Multitasker for Bioanalysis, Metabolomics & Clinical Research

Multitasker for Bioanalysis, Metabolomics & Clinical Research

The Multitasker LC Autosampler, with built-in sample preparation, fully automates your LC-MS/MS workflows

The Multitasker from Zivak automates a wide range of metabolomics, clinical & bioanalytical workflows.

These systems are capable of sampling from primary container and working with urine, plasma, serum, whole blood and cerebrospinal fluid with minimal pre-treatment. The multitasker features liquid-level sensing and can automate all routine steps in LC-MS/MS sample preparation including inverting tubes, centrifugation, vortexing, evaporation, and online solid-phase extraction with virtually any manufacturer’s LC-MS/MS to turn your instrument into a walk-up/walk-away analyser.

Automating your bioanalysis workflows brings many benefits to clinical research and pharmaceutical bioanalysis including:

  • improved data quality
  • improved productivity – eliminates manual transfer of plates from offline automation platforms to your LC-MS/MS
  • ‘plug-and-play’ outsourcing of sponsor developed methods with minimal revalidation
  • scalable platform technology to support clinical trails from Phase I through Phase III
  • sustainable tip-free, minimum intermediate consumable design reduces your laboratory’s single-use plastic use – cost and environmental savings!
  • automation brings quality-by-design to your laboratory making the transition from R&D to clinical practice – a key enabling technology in translational medicine
