The patent pending motion of ChemThief™ is simulated in this video. This cycle of movement enables ChemThief™ to draw up a liquid, expel a liquid, scoop or core a solid sample without motion and expel a solid sample with motion.
ChemThief™ can pierce a light container to obtain a sample. The video shows the lance opening below the surface of the liquid. Air is expelled from the pipet in the first phase of cycled movement. Next the pipet bulb will expand and draw approximately 2 ml of liquid into ChemThief™.
