Labman’s high throughput system to perform colour analysis on samples was installed in the UK in 2006. The system has capacity to measure 700 samples in one unattended run. For this application Labman integrated the model of spectrophotometer which was already validated and engrossed in the customers Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). The system performs automatic periodic calibrations using black and white tiles. Data is captured automatically and output files created for seamless integration with a LIMS system.
