THE ADVANTAGES AT A GLANCE

Manual and automated

Significant time savings, low maintenance and very clean are just some of the advantages of the CrossTOX® column. In combination with the FREESTYLE CrossTOX, even direct injection in LC-MS/MS is possible.

Application

Syringe with attached multi-mycotoxin column CrossTOX  | © LCTech GmbH

The column can be used in manual sample processing (e.g. with a syringe).

FREESTYLE CrossTOX® Configuration | © LCTech GmbH

Automated with the robotic system FREESTYLE (filling in a vial).

Or fully automated with direct injection in LC-MS/MS. The column is thus ideal for high-throughput laboratories.
