Product News: New R-Series BenchCel® Microplate Handling System

27 Mar 2007

Velocity11 has advanced the cornerstone platform of its highly successful line of Workstation solutions, with an all new design of the industry's most advanced, high speed microplate handlers.

The new R-Series BenchCel® Microplate Handling System includes extended vertical reach capability, which gives this plate handler a unique ability to work with up to two stacked instruments per side. Highly configurable Workstations enable barcode labeling, microplate sealing, plate reading, centrifugation as well as sophisticated liquid handling applications using Velocity11 or third-party instruments.

The new R-Series adds features including enhanced positional accuracy, increased payload, reduced setup time, simplified serviceability (new quick-swap robot module), easier user adjustments, improved robot diagnostic software, and new expanded documentation with step-by-step tutorials.

A new slot-style top loading labware rack and a front load, door-style rack will be offered in addition to the standard closed-front rack in a range of sizes. New racks are backward compatible with existing BenchCel X-Series systems.
