Abstract:
The use of automated High Output Technologies has expanded from its origins in Biotech and CombiChem into laboratories of many other areas in the chemical industry. New fields like Polymer- and Material Sciences, which strongly affect the Pigment and Coating industry, successfully have implemented High Output Technologies to significantly increase their productivity. For this reason instruments similar to the equipment, which originally has been designed to accelerate the process of Drug Discovery, now commonly also is being is found in Polymer and Material Sciences laboratories where multiple dispensing and mixing of liquids, solids and gases under controlled conditions represents one of the core requirements. Additional requirements to these instruments strongly depend on the particular workflow and are governed by the characteristics of the individual application. Those needs might cover a very broad and complex range of unit operations. For this reason only flexible, highly modular, and scalable equipment has the chance of covering the diverse R&D needs of these industries. The general requirement for increased output & efficiency has boosted the continued evolution of automated laboratory equipment. Using selected examples, from the Pigment and Coating Industry, this presentation will show how a variety of challenging parallel workflows fully have been automated.
