High density configuration allows increased pipetting speed, easier programming and tracking
Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, Washington, D.C., (February 8, 2015) -
Hamilton Company a leading provider in the design and manufacture of liquid handling, process measurement, robotics and storage solutions, today introduced two new features to its NIMBUS4 independent channel liquid handling robot, a small-scale liquid handler designed for space and budget-conscious labs.
The NIMBUS4 system now adds a high density deck to its repertoire of deck configurations. The new deck design allows up to twenty (20) SBS deck locations all within the same compact footprint of the NIMBUS platform. The high density deck increases throughput, enables longer walkaway times and utilizes flexible labware carriers for on-the-fly deck changes. The new high density deck offers the most labware positions available compared to similar sized platforms in the industry of laboratory automation.
The NIMBUS4 system also includes a 9 mm center to center independent channel system. The 9 mm spacing allows for random access across the entire deck surface. This spacing makes for easier programming, increased pipetting speed and simplified sample tracking. The 9 mm spacing is available with our 4 channel pipetting arm.
Hamilton Company will be exhibiting the NIMBUS4 system during the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, SLAS (Hamilton Company booth # 501), in Washington, D.C., February 7-11, 2015
