What is the typical sample throughput with FIA?
Amount of time to process samples using FIA
Lachat offers FIA (Flow Injection Analysis) methods that process up to 120 samples per hour. However, sample throughput is not the only consideration when determining overall productivity of an analyzer. Other important parameters include startup and shutdown times, time spent doing data quality monitoring, method changeover times and troubleshooting. In all cases, FIA has significantly better operating characteristics than SFA (Segmented Flow Analysis).
