SAMPLE REFORMATTING SYSTEM
Chemical purification processes often require a fraction collection step. The collected fractions, in some cases multiple, often need to be split up into different formats and volumes for a wide variation of down stream processing. In 2005, Labman Automation supplied a reformatting system for a company based in the UK with a requirement to purify a compound library containing 5 million samples!
The system, based on a two-armed Tecan RSP loads incoming tubes containing dried fractions into a dissolution unit, re-suspends each fraction with the selected solvent then re-constitutes the dissolved fractions (some multiple) into the required output format.
Capacity for up to 400 incoming fraction tubes
Capacity for up to 576 output tubes
Automatic interpretation from incoming files of the fractions per sample
Software selectable tube formats
5 Selectable solvents
Fully programmable dissolution patterns
Sample barcode tracking
Online needle blockage detection
Solvent level and fume extraction management
