Advantages of Automated Sample Preparation

Sample preparation is one of the most important steps in analytical chemistry. Attention to detail and accuracy are essential. For these reasons, many laboratories are interested in automating sample preparation procedures so as to limit the possibility of human error. Furthermore, quantitative analysis requires not only sample preparation but also standard preparation. When making a calibration curve, the analyst needs to follow a recipe in order to ensure standard accuracy. Any mistake in the standard formulation and the calibration curve will need to be re-prepped and re-run. Thus, valuable time and resources are wasted. This application will explore automated standard preparation of Poly Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) compounds.
