurs. To accurately automate all of these steps, the
TriPlus RSH™ autosampler offers a new and innovative ATC (Automatic
Tool Change) capability.
The ATC feature enables the user to set up a sequence using up to six
different syringes, automatically loaded by the autosampler to accurately
perform dilutions, calibrations, and sample injections. The ability to exchange
syringes for different tasks enables high precision sample-handling in a
single, unattended sequence prior to automated sample injection.

tool change capability
5 microliters of
a liquid sample in
a 300 microliter vial
Developed for increased analytical flexibility and lab productivity, this unique
capability automates complex sample preparation and injection workflows,
thus eliminating human error. Combination of these features within one single
unit, integrated on GC and GC-MS systems, saves precious lab space.
Expand Unattended Operations and Productivity with
Unprecedented Sample Capacity
Unequivocal lab throughput is attainable by using the largest sample
capacity available for an autosampler. A maximum of 972, 2 mL vials
combined with multiple 100 mL wash/waste bottles, on the TriPlus RSH
autosampler, enable week-end long unattended operations – a goal not
attainable with most other sampling systems currently on the market.
Sequences can be developed in which one autosampler serves multiple
GC systems, further expanding lab productivity. This feature enables the
powerful combination of screening on a single GC or GC-MS system
while simultaneously performing positive confirmation/quantitation on
another GC-MS or GC-MS/MS system.
Further productivity is achieved by utilizing various injection modes that
match techniques to sample types. Liquid, Headspace and SPME injections
can all be used within a single sequence, running unattended with the use
of the ATC capability, switching the syringe tool automatically as needed.

Achieve the best results
for your sample type
The TriPlus RSH robotic sample handling system offers liquid, headspace, and solid phase
microextraction – capabilities you expect as being a standard part of a multi-axis autosampler.
In these modes, the TriPlus RSH autosampler delivers the precision you demand for achieving
exceptional results.
Flexible Liquid Sampling
and Injection
Simple and Reliable
Headspace Injection
Solvent-free Sample
Preparation with SPME
The TriPlus RSH autosampler offers optimized
liquid injection modes to support a wide range of
sample types, inlets, and techniques for syringe
filling. Parameters like pull-up strokes, viscosity
delay, washing cycles, and needle depths can all
be programmed, thus achieving high precision
sampling. Additionally, samples can be withdrawn
into the syringe using one of the following
methods:
Static headspace is a straight forward method
for volatile analysis. Eliminating the need for a
transfer line and/or sample loop, the TriPlus
RSH autosampler uses a high temperature
resistant gas-tight syringe for direct headspace
injection. Overlapping sample incubation
capability offers higher productivity. Every
sample is ready for injection based on the GC
cycle time. The optional Multiple Headspace
Extraction (MHE) mode enables accurate
quantification of volatiles in a solid or samples
with interfering matrices.
The TriPlus RSH autosampler automates SPME
sample preparation. Optimum performance is
achieved through precise control of all steps,
from fiber preconditioning, to adsorption and
desorption. Samples can be heated and
shaken to reduce analysis times. Compounds
of interest are extracted from liquid or headspace phases by simply setting the depth of
needle penetration into the vials. A great
productivity boost is delivered by the fiber
conditioning station, which flushes and heats
fibers after the injection.

on-column methods are fully
optimized to guarantee the highest
quality results. Depending on the
sample type, a new fast cold needle
injection with cycle times lower than
100 ms is also available.

temperature control for accurate sampling of very
volatile solvents, unstable compounds, or extremely
viscous samples.
Enhanced Sensitivity for Headspace Analysis
Sample enrichment is a valuable tool for the analysis
of trace levels of volatile organics in difficult matrices
with the use of headspace injections. Combining the
TriPlus RSH autosampler capability of handling
multiple sequential headspace injections with a
cryogenic GC option, sensitivity is greatly enhanced
as a larger sample volume can be efficiently
analyzed. This capability is ideal for the simplification
of demanding environmental analyses.

The convenient dual-laser barcode reader is capable of reading vertical
1-D barcode labels on 2,10 and 20 mL vials. The dual-scanner capability
allows the TriPlus RSH autosampler to read vial barcodes, regardless of
their position in the vial, making it easier to build sequences and ensure
complete sample traceability.

operations run smoothly with integrated TriPlus RSH autosampler controls
on Thermo Scientific Xcalibur and TraceFinder software.
Three basic setup screens (available on all Thermo Scientific software
platforms), easily guide the setting of TriPlus RSH parameters for Liquid,
Headspace and SPME methods. Despite the large number of configurations
and options offered within the basic injection modes, instrument setup
and methods are created quickly with just a few mouse clicks. Sample
preparation cycles are available as add-ons through pre-compiled
sequences with application descriptions.
Graphic-assisted flexible
instrument programmability
for easy start-up and
workflow operations.
Methods and sequences can be developed and run locally or remotely
through the use of a convenient network card. A virtual terminal, fully
integrated within the same software control, completely mimics the physical
handheld controller and enables easier installation and initial setup.
Convenient Handheld Option for Local Control
The handheld controller is the ideal solution for displaying instrument status and
facilitating setup and maintenance. Laboratories equipped with multiple TriPlus RSH
autosamplers will also benefit from the operational flexibility provided by
this controlling tool, using a single handheld device to set up all
TriPlus RSH autosamplers in the lab.
