Camera-Identified Labware to Yield the Most Efficient Results
Hamilton has been helping innovate the journey of discovery since 1953, and that tradition of innovation is carried forward through the Microlab Prep. New to the Microlab product line, each Prep features a camera mounted to the top of the unit that detects and identifies labware to speed up the entire process. Innovative technology on the Microlab Prep has you covered from start to finish.
Identify Labware Faster
The Prep’s camera-identified labware feature eliminates the need to look through long lists of labware options to find what you need.
Use the Right Labware for the Run
The camera guards you against running a protocol with incorrect labware pieces or placement. The Prep immediately notifies you if there’s an error in the set-up and provides instructions on what needs to be changed.
Devices and Accessories for the Microlab Prep
The Prep supports a full line of devices and accessories to automate even more tasks.
The Microlab Prep is a fantastic tool for automating areas of assays with high potential for analyst error. Not only will the machine run portions of assays with 100% accuracy, it will allow analysts to work on other lab functions while the Microlab is operating, boosting our lab efficiency. The software makes programming assays simple.
