Zinsser Analytic developed a liquid handling system which is used for malt analysis in the beer production to test certain criteria of the harvested barley. This way breweries make sure the beer doesn’t change its taste and always keeps the same level of alcohol.
This analysis process is an essential part of brewing, however is very time and labor consuming when done manually. For this reason Carlsberg was looking for a solution that could automate the entire workflow and hence save time and cost.
The hardware was designed for handling 48 samples in one run, including heating intervals, the filtration step and sample taking.
Zinsser Analytic's system automated the whole process from extraction and filtration to pipetting and further analysis preparation. As an outcome the automated solutions did not only release the laboratory staff from tedious work but also increased the analysis output with 200 prepared samples within 8h.
With the broad variety of devices included in the modules we are able to automate almost every process.
Special Gripper and Arm Tools:
Our software solution has a simple to use interface making it easy for your staff to configurate or change process steps by themselves. Every process step is designed modularly to help to set up a variety of individual processes depending on different powders, chemicals and solvents. This way you can easily set up the sample preparation process according to your requirements. Detailed Information about Zinsser Analytic's software solution are available in a separate note.
Drag and drop the needed methods to the desired positions of the worklist.
For pipetting steps, the Pipetting-Editor is opened for the definition of racks and number of pipetting steps. Every filled position is indicated blue and the selected positions are highlighted green.
Input the desired time or anything the method requires, while you are defining the process. Each sample is tracked throughout the whole process, which enables easy and efficient workflow adaptions.
