Labman has delivered an automated formulation system to a UK based industry leader in order to streamline their development of new products and ingredients. The system allows their scientists to rapidly build formulations consisting of many steps in any combination required. Formulations can consists of any combination of liquid dispenses, powder additions, water dispenses, mixing using multiple topologies, pH measurement and automated adjustment, viscosity measurement and automated adjustment, delays, timers and temperature control.

This system uses new and leading technologies to deliver a robust platform that can be used in very flexible ways by its operators. Its flexibility allows it to run in ways that best optimise the samples being formulated or tested. The system can be used to formulate new raw ingredients that can be used as raw materials additions, to make full or partial formulations, or to measure existing samples for categorisation and calibration.
