  • The electronics and moving parts are placed above the tubes
     – No damage due to spilling
     – Can be placed in a cold bath or any other thermo-stabilized container

  • Solvent resistant construction
  • Pause (from 0 to 999.9 min and 1 to 9999 min) or rinsing can be programmed between fractions
  • Up to 20 fractions simultaneously; multi-channel operation (optional)

Customization possibilities of OMNICOLL fraction collector and sampler

Types of recipients:

OMNICOLL fraction collector can handle nearly all kinds of sampling tubes and laboratory sampling racks or recipients (drops to liters) available on the market.

  • Micro titre plates, vials, titer tubes, test tubes, Nalgene lab bottles, larger volume bottles, beakers, flasks, etc. can be used with the fraction collector.
  • No special sampling tubes or test tube racks are needed to collect the fractions.

Single stream or multi-stream collection:

  • Single stream
  • Simultaneous multi-stream fractions of up to 20
OMNICOLL single channel collector   OMNICOLL 4-stream fraction collection   OMNICOLL 6-channel fraction collector
OMNICOLL single channel fraction collection with LAMBDA peristaltic pump   OMNICOLL multi-stream for 4 free flowing streams in 50 ml Nalgene plastic tubes for lab   OMNICOLL 6-channel with third-party multichannel pump on 96-well plates

Example configurations of single channel and multichannel fraction collector could be viewed at www.fractioncollector.info/multi-stream-fraction-collection/ 

Multichannel configuration with adjustable tube guides Example of customized multi-stream fraction collector LAMBDA OMNICOLL

Highly flexible control:

  • Fraction collection or liquid sampling based on volume / time / drop count / controlled by an external signal.
  • Easy to program and handle.
  • Unlimited number of fraction collection

Easy extension of tube capacity by additional supports:

The tube capacity of the LAMBDA OMNICOLL fraction collector and sampler can easily be increased by adding rack supports. Virtually any number of such capacity extensions can be added.

Extended capacity of 12-channel collector with 250 ml bottles: 2 times (= 72 fractions) Extended 30 mm tube rack capacity of single channel fraction collector: 3 times (= 288 fractions)
 OMNICOLL 12-channel collector with 2 additional supports to collect 72 fractions in 250 ml bottles OMNICOLL single channel fraction collector 3 times extended, for 288 fractions on 30 mm tube racks

 

Features of the OMNICOLL fraction collector

  • The only fraction collector which can be easily programmed for any rack or recipients of your choice
  • All electronic and mechanical components have been miniaturised and placed in one moving part, which is placed above the fractions. Therefore, there is no danger of spilling.
  • The lower part of the fraction collector can be placed into a cold bath, ice bath or any other thermo-stabilized container.
  • Modern microprocessor controlled system using several optical sensors allows for easy programming of the tube positions.
  • Fraction collection according to time or volume
  • Fraction collection in lines or meander like (zigzag)
  • pause (from 0.1 to 999.9 min and 1 to 9999 min) can be programmed between fractions. Thus, the OMNICOLL fraction collector can be used for taking (single or multiple) samples, e.g. during fermentation processes, cell cultures and other biological or chemical processes.
  • The pause function can be used also for an automatic start-up of the fraction collection.
  • Washing of the tubing (line washing) between samples is possible, since the number of fractions in a series can be chosen. 
  • Auto-stop function switches off the fraction collector and the fractionation after a selected rack or at the end of the range
  • Pump flow stop function avoids spilling between two consecutive fractions.
  • Only the liquid transferring tubing is moved instead of the tubes, this requires much less energy and allows the fraction collector to be miniaturized. Additionally, the tubes are easily accessible from all sides.
  • The lower part of the fraction collector can be used for carrying or storage of fractions. A new plastic fixing mat keeps the racks or recipients in position.
  • Several lower parts can be combined to increase the fraction collecting capacity of the fraction collector.
  • Highest user safety has been attained by supplying the OMNICOLL fraction collector with a low voltage plug-in power supply. This allows also an easy field application of the fraction collector (battery operation possible).
  • Solid metal construction makes the OMNICOLL fraction collector insensitive to solvents.
  • Can be easily disassembled and requires only little storage space
  • Low-maintenance construction 
  • Competitive price 
  • Remote control allows sampling after reception of an external signal (such as an alarm). In this way, it is possible to obtain important samples during long processes running even during the absence of a supervisor.
  • Drop counter, inert valve, RS-232 interface, TTL signal based collection and other accessories are available as an option

Ke zkoumání mobilizace Tc v podmínkách plně nasyceného proudění mořské vody byl použit sběrač frakcí LAMBDA OMNICOLL pro sběr eluce ve frakcích o objemu 1.2 - 3.6 ml z obalové kolony kontaminovaných sedimentů

Can OMNICOLL replace the LKB Superfrac fraction collector (GE HealthCare) which is no longer available?
Yes, OMNICOLL fraction collector and sampler could replace Superfrac (also fraction collector Frac-950, Frac-920).


Do you also sell different heads to the collector that would allow collection into multiple racks at once?
We have a special customization for collecting fractions into multiple racks at once i.e. multi-stream configuration.


Do you have experience with controlling Ismatec IPC multichannel peristaltic pump with OMNICOLL?
LAMBDA offers a customized remote control cable for Ismatec multichannel pump for the analog communication between OMNICOLL and pump.


Should I be able to integrate any peristaltic pump with your LAMBDA OMNICOLL fraction collector?
You can use any peristaltic pump with the LAMBDA OMNICOLL fraction collector.
The OMNICOLL fraction collector provides a signal (~ 9 V) which is used by the communication module (art. no. 6911) to switch the pump off while moving from one fraction position to the other and at the end of the run. Therefore, there is no spilling between fractions.
Additionally, while using the OMNICOLL fraction collector with LAMBDA PERISTALTIC PUMP, the fraction collector can take fractions volumetrically by counting the pump impulsions (count mode). Therefore, each fraction will have the same impulsion number and, thus, have the same volume.


What is the top flow rate that the fraction collector unit can handle?
Our OMNICOLL Fraction Collector and Sampler is a flexible system and it adapts to your desired application. It is not limited by the feed rate and the number of samples being collected.
Because, the feed flow rate depends on the pressure difference and the diameter of the tubing used. You can choose the tubing and diameter as per your requirement.
