YUGS Load

Biomass preparation system

A bench-mounted system that grinds and dispenses biomass into individual wells within a plate. Operators can load up to 96 2ml input vials and one well plate.

IPB Cryogenic Grinder and Feeder System

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 University of York Funnel Feeder System

Funnel Feeder System

Developed for The University of York, this system contains an analytical balance with a custom pan designed to take any standard well plate. A funnel mounted on the system axes moves over the wells in a predetermined order allowing the operator to feed plant material into each well.

Michigan State University Grinder and Feeder System

The Michigan State University iWall system was installed as part of the GLBRC (Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Centre). The system takes any freeze-dried plant material, grinds the material into a very fine powder destroying the cell walls and then dispenses 2mg into output vials for analysis. The system is capable of processing 300 plant samples in 24 hours.

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.

Max Planck Cryogenic Plant Grinding & Feeding System

A unique system for cryogenically grinding and then feeding milligram amounts of plant material into sample vials ready for analysis. The system is loaded with vials containing plant material and steel balls for grinding.

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.
