Calculating the Sample Uptake Rate for iCAP 6000 Series, 7200 and PRO


How to caclulate the sample uptake rate on an iCAP 6000 series, iCAP 7200, or iCAP PRO


iCAP 6200

iCAP 6300

iCAP 6500

iCAP 7200



To calculate the uptake rate, click on the link below, or copy and paste the link into a web browser:

1) Select "Thermo iCAP 6000 Series" from the dropdown menu in Step 1: Select pump configuration

2) Select the appropriate pump tubing from the drop down menu in Step 2: Select pump tubing.

3) Enter the pump speed used in the LabBook in Qtegra or Method in iTEVA in the Pump speed field

4) Click update calculation.

5) This will display the sample uptake rate in uL/min. For example, using the default orange/yellow sample tubing with pump speed of 40rpm will yield an uptake rate of 371 uL/min

NOTE: If you have implemented online internal standard dilution, you will need to calculated the uptake rate for both the Sample and Internal Standard lines and then add these two individual rates together to get the total volume being delivered to the nebulizer
