HTX: Measurement of viscosity, density, concentration of liquids, highly automated and expandable
Versatile automation platform for combining sample preparation and multiple analysis
The high-throughput platform HTX is an automation and robotics platform from Anton Paar. HTX combines sample preparation and multiple analytical devices for single and multiparameter analysis in one fully automated workflow. It processes up to 2000 samples per day. The HTX platform is based on a modular concept that enables you to combine up to ten modules to meet your current and future throughput requirements. Besides analytical instruments from Anton Paar such as density meters, you can also implement single functions such as a bar code reader, tray modules, and third-party devices like pH meters.Get in touch
Many possibilities of HTX use
- Viscosity: To determine the dynamic and kinematic viscosity as well as the density in one go
- Density: Measurement of density with a precision up to 0.000001 g/cm3
- Refractive Index: Measurement of the refractive index and concentration
- Polarimeter: To evaluate the specific rotation and concentration of optically active substances
Several analytical instruments can be combined on the HTX platform so that you are able to perform a multiparameter analysis of your sample within one workflow, from sample loading via multiple analyses to data evaluation. You benefit from measuring data from one and the same sample which is used for all analyses. The sample can either be transferred automatically from one analysis instrument to the next or it is always taken from the same sample source to feed the analytical instruments separately. You are free to flexibly combine sample preparation functionalities with analytical measurement.
Everything under control
The intuitive HTX control software is Windows®-based and provides an easy way to manage your sample workflow. With the software each step of the sample processing and every parameter are traceable over the whole process. Moreover, the software provides a broad variety of notification services such as text message or email.
Maximum uptime guaranteed
The reliable, accurate, and robust system fulfills the highest quality standards and ensures a runtime of 24/7 over a long lifetime. If maintenance is required, the affected module can be easily removed and another module takes over the work to keep the remaining workflow intact. This guarantees maximum uptime and keeps the operation costs low.
Easy communication with everybody
HTX supports industry standards like PROFINET, Ethernet, CAN bus, and RS232 to communicate with your company network. It also provides an easy way to export your methods and measurement data as a CSV file or SQL database. Furthermore, the interfaces for solvents, pressure, ventilation, and energy supply are standardized.
Flexible system for every workflow
The HTX platform can be configured individually with up to ten modules to prepare and measure up to 2000 samples a day. To suit your needs the platform can be equipped with measuring devices from Anton Paar as well as from third parties. Inside the robotic cell the gripper tool transports the vials from one module to the other and also detects if a vial is broken or lost. Besides the measuring devices, the robotic platform can also be equipped with single functions like a bar code reader, a shaker, or liquid dispenser.
