Misconception #7: FIA runs at faster rates of analysis

To achieve very high rates of analysis, FIA often sacrifices accuracy and reproducibility. For the most part, customers actually dial back the speed of FIA to get better results, which would be comparable to the Astoria’s typical analysis rates of 45 – 120 samples per hour (NOTE: 30 – 40 samples per hour for methods with in-line Distillation). Also, at the same time, FIA will be using 10 times the amount of reagent!
