Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.

Chemists spend an inordinate amount of time performing low-level tasks based on visual observation. Camera-enabled laboratory
equipment in conversation with computer vision algorithms can be used to automate many of these processes, thereby freeing up valuable
time and resources. We developed a generalizable computer-vision based system capable of monitoring and controlling liquid-level across
a variety of chemistry applications. This paper reports on the system’s motivation, architecture, and successful deployment in three
experimental use cases which require continous stirring: continuous preferential crystallization (CPC), slurry filtration, and solvent swap
