The first textbooks dedicated specifically to automated and robot assisted sample preparation in combination with process analytical measurements. These timely and systematic overviews are not only to cover biological applications, but also environmental measuring technology, drug discovery, and quality assurance approaches.
Following a critical review of realized automation solutions in biological sciences, the books go on to discuss special requirements for comparable systems for analytical applications, taking different concepts into consideration.
A central role plays the use of robots substituting manual parts in the measurement processes in combination with data handling, process and workflow controlling software systems.
