"The new Nimbus Liquid Handler from Hamilton Robotics comes with the Instinct software. This makes method development intuitive with the help of wizards. Advantages Proven technology from Hamilton STAR with air displacement channels Easy software with methods able to call information from work list Small footprint Faster than Hamilton’s STAR platform Excellent safety by closed cabinet Advanced users can program in the Venus software Wishes & Improvements Website to share methods and discuss challenges with user community None-reflective gals for front window Optimize channel use when using work list Bundle existing methods into a new method to obtain more complex workflows Slow 3D animation "

"The Nimbus is very easy to use. Once you are familiar with the Venus software, it is straightforward to program. There is some limitation in application due to the limited pedestals, which does not exist on the STAR line of instruments. However, the liquid handling is exactly the same as the STAR instruments, ensuring good accuracy and precision."

"This is a great liquid handler for 96 well plate applications. It takes some set up for the liquid classes but well worth it and lots of user control with easy to use control steps."

"The system is good for small tubes. It has a small footprint that can easily fit into a hood. The software can be easily applied to many applications and is not difficult to use. The drawback of a small system is that it cannot be used for big containers or large glass vials. But this may be modified in future to be used for 3-10 mL vials."

"Small footprint for easy integration into projects in a lab setting. The firmware development was a little behind in supporting all functionalities of the instrument. Great customer support for script development."
