Recognizing a need for an improved mixer/reactor, the continuously variable volume reactor (CVVR) was developed to address the need for remote unattended FIA manifold operation and the issue of manifold optimization. Development of the CVVR allows fully automated FIA analysis, and through its design allows the volume of the mixing coil to be changed dynamically as the sample bolus travels through the mixing coil to the detector. This is the first time this approach has been demonstrated in the literature.
