AB-Mikrotiter-Scansystem

Fast and precise analysis of microtiter plates

The microplate scanning system enables consistent results with a minimized error rate. Two scanning systems move in push-pull motion and thus compensate for the counterforce of the acceleration. As a result, the system is stationary even in desk-top set-up and allows the very high precision of the scanning movement.

The high-resolution 25 mm focus axis with µm resolution ensures optimum analysis results. It can be equipped with a double or single sensor arm. Operation can be either in on-the-fly mode with position trigger or in inertia-compensated start-stop mode with two actuators.

  • Ideal for high-precision applications in research and diagnostics
  • Reliable and consistent results due to high-precision positioning with repeatability up to 5 µm
  • Fast and controlled scanning of samples at up to 500 mm/s
  • Scanning of up to 120 well plates per hour by two single pipette, camera, sensor, dispenser or dosing systems working in parallel
  • Maintenance-free and automated 24/7 operation due to air bearing
Optionally expandable:
  • Modular system design or as desk-top installation
  • Scalable and expandable to 8 or 16 plates
  • Focus axis can be equipped with double or single sensor arm
  • Design for clean room ISO 14644-1 class 6 (up to class 1 on request)
  • Bus connection for easy integration into the system control

Maximum throughput and efficiency

The linear motor used offers high speeds as well as accelerations, which guarantees particularly fast and controlled scanning of the samples at up to 500 mm/s. Up to 120 well plates can thus be scanned per hour with a single pipette or single sensor.This makes the compact platform ideal for use in newly developed analytical instruments for cell manipulation, cell monitoring as well as cell therapy and can also be easily adapted to the needs of laboratory automation, pharmaceutical testing and cytology.
