Automated Dilutions Using the Centurion
Analysis of field samples in environmental laboratories can sometimes be complicated by how contaminated or “hot” the sample is. Many times “hot” samples have to be diluted in order to verify the level of contamination in the sample. The process of diluting samples is a time consuming process that can sometimes lead to human error when calculations are incorrect. A further problem is the loss of volatile organic compounds as the sample vial needs to be opened in order to perform the dilution.
