Automation Without Robotics: Elimination Of Sample Transfer Steps To Optimize Yield And Data Quality In The Laboratory

By Ian Whitehall, Senior Research Scientist for Servier Research and Development, and Peter Bennett, Sales Director for SP Industries


Changing sample vessel format is an area of discovery research that can cause problems; sample tracking, sample loss, and robotic referencing are among the many drawbacks of having to perform a transfer step. Genevac set out to attempt to “automate” the transfer step within their evaporation systems and developed the SampleGenie™ system.

A study was conducted by the Department of Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics at Servier Research and Development Ltd to evaluate SampleGenie and determine if it is suitable for their processes. Their aim was to replace several manual steps. Quantitative recovery of the sample is key to their work in evaluating the drugs and metabolites under test. Explore the methods and results from their investigation.
