Dionex has entered into an agreement with Caliper Life Sciences to purchase Caliper's AutoTrace line of products. The AutoTrace SPE workstation automates the extraction of large volume aqueous samples prior to analysis. According to the company, it is a globally established platform with approved methods and applications such as the US EPA 500 and 600 series for environmental testing of drinking water.

Discussing this agreement, Dr Lukas Braunschweiler, the company's CEO and president said, "The addition of the AutoTrace product line is an important step in our strategy to focus on sample preparation in the water industry and to provide sensitive and robust IC and HPLC methods for environmental analysis. Together with our ASE Accelerated Solvent Extraction technology, AutoTrace will enable us to better respond to our customers' needs in tracing minute amounts of contaminants in critical liquid samples."
