Robotic 8 Channel Osmometer

Project Goals

Sunrise was asked to develop software to control eight Multi-Sample Osmometers and a robotic Tube Handling System.

Sunrise Solution

  • Developed control software including interface between the osmometers and a separate automated pipetting system to exchange sample identification, e.g. test results and equipment status
  • Programmed robot for automated, unattended operation
  • Created and implemented algorithms for to address error functions and recovery
  • Easy to use GUI provides osmometer status and access to off-line operations such as calibration

Results

  • Control software functioned smoothly
  • Algorithms tracked errors for simple debug
