In order to complete testing work more efficiently, companies are now implementing automated solutions to their most common testing challenges. The pipetting robot is one of the latest solutions offered to help drive productivity within testing procedures. Within this latest post, our AB Controls team details more on the pipetting robot and its many benefits.
Uncapping, Pipetting and Recapping
As a reliable means of completing testing procedures, the pipetting robot chosen has to be able to uncap, pipet and then recap the tool. That’s part of the reason that many testing companies are now turning to the VIX system from AB Controls. VIX is designed to be adaptable and can handle various size vials. It completes uncapping and recapping procedures via servo torque tensing and can therefore offer exceptional reliability.
For those that complete the same type of pipetting work across various testing modules, a pipetting robot such as the VIX can complete the pipetting process with seamless repeatability. The VIX operates via an ADP (Air Displacement Pipet) and this delivers a repeatability of close to 1%, which ensures automation can be built into a range of testing procedures.
Protection for Lab Teams
One of the foremost advantages of choosing an automated pipetting robot is that it can help to protect lab teams against the repetitive stress injuries and strains that may result from constantly completing the same actions within the lab.
High Level of Automation Control
Another leading reason so many lab teams are now turning to pipetting robot options is that it provides them with greater flexibility within their testing work. The VIX system is in complete control of FOCUS, which is AB Controls’ automation software. FOCUS scripts can be modified for the liquid and testing application, and so testing teams can automate their processes to deliver specific liquids at programmed volumes and speeds.
The costs of running a team of lab technicians and completing testing procedures over a larger group can be a significant expenditure for smaller firms. An automated pipetting robot such as the VIX can help companies save time and boost their lab productivity over many years.
