SCSR Automated Prototype (SCSR)  

Figure 1 shows the  SCSR Automated Cell Isolation Prototype. The machine consists of a robotic arm, gripper, and several computer-controlled components, including a centrifuge accommodating 50-ml tubes, syringe pump, scale, vortex mixer, and liquid gradient interface detector.  The operation places 6 capped sample tubes into the input rack and starts the system from the computer.  Processing takes approximately 80 minutes, with washed cells in fresh tubes placed in output rack.
