How GC technology and sampling automation support social distancing in the lab maintaining productivity
Forced to reduce people working in the lab? Are you seeing your productivity declining? Struggling to have the instruments serviced promptly? Those are only few of the issues testing laboratories are facing in the current pandemic situation.
Through modularity it is very easy to quickly recover operations in case of unplanned issues with no need of service calls or it is possible to make maintenance off-line with no instrument downtime, reducing the presence in the lab. In the same way, a robotic autosampler can be easily programmed to automate common sample handling operations like calibration set up or standard additions, providing unattended operations and possibility of remote control.
