Skalar has developed the SP2000 fully automated robotic analyzer for the analysis of pH, EC, Turbidity and Color for a prominent UK water laboratory, which processes approximately 500 water samples each day.

The laboratory uses three identical SP2000 Robotic analyzers to handle the large amount of samples efficiently every day. Each robot holds 6 sample racks each with 27 sample positions. These sample racks are custom made to fit the 250 ml screw cap plastic sample collection bottles as used by the laboratory. Skalar developed a special de-capping mechanism for unscrewing and screwing the caps. Integrating this level of automation eliminates time-consuming manual sample handling steps, enabling the laboratory to use the same sample bottles throughout the entire process, from sample collection to sample analysis on the SP2000 robotic platform
