Custom project

Automated liquid extraction system

A simple-to-use, automated liquid extraction system for preparing blood and urine samples for analysis
Labman custom system: Automated liquid extraction system

Key features

ChillingChilled well to maintain a constant temperature of samples
AliquotingTransferring prepared samples into output tubes ready for analysis
CentrifugationAutomated centrifuging of samples with integrated opening and indexing mechanisms for fully automated loading
AgitationAutomated agitation of 6 vials at a time in a Labman vortexer with user selected speed and time parameters
DispensingAutomated dispensing of multiple solvents and reagents
CappingAutomated removal and replacing of several sizes of caps
PipettingUse of disposable 1ml and 5ml pipettes to transfer samples


This custom automated system places a tube of blood or urine into one of the capper stations, where the cap is removed ready for fluid transfer. A second empty tube is placed by the system into a second capper unit. A disposable pipette is loaded automatically based on sample transfer size and blood or urine is transferred from the full sample to the empty tube; the pipette is then ejected into a waste chute. The new sample tube is then transferred to the dispense station where one or more of 4 Tecan syringe units dispenses a user specified amount of solvent or reagent to the sample. The sample then has the cap replaced before being loaded to the Vortexer station where it is agitated for a specified amount of time. Once mixed the sample is then spun in the centrifuge at 9000rpm for a user-specified amount of time before being placed into an output rack. All aspirating and dispensing is performed volumetrically and all analysis of the sample is carried out once they leave the system.
