  • Build yours: This autosampler is being used to automate the measurement of gamma rays using germanium (HPGe) in natural samples. Before it, people needed to come on the weekends to change samples. The whole setup costs about US$500 and substitutes a machine that costs US$250,000. The main challenge was to open the lids. Each lid weighs more than 300kg. The video only shows 7 samples being processed, but the whole 9 samples were processed that day. This is another autosampler that can work with an analytical instrument by means of AutoIt.
