AutoDesorb Notes for SIS Dealers


Required Components for a System

When taking an order for a thermal desorption system, the following items are required.  If they are not on your order we will be contacting you or your customer to remind you  that they should be ordered in order for the customer to make efficient use of the AutoDesorb System.

Part Number Description
786000 AutoDesorb System, Model 2000
786030 Accessory Kit, Tubes, Needles, Seals  
786100 Installation and Training  


or 786210

Agilent 6890 Installation Kit

Agilent 5890 Series II Installation Kit

976000 2" Cryo Trap

or 976020

CO2 Valve Kit for Cryo Trap

LN2 Valve Kit for Cryo Trap

Highly Recommended Accessories

A Conditioning Oven is highly recommended for the AutoDesorb System.  We always recommend that the customer purchase a conditioning oven with their system.  This is needed in order to bake out or condition the desorption tubes and needles to avoid any chance of contaminated samples or cross contamination of needles.  Due to the volume of samples the AutoDesorb system processes, we usually recommend the 24 tube oven, but if the budget is tight then we recommend the 6 tube oven.

Part Number Description
781056 24 Tube Conditioning System
781051A 6 Tube Conditioning System

Optional Operational Accessories (Consumable Parts)

The following is a list of standard replacement or operating accessories.  The accessory kit listed above has enough supplies to get the customer started, but they will probably need additional desorption tubes, needles and seals as their volume of samples for analysis increases. Note that there are many additional accessories listed in our catalog.
