Why use automation in the laboratory? Many small laboratories want to optimise their processes and increase their throughput rates but recoil at the frequently high costs and time-consuming integration work, when only simple combinations of devices or magazines are required. Until now, many routines such as “insertion/removal” have been performed manually, which ties up personnel […]

Pipetting technology for laboratory equipment (white paper)

Ulf Hottung | 20. March 2020

What solution is technically best at the PoC or in an automated laboratory? Unfortunately, there is no single answer to this question, so we will tackle it by contrasting various concepts that take into account a wide variety of applications involving automated pipetting devices. Let’s take, for instance, a rural community practice in which the […]
