Overview

System Overview.

Labman installed the first next generation cryogenic plant grinder and dispensing system at IPB in Halle, Germany. The system is based on the highly successful system installed at the Max Plank institute in 2007. The new system is improved with a faster more accurate vial handling robot and also new sealing methods to reduce the time between defrosts to around five weeks. The system is capable of grinding and dispensing plant material loaded in 20ml scintillation vials and also 2ml centrifuge tubes. An updated dispense algorithm and powder dispensing hardware allows higher accuracy and throughput.

“The newest model of TIDAS instruments is being put through rigorous evaluation and constant use. The upgrades to the software and automatic draw-down device have made this newest member of the TIDAS family an indispensable must have. The results obtained from the TIDAS instruments have made it easy to show our customers the reality of lab grind analysis without putting o a lab coat, for this we are grateful. Thanks to the Labman team for the great support and superb customer service. The transition from installation to full practice was a snap.”
