The Future of Sample Preparation and Analysis has Arrived.

Introducing the accroma SamplePrep System

Sample IN – Answer OUT for chemical analysis of solid and semi-solid samples.

Automated sample preparation for more trustworthy results and a more productive lab.

We Enable Quick Automation without Sacrificing Flexibility.

Why Should you Automate your Sample Preparation Workflows?

Manual sample preparation of solid and semi-solid samples is a highly inefficient process and reliable automation has been an unsolved problem. Time and solvent-intensive cleaning steps due to carryover problems were just one of the challenges.

«Accromated sample preparation delivers more trustworthy results, improves traceability while increasing productivity and safety

The accroTube – a Gamechanger

Each sample is prepared in its own disposable and closed tube which avoids evaporation, sample loss and carry over. This makes your workflows flexible, fast and reproducible.

Step 1

Sample Introduction

Introduce your sample and potential milling and / or mixing aids

Step 2

Grinding

Samples can be dry or wet milled by a very strong vertical shaking, like in a ball mill

Step 3

Liquid Handling

Solvents are introduced or transferred through the septum to perform solvent addition, pipetting, dilution, or phase separating steps

Step 4

Extraction

Extraction is performed with a very effective shaker or by ultra sonication

Step 5

Filtration

Sample solutions are automatically filtered directly into HPLC vial. Vials are capped and may be transferred directly into the analyser.

Note: this is just a very basic example workflow, you have no limit in terms of numbers of steps and you are free in the order of the individual steps – discuss your methods directly with us.

Traditional Sample Preparation Techniques
Need to Change

Many laboratories have identified sample preparation as most frustrating and expensive component of sample analysis. While analytical technology has evolved remarkably over the last two decades, most sample preparation still relies on antiquated manual techniques. Even the simplest methods can produce unreliable results and highly variable reproducibility.

61%

of an analyst’s time is dedicated to sample preparation and its documentation.

90%

of all Out of Specification (OOS) results are not quality related but are caused during the analytical procedures.

More than 30%

of all errors occur during sample preparation.
The only solution to optimize such inefficient, error-prone, and expensive processes is automation. It leads to standardized and digitalized sample preparation for lean labs 4.0.

One Innovation – Three Major Advantages

Reproducibility

The closed and disposable tubes impede evaporation and carry-over for reproducible and reliable results.

Flexibility

Switching between samples is simple. Up to 64 different samples, each with a different workflow can be prepared in one run.

Speed

Vertical shaking enables quick grinding and extraction. Workflows can be overlapped for maximum throughput and as no cleaning is required, cycle times are short.

Sample Volume

The accroTube technology makes the accroma system suitable even for
laboratories with low and diverse sample volumes. We automate your sample preparation without
sacrificing flexibility.

Method Transfer is Simple

The automation of manual sample preparation method may not require any adjustments. If a method needs to be modified for automation, there is a simple and defined process to proof equivalence.

Your Tubes are Sustainable

To ensure scientific accuracy and reproducibility, accroma requires material of highest quality and inertness. Sustainability is important to us for which reason we use recyclable materials like polyethylene and iron. Both materials are 100% recyclable and can be reused as secondary raw materials. However, we need your help to separate content, tubes and steel balls.

Large sample type compatibility

The volume range of the accroTubes and the functionalities of the system allow to automate the sample preparation of a wide range of sample types. Therefore, it is used in numerous industries for the preparation of samples for chemical analysis. Whether it is the determination of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients in tablets or contaminants in food, we offer sample IN – Answer OUT automation.
