Improvements to the design and operation of a Gilson 215 multiprobe liquid-handling system have resulted in a significant increase in the throughput for flow injection molecular weight characterization of combinatorial chemistry libraries. The rapid injection sequence, and subsequent increased sample throughput, is effected by directing the entire mobile-phase flow through each of the injection loops sequentially while isolating or "dead-ending" the remaining nonactive loops. This mode of operation was accomplished by incorporating column-switching valves prior to and following the set of eight parallel injectors. Analysis rates are achieved without sacrificing the integrity of the flow injection peak profile as baseline resolution is maintained for all samples. Using this system, the total analysis time for a 96-well microtiter plate has been reduced to approximately 5 min.
