Plant Grinding and Preparation System

0

In 2014 Labman installed three systems at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) at Aberystwyth University. Cryogenic Biomass Grinding and Dispensing System. The cryogenic grinder system is an automated plant sample grinding and dispensing system that is built around a chest freezer which maintains an operating temperature of -60°C. The system is used to grind plant samples into a fine powder, which is then dispensed to a configured number of output vials.

Cryogenic Biomass Grinding and Dispensing System

  • High throughput process up to 72 input vials and 216 outputs (3 replicates) in 20 hours.
  • Automatic ball mill grinding.
  • Automatic powder dispensing into 2ml Sarstedt vials.
  • Configurable grinding and dispensing for different sample material.
  • Powder dispense precision +/- 0.002g.
  • Operating temperature of -60°C.

Room Temperature Biomass Grinding and Dispensing System

  • High throughput process up to 144 input vials and 432 outputs (3 replicates) in 32 hours.
  • Automatic ball mill grinding.
  • Automatic powder dispensing into 2ml Sarstedt vials.
  • Configurable grinding and dispensing for different sample material.
  • Powder dispense precision +/- 0.0005g.

Sample Extraction System

  • High throughput process up to 144 input vials and 144 outputs.
  • Automatic capping and de-capping of vials.
  • Centrifugation.
  • Incubate samples up to 70°C.
  • Dispense liquid from any one of 5 solvent reservoirs.
  • Dispense volume range 30ul to 20ml.
  • Mix at up to 600rpm.
  • Sample Transfer.
  • Sample concentration with drier.

Room Temperature Biomass Grinding and Dispensing System

The room temperature grinder system performs the same grind and dispense process as the cryogenic grinder system, however all actions are performed at room temperature.

Sample Extraction System

The sample extraction system is used to perform a number of operations on pre-ground plant samples that are output from one of the Labman grinder systems. The system contains a number of modules that are driven using a flexible protocol editor allowing the system to adapt easily to different requirements and research direction.
