Large Scale High Throughput Formulation System

Producing 100 pots a day and running for 24 hours a day, this high throughput system creates formulations that typically contain six to seven powders, six viscous liquids and three low viscosity liquids. All additions of materials are performed gravimetrically and measured to 0.1mg.

Automated Sample Preparation

Automated Sample Preparation System

This system prepares samples ready for injection into an HPLC/MS analyser. Septum sealed tubes have liquid preservative and an inert gas injected into them. Tubes are tare weighed before various samples are dispensed into them and then reweighed to ascertain the amount of sample added.

Liquids Formulation System

A high throughput viscous liquids dispensing system capable of preparing 700 formulations every 24 hours, each formulation typically having five additions. The system dispenses liquids with viscosities up to 80000cps.

Plant Grinding and Preparation System

Plant Grinding and Preparation System

Three units: a cryogenic biomass grinding and dispensing system; a room temperature biomass grinding and dispensing system; and a sample extraction system.

Liquid/Liquid Extraction System

Liquid/Liquid Extraction System

A large, swept volume, three armed, XYZ gantry robot for digestion and liquid/liquid extractions. This robot works day and night putting samples through various solvent extraction and heating regimes. Working on a specially designed continuous flow principle, each sample has an identical time in each phase of the process greatly improving sample to sample reproducibility.
