Thermo Scientific Orbitor RS - High Speed Microplate MoverThermo Fisher Scientific
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, has unveiled the new Thermo Scientific Orbitor RS.
Developed using proven technology from the well-known Thermo Scientific RapidStak and Thermo Scientific Dimension4 product lines, the Orbitor™ RS is a high-speed microplate mover offering proven, reliable performance with totally flexible plate handling.
Extensive vertical reach allows multiple stacked or high density instruments to be loaded in a small footprint, and a bi-directional telescoping arm provides superior reach, improved user safety and unlimited base rotations within a 360° workspace.
For unmatched speed and throughput, the Thermo Scientific Orbitor RS accommodates any SBS plate format, from shallow to deep well, in addition to tip boxes and lids, tubes or racks. This flexibility is further supported by random or sequential plate access, and the ability to mix modes of storage as assay requirements change. Laboratory safety is maximized as the robotic arm is able to pass through the base and remain inside the rotating base while turning. With closed-loop motion control, collision detection and position recovery it is poised to become the most reliable microplate mover in its class. These combine to significantly improve speed and efficiency, enabling a compact, cost-effective solution suitable for smaller workspaces, with numerous storage options and operational flexibility for a multitude of set-ups and configurations.
Advanced closed-loop motion control provides collision detection and position monitoring, allowing the robot to quickly resume without the need to re-home. With a wide range of grip-control functionality, this robot combines performance with innovation. From variable force control to plate detection, the feature-set is designed to impress. The result is remarkable speed, precise motion and consistent, accurate plate placement.
The Thermo Scientific Orbitor RS is a compact platemover with unmatched speed and accuracy. This hybrid mover combines Thermo Scientific RapidStak and Thermo Scientific Dimension4 technology to create a superior robot. Built upon our heritage of robotics leadership and integration expertise, the Thermo Scientific Orbitor RS is a sound, reliable investment for any lab.
