Good morning Barry,
Yes we are using a robotic station for the determination of metals with borate fusion and XRF. It is called the rFusion and consist of an automatic weighing station, a mixing station, a 6 degree of freedom robotic arm fitted with 3 dimentional cameras, and 2 automated multi-position fusion apparatus.
It can prepare a minimum of 360 samples a day; non stop. The analytical precision of the rFusion robotic station is outstanding.
Please let me know if I can be of further help.

Is anyone using a robotic system (PE Janus, Hamilton Star or Tecan) for sample preparation for trace element analysis. Any comments or experience please, in confidence if necessary.
