The trend for automation in laboratories has increased in recent years. Why?
The need to increase efficiency
, reduce errors
, and improve data quality
is driving this transformation. New technologies such as instruments for automated analysis, IoT and cloud platforms that control equipment even remotely and streamlined data management solutions that reduce the need for manual data entry, are addressing these requirements.
The positive news is that not only new analytical methods
and new instruments are part of this “revolution”. Wet chemistry
and reference analyses are affected, also Kjeldahl analysis
Automation has become increasingly important within the laboratory, as it offers numerous benefits in terms of accuracy, efficiency, precision and productivity. An automated Kjeldahl system
is an example of how automation is transforming high-throughput laboratory processes in the field of analytical chemistry.
Analytical chemistry involves the analysis of substances to determine their composition, structure, and properties, involving a series of complex and time-consuming steps that require a high degree of precision and accuracy. Traditional methods of analysis often involve manual procedures
, which can be both time-consuming and prone to human error. Automation guarantees streamlining processes and reduces the potential for errors.
