Automated Valves

 

What you see in the figure is a Hamilton valve  coupled to a pretty strong servo motor.  Everything is held in place using a mounting that is 3d printed.  Ok, so what can you do with a few syringe pumps and valves?  Can you automate a flash chromatography system?  What about making a DNA- or peptide-synthesizer?  The guy in the photo there is on the way to being incorporated into my autotitrator..
