The FREESTYLE system is probably the most adaptable robotic equipment for sample preparation on the market. With this almost universally applicable system range, numerous processing steps can be automated.
As an example automation suits ideally in the areas of food, animal feed, environmental, and forensics analysis conducted in pharmaceutical laboratories or other fields of application.
The FREESTYLE system takes on daily routine tasks in the laboratory, but also offers users a unique opportunity to combine specific working steps that were previously carried out individually.
Day and night and even over the weekend.
The FREESTYLE modules can be individually combined and retrofitted. The user obtains the opportunity to adapt the FREESTYLE to the changing requirements of his everyday work, and the system can be upgraded to cater for newly required functions at any time.
If different modules are installed, e.g. the SPE module together with the EVAporation module, these functions can be used individually or in combination. The required function is determined exclusively through method selection in the software.
Methods are saved, and can be called up at any time or mixed in sample lists. There is no need for any mechanical changes or conversions.
The FREESTYLE BASIC consists of a xyz-robot including injection pump, sample loop, solvent distribution and double-walled needle.

The FREESTYLE system can be equipped with the necessary modules suitable for the intended purpose.
Sample clean-up via GPC (gel permeation chromatography) is used for all samples in the analysis of residues and contaminants and is therefore universally applicable.
Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) for oil removal (clean-up) in samples containing more than 3% oil.
The FREESTYLE GPC is a fully automated chromatographic sample preparation system, that is used for example for clean-up of food, feed and environmental samples. It complies in all areas with the requirements of general methods, e.g. L 00.00-34, EPA 3640A.
The FREESTYLE system with EVAporation module concentrates all types of organic solvents around the clock to a precise end volume between 5.0 mL and 0.2 mL, optional with solvent exchange. The end volume can be selected individually for each sample.
The FREESTYLE SPE has unique possibilities for sample preparation using solid phase extraction (SPE). Each manual SPE method which has already proven of value in the laboratory can be automated in a quick and easy manner. The application fields are wide: from mycotoxin and environmental analysis up to forensic applications and samples of doping control.

HPLC Direct Injection Module
For direct injection to LC systems. The sample preparation is done via the SPE module (Solid Phase Extraction), via the SPE module with online EVAporation or via the GPC module (Gel Permeation Chromatography) and the EVAporation module. The HPLC Direct Injection module can also be used after a solvent exchange with the EVAporation module.
FREESTYLE ThermELUTE™ allows complete automation of sample preparation and analysis of Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2 and M1 as well as Ochratoxin A and Zearalenone in all regulated matrices.
Sample Preparation of water samples with a volume of 1 L up to 10 L
In water analysis large-volume or particulate-laden samples often have to be handled. The robotic system FREESTYLE XANA has been specifically developed for sample preparation of large-volume water samples, for example of drinking water, raw water or river water.
With a positive pressure of up to 4 bar during loading, samples with suspended matter in many cases can also be pushed through the SPE columns. Without the need for supervision, the system processes samples reliably over 24 hours and 7 days / week through all stages beginning with the raw sample up to filling into GC vials.
