Abstract: Laboratories providing life science applications will gain on improved analysis´ efficiency and reliability by automating sample pretreatment. However, commercially available automated systems are especially suitable for the standardized MTP-format allowing for biological assays, whereas automating analytical sample pretreatment is still an unsolved challenge. Therefore, the purpose of this presentation is the design, the realization, and evaluation of an automated system that supplies multistep analytical sample pretreatment and high flexibility for easy upgrading and performance adaption.
