The Rack Runner is used to integrate our automated storage systems to several devices including Microlab STAR Line workstations, additional storage systems, DeCappers, or third-party equipment such as hotels, incubators, and plate readers.

The two desktop versions—Rack Runner 720 and Rack Runner 1872—are built to position the linear drive robot directly on a workbench.

The Line Rack Runner is a modular and scalable system that is configured to the user’s needs. This version can link devices over a distance of up to 8.0 m (26.2 ft), providing easy integration for large laboratories and factories.

The Line Rack Runner can be expanded in the field to easily add more equipment. It includes a protective housing to guarantee safety for users, which can be purged with dry air or inert gas to eliminate frost buildup during cold sample transport. Lastly, the access portal can be electronically locked by the user. 


  • Compact footprint easily integrates into a laboratory
  • Built-in force sensors control the gentle, yet firm grip on the racks and plates
  • Absolute encoders eliminate slow and risky initialization movements and collisions with peripheral devices
  • Wireless data transmission eliminates moving cables on the linear track
  • Linear drive technology produces minimal wear
  • Modern direct current motors provide forceful and smooth movements
