In 2008, Labman installed a large formulation system in the UK. A key module in the formulation system was a viscous liquids dispenser. The dispensing system dispenses liquids from standard 30ml disposable syringes. The carousel of syringes is automatically indexed above the sample container and balance. Liquids are gravimetrically dispensed using parameters retrieved from a database of known liquids. The system can dispense from around 5-10ul (1 drop) to 30ml (1 syringe). A typical dispense of around 100ul requires 90 seconds to complete but varies with liquid viscosity. The system automatically caps and de caps syringes to prevent drying of sample in the tip of the syringe.
