THE ITALIAN GROUP, NATURA, A NATIONAL LEADER IN ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL, HAS SELECTED CHEMSPEED TECHNOLOGIES’ FLEX POWDERDOSE AUTOMATED WORKSTATION TO ACCELERATE AND ENHANCE PRECISE SOIL SAMPLE PREPARATION AND CORRESPONDING CONTAMINATION ANALYSIS
September 2018 – Casoria (NA), Italy
“The Italian Group Natura has selected Chemspeed Technologies in order to allow precise and repeatable dispensing of soil with different origins. The overarching goal of this project is to accelerate soil contamination analysis and convert it into a precise, reliable process. This will provide the company with light-speed response to customer requests.”
High-throughput methods represent a very promising approach for the acceleration of soil contamination analysis. With increasingly stringent regulations, enhanced environmental consciousness, different soil origins and characteristics, and a vast number of analyses to perform, the FLEX POWDERDOSE provides the perfect solution to quickly and flexibly dispense any soil type in different container formats (cuvettes, vials, bottles, reactors, etc.) and provide immediate answers to demanding customers. A large number of samples can be prepared in one batch to be used for several contamination analyses: elution, mineralization, extraction and much more.
For Natura, “FLEX POWDERDOSE is an ideal tool in the preparation of powder samples as it allows the researchers to run 12 to 192 (or more) soil analysis experiments in 8 hours. This means automated dispensing of solids into ‘ready to use’ samples for testing or further sample preparation steps. The experimental results are then used to classify each soil type and provide a clear picture of current situation and possible remedies – an approach that the scientists at Natura have developed.”
