  • Robot Chemist Case Study

    2747 Words  | 11 Pages

    Introduction With the invention of the “Robot Chemist” by Harns Baruch, automated analysers came into the biomedical arena. This has been evolved since 1959 and now has improved a lot in many aspects including the ways of inserting the samples into the analyzer. Automatic analyzer facilitates the analysis of more than one bio chemical sample at a time and also it can be programmed such that several tests can be done concurrently. This feature saves a lot of time while being accurate as well.
