Stratedigm offers the A700 High Throughput Hotel. The A700 complements the company's existing line of flow cytometry platforms which include the A600 High Throughput Auto Sampler and Stratedigm's suite of flow cytometer analyzers, ranging from the entry level two laser, eight parameter SE520 model to the S1000Ex.
The Agilent Labware MiniHub from Agilent Automation Solutions is a rotating random-access device for presenting and storing SBS-format labware in laboratory automation systems.
The Agilent Direct Drive Robot (DDR) from Agilent Automation Solutions has been designed for applications that include drug target discovery or drug screening.
Current automation projects follow two major trends: customized technologies and smaller dedicated systems. In labs from academia and industry, researchers automate an increasing number of tasks. To serve these trends, vendors face a range of challenges, such as developing software to drive sample handling.
The R-Series BenchCel (Velocity11, Menlo Park, CA) microplate handling system features enhanced positional accuracy, increased payload, reduced installation time and simpler user adjustments than its predecessor.
A suite of standalone benchtop systems is available for automated plate handling, sealing, piercing, storage, centrifugation and bar code printing. The BenchCel Microplate Handling System is a versatile, high speed, compact plate handler that can access up to three peripheral instruments.
Integrating the Velocity11 BenchCel microplate handling system and VSpin Access 2 automated microplate centrifuge, this workstation automates handling of up to 320 microplates. A software interface allows users to specify centrifugation settings.
VolumeCheck instrument allows uses to verify the presence of solutions and or samples in uncapped and unsealed well plates, tube racks, or vials of less than 70 mm in height.
Polara RS software package allows the Thermo Electron Corp. RapidStak microplate stacker to schedule and automate two instruments simultaneously, addressing a range of applications and assays. This allows RapidStak to control, automate and schedule most lab instruments.
The Quadra3 pipetting workstation is offered with lidded plate handling stackers and automatic de-lidding capability.
The TekCel Plate Management System automates distributed compound storage and management. Compound integrity is preserved and plate handling and management fully automated from storage through assay analysis, regardless of the equipment employed at either end.
The TTP LabTech comPANION provides fast, remote delivery of cherry-picked microtubes to any location up to 15 m away from compound. It generates a rack of 96 microtubes individually selected from the company's comPOUND 100,000-tube store in about nine minutes, processing over 5,000 tubes in a day.
The plate::explorer® Ultra High Throughput Screening System combines plate::vision® high
The RTS Life Science Sample Store is now being supplied as a fully integrated package, with internal picking robotics, cold room and liquid handling stations. It is designed to eliminate internal dead space and provide very high density storage.
The PlateServer module provides automated plate management for assay systems used in drug discovery applications. It performs all operations within an inert environment, maximizing compound integrity and extending compound library life.
