Pot Dosing and Capping System

Reagent Dosing & Pot Capping System

A bespoke high throughput machine to dose and cap milk sample bottles, that, once the operator loads a tray, automatically doses pots with 0.05ml of preservative and caps them. The system is used by numerous operators so has to be intuitive and simple to operate.

High Throughput Precipitate Detection System

High Throughput Precipitate Detection System

A precipitate detecting system installed in Siena, Italy. The system is used to analyse the amount of precipitate in liquid samples. A software algorithm is implemented to automatically determine the amount of precipitate. All vials are tracked using 2D barcodes allowing output transmission data to be outputted to a LIMS system.

Medimmune Sample Purification Robot

The robot is used as part of the development of human monoclonal antibody therapeutics and performs the initial sample purification by passing a number of reagents through SPE columns followed by the sample. The resultant purified sample is collected in Eppendorf tubes ready for aliquoting.

Project P.Cezanne

As part of an EU consortium, Labman helped to develop a long term implantable glucose sensor. Labman’s role was to design and manufacture the casing and encapsulation for the device.

Centrifuge and clean-up system Labman

Centrifuge and Clean-up System

This system prepares samples ready for injection into various analysers. Turbid samples are collected into vials. The turbidity of the sample is monitored. Should the turbidity of the sample exceed the required minimum then the vial and contents are centrifuged at 6000xg otherwise they are discarded.

Sussex University Bumble Bee & Ant Simulator

In order to aid the University of Sussex CNNR, Labman developed this system to simulate bumble bee flight paths and ant trajectories. In particular, the research is focusing on the visual navigation of these animals through large scale environments. Neurological algorithms representing a bees’ brain are loaded into the system and over time evolved into more complex control systems.

Frit Filtering and Chilled Block Dispensing

Frit Filtering and Chilled Block Dispensing

This system takes aliquots from a temperature controlled reaction block via a frit filter and injects them into septum sealed GC vials. The reaction block is peltier chilled and electrically heated allowing for a range of temperatures or computer controlled reaction temperature profiles.
