System Overview.

In 2007, Labman installed a precipitate detecting system in Siena, Italy. The system is used to analyse the amount of precipitate in liquid samples. Blocks of 96 Micronic blocks are loaded onto one of six vortexing mixers (0-2500 rpm). The sample undergoes a specified regime of agitation and settling before being loaded into a transmission scanning device. The transmission scanner uses a 470nm light source to assess how the transmission through the sample varies with height. A software algorithm is implemented to automatically determine the amount of precipitate. All vials are tracked using 2D barcodes allowing output transmission data to be outputted to a LIMS system.
