Please note: Parabolic Probe is optional on the DXe & DX models

Dual Rinse Station Reduces Carryover

  • DX autosamplers uniquely provide independently pumped dual rinse stations
  • Each station can support a customized rinse solution for optimal rinsing of probe and uptake path
Dual Rinse Station Reduces Carryover

Engineered for Precision and Durability

  • Designed with a Dual X-rail design and a large diameter Z-rail for precise sampling
  • All DX components are constructed using chemically resistant materials for an exceptionally long lifetime
Dual Rinse Station Reduces Carryover

DX Autosamplers are Upgradable

DX autosamplers provide a direct upgrade path to both FAST high throughput and prepFAST autodilution system as laboratory automation needs grow.

Mobile Stations

The mobile station secures and positions the DX autosampler, eliminating the need for an autosampler table (not included with purchase of the autosampler).


  • Convenient - Autosampler, pumps, rinse and waste bottles contained in a single unit
  • Compact - Footprint only slightly larger than autosampler itself, saving valuable lab space and maintaining accessibility to sample racks
  • Attractive - Station eliminates need for separate table
  • Mobile - Locking wheels; Eliminates unnecessary external connections to rinse solution and waste reservoirs; Middle and lower shelves for storage and bottles

ICP and ICPMS sample integrity is maintained with the ESI DX autosampler enclosures. The enclosures can be configured either as a dust cover or ULPA-filtered minienvironment.


  • Protects samples from airborne contamination
  • Exhaust acid fumes to protect the laboratory environment
  • Clear acrylic construction for easy sample viewing
  • Covers only the sample area—the electronics are kept outside the enclosure
  • Three vertical sliding doors provide easy access to sample racks at any time

ULPA Air Filter

The ULPAclean 10 (Ultra-Low Particle Arrester) filter creates a clean, positive pressure environment for samples and standards and prevents airborne contamination. It removes 99.9995% of 0.1 µm or larger particles. The mounting plate is compatible with all DX autosampler enclosures.

Sample Racks & Vials

From 96-well microplates to 100 ml volumetric flasks, ESI offers both standard autosampler racks as well as an extensive variety of specialized racks to accommodate almost any vial, vessel or bottle imaginable for automated sample analysis. DX Series autosamplers offer flexible rack configurations that permit almost any sample size, from micro vials up to 500 mL and larger bottles.

PFA vials are ideal for applications that require the highest purity. Made of ultrapure, ultra-chemically resistant material, these vials are an excellent choice for high purity, semiconductor and micro samples. PVDF sample vials are a lower cost alternative to our high-performance PFA vials. These high-tensile-strength, fluoropolymer vials can replace more expensive PFA vials in many applications. Non-PFA sample vessels manufactured from polymer plastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene, and polystyrene, are suitable for general purpose analytical applications.
