Automated Liquid-Liquid Extraction (LLE) Systems


The VERSA automated Liquid Liquid Extraction (LLE) system, also known as an automated solvent extractor or liquid-liquid extractor, offers the most flexibility and throughput among all other liquid handlers, by utilizing our innovative modules:

  • Conductive Liquid Level Sensing – detects phase boundary and ensures precision, reproducibility, and minimal dead volume
  • ReagentDrop Bulk Dispensing Module – dispenses solvents (including organic solvents) and reagents without using tips, prevents dripping of volatile solvents
  • On-deck Tube/Plate Shaker – for mixing and online reconstitution
  • Heater Assisted Nitrogen Dryer – enables a complete walk-away solution for liquid-liquid extractions
  • Versatile Labware – adaptors available for virtually any shape and size (microcentrifuge tubes, test tubes, vials, etc.)

The VERSA Automated Solvent Extraction systems are highly scalable for different throughput and budget requirements. These instruments can automate a number of applications, including extractions of drugs-of-abuse and other metabolites of interest from bodily fluids, as well as biomolecules of interest from biological matrices (such as lipids and proteins). Please contact us for additional information and applications.
