Methodology Problems in Automated Analyses

  • S. Ahuja
Part of the Progress in Analytical Chemistry book series (PAC)

Abstract

Method development problems encountered in automated analysis generally stem from the limitations of the automated system. The problems encountered with each type of equipment are peculiar to that particular equipment. Only the methodology problems encountered with the AutoAnalyzer* will be discussed here. AutoAnalyzer is a modular system with versatility of handling a variety of operations such as homogenization or solubilization, dilution, dialysis or filtration, and liquid/liquid or liquid/solid extractions. Analytical determinations are made by colorimetry, spectrophotometry, etc., with the help of appropriate equipment. The following modules are generally used:
  • SOLIDprep

  • Liquid Sampler or Sampler II

  • Proportioning Pumps

  • Continuous Filter

  • Dialyzer

  • Mixing Coils

  • Automatic Digestor

  • Spectrophotometer, Colorimeter, etc.
