Automation Solutions for Analytical Measurements
Concepts and Applications
1. Edition September 2017
XII, 260 Pages, Hardcover
Practical Approach Book
This systematic overview provides access to all relevant and universally applicable automation concepts for chemical analysis. Various robot types and their roles in automation systems are thoroughly reviewed.
The first book dedicated specifically to automated sample preparation and analytical measurements, this timely and systematic overview not only covers biological applications, but also environmental measuring technology, drug discovery, and quality assurance.
Following a critical review of realized automation solutions in biological sciences, the book goes on to discuss special requirements for comparable systems for analytical applications, taking different concepts into consideration and with examples chosen to illustrate the scope and limitations of each technique.
