Astech Projects has launched Syringe-Pro, a fully automated solution for pre-filled syringe sample preparation and testing.
Developed as an extension to Astech's Tablet-Pro technology, the Syringe-Pro can increase the throughput of in-line sample analysis.
It can perform all of the major steps involved in sample preparation including, syringe content deposit, sample dissolution (including vortexing), dilution, dispensing and sample storage, with a further option for injecting to analysis equipment.
In addition, operator hazards are minimised compared to manual testing, with the efficient disposal of spent consumables and syringes.
The software developed to support compliance with electronic record and signature regulations allows quick set-up of preparative and analytical procedures with minimal training.
Sales and marketing director, Anthony Moran said: 'The Syringe-Pro's advanced software allows discrete functions to operate concurrently, so sample preparation and analysis can take place simultaneously.
'This has allowed us to increase throughput when compared to existing automated systems,' he added.
Astech Projects are accredited with ISO 9001 Tickit and the Syringe-Pro system has been designed to meet the requirements of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) and is fully compliant with 21 CFR 11.
