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.
