What is the Microlab 600?
The Microlab 600 is a modular syringe pump built for liquid handling tasks when the job is too much for a syringe or pipette, but not enough to justify full liquid handling robots.
Unmatched Accuracy and Precision
The Microlab 600 offers accuracy and precision that outperforms class A glassware while utilizing a graphical user interface designed to quickly and easily dilute and dispense liquids.
Where is the Microlab 600 used?
Every laboratory has tasks that are too small to automate and too large to reliably accomplish by hand. The Microlab 600 is a semi-automated liquid handler designed specifically for these "in-between" applications. The Microlab 600 increases throughput and consistency while reducing cost and wasted reagent.
Easy to Order
Ordering a Microlab 600 is as easy as selecting the diluter/dispenser below. Every diluter/dispenser comes with everything needed to get started. All Microlab 600 orders come with the syringe volumes of your choice included in the purchase.
Streamline Sample and Standards Prep With a Hamilton Microlab 600
Sample testing labs can’t grow their business unless they increase throughput and lower per-sample costs. Labs that have turned to Hamilton’s semi-automation platforms are eliminating costly re-sampling expenses and reducing sample prep time by as much as 50 percent.

The Controller (Basic/Advanced)
The Microlab 600 controller features a large, easy-to-use touchscreen. A dedicated host USB port enables connection to a keyboard, mouse, printer, and barcode reader. The Controller can come with either basic or advanced software. Upgrading from basic to advanced is as simple as plugging in an SD card.
Syringe Pumps and Stepper Motors
The pump unit is the heart of the Microlab 600. The Microlab 600 is available as a single or dual syringe system. The pump unit contains a precision drive motor, the syringe drive mechanism, the valve assembly, syringe selection button, prime button, power button, and hand probe receptacles.
The high torque, precision stepper motors provide unsurpassed positional accuracy across the full range of Hamilton syringes from 10 μl to 50 mL. The instrument communicates with the controller or a computer network via an ethernet port. Serial communication via RS-232 is also possible for programming in a non Windows® environment.
For any syringe pump, the key to achieving the most accurate dispenses is eliminating all air from the fluid path. Traditional syringes trap approximately 50 μL of air between the tip of the syringe and the valve. For small syringes, this trapped air is the last to leave the syringe and the first to be drawn back in, making them difficult if not impossible to prime.
The Bubble Free Prime syringe has a conical plunger tip that extends through the threaded termination and into the valve. This unique design expels the air from the syringe and valve decreasing the number of priming cycles required.
