High throughput screening usually aims at finding the best set of an often complex parameter space related to sample preparation (e.g. formulation or synthesis) and/or process parameters which optimizes one or several figures of merit (e.g. sample or process properties). In general it consists of 4 steps : Design of experiment (DOE), preparation of samples, determination of sample properties and data analysis. The overall screening throughput is finally limited by the component of this chain with the lowest throughput, which may often be sample characterization. We have two automated high throughput procedures for the determination of sample properties using image analysis : contact angle & paint brilliance measurements.High throughput screening usually aims at finding the best set of an often complex parameter space related to sample preparation (e.g. formulation or synthesis) and/or process parameters which optimizes one or several figures of merit (e.g. sample or process properties).
