The FIA experiments were executed by injected defined volumes of ammonium solutions directly into the alkaline carrier stream by means of a syringe with a hypodermic needle. concentrations, and the other one was sodium hydroxide, the two streams being merged immediately prior to the measuring cell. The whole setup is depicted in Figure 1, where the white cylinder at the left is the air-gap sensor. However, to our dismay the sensor appeared to respond very slowly to changing concentrations. One day we lost patience and therefore decided to take a different approach, that is, merely to pump the sodium hydroxide stream and then to inject — by puncturing the wall of the base carrying tube, using a syringe with a needle — identical and precisely metered volumes of different concentrations of ammonium chloride.

Principle of bead injection. (a) Metered volume of bead suspension is injected into the system and captured within the flow channel. (b) Solution of target analyte is injected and transported towards microcolumn of captured beads. (c) Analyte molecules react with ligands immobilized on bead surfaces. (d) Reaction product is either detected on bead surfaced or eluted to be detected downstream. (e) Beads are discarded. Adapted from Ref.
