The automation of pesticide clean-up using the FREESTYLE robotic system from LCTech represents an extremely effective and personnel-relieving solution for food analysis. The use of pesticides to promote plant growth can nowadays be detected in almost all areas, such as water, fruit, vegetables, the environment, honey, beer and wildlife, and thus represents an increasing global threat.
Given the widespread use of pesticides, the volume of samples is also increasing, accompanied by a growing spectrum of analytes. To meet this demand, standardized and automated methods are necessary. Here, the FREESTYLE robotic system offers ideal solutions and enables fast and precise sample preparation.
