Rothamsted Research Liquid Handling System

The second of two modules installed at Rothamsted Research, this system performs the wet chemistry processes on plant material. Samples are diluted, mixed, incubated, capped, automatically loaded and unloaded from a centrifuge, de-capped and then sub sampled into target vials (NMR, ESI-MS vials).

Automated Oil Dilution System Labman

Oil Dilution System

The system dilutes oil samples to specified dilution factors so that they can be loaded into sample analysers in the laboratory. Includes a heated vial rack, vortexer station, capping/de-capping stations and solvent dispense station with weight feedback.

Automated Metabolite Extraction System

Automated Metabolite Extraction System

The world’s first fully automated metabolite extraction system, used for the preparation of plant tissues and subsequent polar and non-polar metabolite extraction assays.

BOD Incubator System Labman

BOD Incubator System

Available as an optional add on to the Labman BOD robots or as a standalone unit these incubators offer flexibility over regular off the shelf incubators, especially for storage of large numbers of bottles and racks.

Plant Grinding and Preparation System

Plant Grinding and Preparation System

Three units: a cryogenic biomass grinding and dispensing system; a room temperature biomass grinding and dispensing system; and a sample extraction system.

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.

Vitens Automated Water Laboratory

An entire water laboratory system for Vitens Laboratorium in Leeuwarden, Holland that runs unattended overnight with results ready first thing in the morning.
