Robots in lab­o­ra­tory automation

Higher throughput with less sus­cep­ti­bility to errors

Despite typ­ical assembly task lab­o­ra­tory appli­ca­tions are also becoming increas­ingly auto­mated. The goal is a higher throughput, faster and more repro­ducible results, and reduced sus­cep­ti­bility to errors. Deploy your robot with ArtiMinds RPS in a flex­ible way and easily adapt it to new tasks. Based on the broad set of com­mu­ni­ca­tion inter­faces, you can quickly inte­grate other lab­o­ra­tory equip­ment into your process and run pro­grams directly from ArtiMinds RPS. If required, this can even elim­i­nate the need for a PLC.

Today, robots are able to per­form numerous dif­ferent lab­o­ra­tory activ­i­ties and take over work that is too dan­gerous or monot­o­nous for humans.
The advan­tage: even with a large number of sam­ples, exact repro­ducibility, i.e. recur­ring process sta­bility and quality, is guar­an­teed and lab­o­ra­tory per­sonnel are relieved.

For lab­o­ra­tory appli­ca­tions with small batch sizes, the focus is less on high throughput and more on high vari­ability.

ArtiMinds RPS pro­vides an exten­sive tem­plate data­base for all types of robot move­ments and tasks as well as a wide variety of inter­faces. This makes it easy to imple­ment even com­plex move­ments such as shaking or rotating test tubes or flasks, as well as force-con­trolled filling and emp­tying of pipettes.

Appli­ca­tion example: Pipet­ting and dis­pensing liquids

With ArtiMinds +Vision and a vision sensor, the robot is able to detect which test tube needs to be picked up during pipet­ting and dis­pensing. The con­tents are then filled into an Erlen­meyer flask. After­wards the robot lifts the flask and shakes it, to mix the dif­ferent contents.
For filling or draining the pipette, the gripper is closed until a cer­tain force is reached to press the flex­ible ball head.
