Product News: Hamilton Expands ZEUS® Pipetting Family

08 Feb 2017

Hamilton Company now offers a choice of pipetting modules, between the well-known ZEUS® and the new ZEUS LT OEM pipetting module. Each incorporates Hamilton’s industry leading pipetting technology, reducing the integrator’s learning curve and getting instruments to market faster. Both are ideal for analytical instrument and clinical diagnostic systems, and ZEUS LT offers the option for integrators to custom design the z-axis.

More than a simple pipette module, the ZEUS LT incorporates Hamilton’s intelligent air displacement pipetting technology including; Qualitative Pipette Monitoring™ (QPM) for monitoring clogged tips or foam aspiration, Anti-Droplet Control (ADC™) for pipetting of volatile liquids, capacitive and pressure based level detection, tip detection and liquid class definitions.

Unlike the original ZEUS pipetting module, the ZEUS LT does not come with an integrated z-axis. Easy mounting hardware enables attachment to an existing XYZ system, or development of an application-specific z-axis to accommodate space constraints or other design considerations. Simple RS-232 or CAN commands combine with pressure and capacitance outputs for simple coordination of the pipette channel and the z-axis for liquid level detection, pipette tip following, and other coordinated movements.
