The handling of hazardous liquids is not only an issue of spacecraft processing. Also for Life Sciences experiments on the ISS this challenge is a typical task.
Airbus DS GmbH is currently developing the biochemical analyser "Immunolab" for the DLR to provide real-time state-of-the art biochemical analysis of biological samples on board of the ISS. This system uses similar functionalities like a clinical laboratory. This includes the handling of liquid reagents up to THL-2 for the pre-analytical steps of the samples and the kit compounds. The quantitative concentration measurements are done by an imaging fluorescence-microscope. The total instrument has a size of about two shoe-boxes and most of the operations procedures are automated.
