Symyx Rapid GPCTM is a high throughput method for characterizing polymer molecular weight and molecular weight distribution. This system includes a sample preparation system that is used to dilute the polymer samples and inject the samples into the GPC system. The sample preparation system has heated liquid dispensing pipettes for handling viscous polymers. The GPC system uses high-speed columns and an evaporative light scattering detector. Samples can be analyzed in as little as 10 minutes.

Coating friction, tack, wear, and chemical resistance measurements can be performed on coatings applied to glass and metal substrates using this Symyx Tools bench top system. The essential element of this tool is a disposable steel sphere fitted to a dual axis force transducer mounted to the end of an XYZ robotic arm. The spherical probe, selected from more than 100 loaded on the deck, is then brought into contact with the coating at a specified force and moved back and forth or up and down depending on the measurement being made.

Coating depositions are conducted on a Symyx® bench top unit that can generate coating films using casting or drawdown methods. The unit features 12 mini blenders for high shear mixing of materials with short working times. This allows for reactive components to be added just before the films are formed. Liquid coatings and reagents are transferred using 1ml positive displacement tips and can be positioned in heated and magnetically stirred bays. Microtiter format substrates are delivered to the system with a Velocity 11 BenchCel 4xTM for coating deposition.

Multichannel Pipetting System
A TecanTM EVO multichannel pipetting system is used for formulation dispensing and other sample work-up needs. Eight independently addressable pipettes are mounted on one robot arm allowing dispensation into eight wells in a single operation. Under deck stirring and plate manipulation are also possible with this station.
