What will this machine do?

People today buy and use many skin care and hygienic products, so a lot of them need to be produced. Unfortunately, some big marketing chains use animals for testing if the product is safe for use. That's why we invented a machine which will bring a new era into cosmetics production and science and stop animal abuse. This is how it works:
A sample of the compound is put into a specified container (which has the function to clean and disinfect after every use), and runs through three tests. The first one analyses the ingredients in the compound, the second determines if it's safe to use, and the last one provides the whole analysis of the process. The whole process lasts about 47 minutes.

Danas svi kupuju i troše brojne kozmetičke proizvode, te se radi toga velik broj mora proizvoditi. Neki veliki industrijski lanci nažalost koriste životinje za testiranja i pokuse kako bi se ustvrdilo je li proizvod valjan da ga ljudi koriste. Zato je izumljen novi stroj koji će opremiti laboratorije diljem svijeta i stati na kraj mučenju životinja.
Uzorak smjese ulijeva se u određen spremnik (koji se sam dezinficira i očisti nakon svake uporabe), te prolazi kroz tri programa stroja: prvi analizira sastav smjese, drugi procjenjuje sigurnost korištenja te zadnji ispisuje analizu prva dva programa i navodi što je potrebno ispraviti u sastavu ako je potrebno. Proces traje u prosjeku 47 minuta – ovisno o kompliciranosti smjese.
