Automating Sample Digestion – AMiRA project P1196A

ColdBlock Technologies is proud to announce the continuation of AMiRA project P1196 under a new project titled P1196A. In this project ColdBlock Technlogies is seeking partners to bring automation to the innovative ColdBlock Digestion technology and to further build on the impressive results of AMiRA project P1196.

The objective  of project P1196A is to expand the application of ColdBlock Digestion (CBD) and  incorporate the CBD system into an automation platform to substantially increase sample throughput.  In partnership with Questron Technologies, ColdBlock looks to bring a CBD system of 2×24 units operating sequentially, that is integrated in Questrons own Nitron automation platform. The automation platform would include built-in ventilation and allow for automated dispensing of up to 4 acids resulting in high throughput for sample sizes of up to 30 g/channel.

In summary the project P1196A looks to build on the benefits that were demonstrated in project P1196 through:

  1. Unmatched sample throughput with automation.
  2. Substantial cost reduction in sample preparation through automation.
  3. Elevated workplace safety by reducing handling of harmful reagents.
  4. Elevated productivity and efficiency through automation of reagent addition.
