The VALet benchtop robot enables simple, configurable laboratory automation. Adaptable to user demands, the robot is designed to allow multiple hotel positioning for customizable, high-density microplate movement and storage, which can increase productivity in a limited workspace. With four-axis plus servo-gripper, and the capacity to access both single and multiple arrayed nests, handles various instrument loading functions. Applications range from simple instrument loading to more complex, integrated workflows. With a flexible design and on-board re-grip station, the high-capacity microplate storage can be placed on the left, right or at the front to optimize its fit in the laboratory. User-defined choices also include random or sequential storage access, giving a capacity of up to 45 or 120 microplates, respectively.
It enables the quick addition of connecting carousels, which can be mixed and matched to provide enhanced storage and workflow capacity tailored to specific requirements. This ability to accept multiple storage expansion options makes it an adaptable robot in the microplate mover sector, with considerable upgrade capability.
