The automatic sample changer

For soft-matter and biology studies the standard sample environment is often an automated sample changer with up to 22 positions for optical cells with a thickness of 1 to 5 mm (300-1500 µl). The temperature of the sample changer can be varied between 278 and 353 K with a double bath system that allows the user to switch rapidly from one temperature to another. The usual array of standard sample environments includes rheometer, shear cell, stopped-flow device, and acoustic levitator.
