By implementing automation, a laboratory can instantly increase throughput, improve accuracy, reproducibility, and lab-to-lab consistency.

Sample preparation has historically been a time-consuming challenge in high performance liquid chromatography(HPLC) and gas chromatography (GC) analysis, consisting of up to 60% of total analysis time. Automated platformsare now able to perform sample preparation techniques including solid-phase extraction (SPE) and proteinprecipitation. By implementing automation, a laboratory can instantly increase throughput, improve accuracy,reproducibility, and lab-to-lab consistency.
