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 the soft­ware 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.
