Overview

This system is designed to automate the use of a Mettler Toledo Quantos Powder Dosing unit for the purpose of filling 2mL GC vials with powder. Vials and dosing heads are loaded by the user and are automatically loaded into the Quantos for gravimetric dispensing before data is uploaded to the user being returned to their respective racks. The Quantos can also be used independently from SAQS by manually loading dosing heads and vials and operating the Quantos with the touchpad. The custom software has been designed to give the user full control of their workflow. With the integration of a live pause function, users can change the running order of dispenses, and add new ones at the front of the queue on the fly. The safety enclosure which encapsulates the system ensures users are never put into harm’s way. The system’s heavy duty castors and relatively small footprint allow it to easily be maneuvered in and out of position in the lab.

“As a service/maintenance engineer myself, I know what I should expect and you guys go above and beyond my expectations. This gives me a sense of security, knowing when a problem occurs and I get stuck, I can contact you immediately. With great team work and communication a solution is never far away. Our uptimes remain high and is a bonus to our business.”
