ConFlo IV

Universal Continuous Flow Interface

Expand applications and automation of the stable isotope laboratory with the Thermo Scientific™ ConFlo IV universal continuous flow interface. The ConFlo IV system enables attachment of sample preparation devices that dramatically expand the range of experiments that can be conducted by stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS). It includes intelligent connection to all necessary reference gases, automatic sample-size recognition, sample and reference signal matching, and self-diagnosis.


Manage Multiple Devices

  • Optimizes the utilization of the IRMS by handling the switch between sample preparation devices, including activation and deactivation, as well as change of reference gases
  • Sample preparation devices can be regenerated and loaded while others are in operation
  • Switching between applications can take place at any time, without operator assistance
  • System parameters sensitive to data quality can be automatically checked within all sample sequences

Maximize Performance

  • Use of reference gases for standardization, instead of reference bulk material, reduces the operational costs by almost 50%, while increasing the sample throughput by almost 50%
  • Automated adjustment of the intensities of the reference gas pulses equalize conditions for sample and reference gases, improving precision and reliability
  • Helium auto-dilution can compensate for natural variability and ionization efficiencies of C/N/S and H/O

Control Everything Through a Single Interface

  • Multiple preparation and inlet devices can operate within the same batch of sequences with the ConFlo IV Universal Interface, allowing continuous and unattended sample analysis
  • Additional samples can be uploaded and appended to the batch of sequences without any interruption of the actual data acquisition
  • More samples can be added to the active preparation device or a completely new application can be set up on a separate device and appended, waiting for completion of the current analyses

ConFlo IV Dimensions (W x D x H): 470 x 180 x 315mm (18.5 x 7.08 x 12.4 in.)
