Hamilton Robotics had declared partnership with Peak Robotics to include KiNEDx robot family in their MICROLAB STAR automated liquid handling workstation. In contrast to conventional labware grippers, the dexterity of the high-speed KiNEDx robot offers accessibility to devices and deck positions.
The robot also enables tilting and turning over plates for quaking or resuspension. This enables the robot to be deployed in several applications such as ELISA tests, sample making and protein crystallization.
The KiNEDx arm is controlled by Hamilton MICROLAB VENUS software by means of new software drivers. The drivers enable reprogrammed movements or call functions and the operator can easily include variations in motion.
Steve Cowles, Business Development Manager for Peak Robotics, expressed his pleasure in collaborating with Hamilton Robotics to provide several automation solutions for clients belonging to various segments such as drug development, genomics and clinical diagnostics. He added that the widespread sales and delivery channels of Hamilton will widen their sales opportunities, in particular Asia.
Scott Eaton, Director of Clinical and International Sales for Hamilton Robotics, has mentioned that KiNEDx robot provides a wide range of latest functionalities and can be easily programmed.
