Merlin MicroShot

Manual Sample Injector for Gas Chromatography
Improve your manual syringe results. The Merlin MicroShot Injector makes manual syringe injections convenient and reproducible using readily available chromatography syringes. The unique trigger mechanism makes each injection automatic when the needle is inserted into the injection port. The plunger displacement is fixed for precise volume delivery confirming reproducibility.  The Merlin MicroShot uses syringes with removable or fixed and 23 or 26 gauge needles with a ball-end plunger detail.


Features and Benefits:
  • Improves manual injection reproducibility.
  • Easy manipulation of plunger to rinse and fill syringe.
  • Protects syringe plunger.
  • Injection is a simple motion.
  • Sample discharged automatically by spring-driven plunger slide.
  • Injection volume controlled by a fixed, calibrated volume rod.
  • Compatible with a variety of sample containers.

Detailed Description:

The Merlin MicroShot injector enables convenient and repeatable manual injections for gas chromatography. When the injector is filled and armed, pushing the syringe needle into the injection port triggers the sample injection, reducing the injection process to a simple motion. The sample volume is controlled by a calibrated volume rod. A spring driven plunger slide holds and supports the syringe plunger, making it easy to rinse and fill the syringe without damaging the plunger. The injector is available in 5 fixed sizes which deliver sample volumes from 0.1 to 2.0 microliters when used with the appropriate 10-uL syringe.

The Merlin MicroShot provides several advantages for manual injection. It improves injection precision by eliminating the task of carefully adjusting each sample volume by eye. It provides a convenient holder for the syringe and allows easy manipulation of the syringe plunger, which protects these delicate parts. Because the injection is reduced to a simple motion it is easier to make rapid injections which minimize needle residence time in the injection port, which can minimize potential sample discrimination. It provides for convenient sampling from a wide variety of sample containers, eliminating the necessity of processing samples into vials specifically for autosamplers.
