My lab runs EPA method 524.3 on drinking water samples. We are looking to buy a new Autosampler and Purge & Trap for our GCMS. We are trying to decide between Teledyne Tekmar (AquaTek autosampler/Lumin P&T) and EST (Centrurion autosampler/Evolution P&T). Both look like very nice systems. Does anyone have experience with either of these? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
We have four of the Centurion/Evolution setups with chilled sample trays for running 524.3 and 8270/624. They have always worked well and if there were any problems the service is top notch. If they can't walk you through a problem on the phone or through email they can normally send someone out very quickly. The only issue I have ever had were normal wear problems that are included in yearly PMs but since we run so many samples we usually wear some items out before that time(we run 600 of the 524 THM samples in a two week period every quarter along with a normal sample load the rest of the time).
The past is there to guide us into the future, not to dwell in.
Excellent to hear! Thank you!
