Lab automation uses tools to automate laboratory processes, increase productivity and reduce lab process cycle times.
Autosamplers are automated sample loaders, usually robotic, used with chromatography and other analytical technologies.
Laboratory centrifuges are used to separate particles from a solution according to their size, shape, density, and viscosity of the medium and rotor speed.
Dispensers feed measured amounts of materials, either manually or automatically. The most common types of dispensers are bottle top and burette.
Labware washers are used to clean various types of laboratory equipment.
Microplate processing systems are used to prepare samples for drug discovery or chemical analysis applications.
Microplate readers are designed to scan, analyze and obtain numerical results from chemical reactions conducted within microplates.
Microplate washers combine buffer dispensing and aspiration cycles to remove reagents from sample wells.
Pipettes and tips are used to deliver a known quantity of solution to a vessel. They are either of the classical style (glass) or digital.
Robots are programmable manipulators that contain rotary and/or prismatic joints in order to perform precise, repetitive movements. They are designed to move parts, tools, materials, and devices through variable, programmed motions. Types of products include articulated, Cartesian, cylindrical, gantry, parallel (hexapods), SCARA, and spherical robots.
Thermal cyclers are laboratory instruments capable of generating and maintaining specific temperatures for a defined period of time.
