Automated Solid Phase Extraction of Research Samples
An Australian University Research Laboratory was wishing to manufacture an automated system to allow preparation of medical samples using the method of Solid Phase Extraction.
To measure this, a linear sampling device which can hold up 10 solid-phase extraction cartridges was built. A computer was used to specify which cartridge to use and the plate moved into the correct position (stepper motors are used for all movements). To connect a cartridge, one connector moves downwards from the top, then the other one comes in from the bottom.
