In the rapidly evolving field of life science research, the need for precision and efficiency has never been greater. Hudson’s lab automation systems are expertly designed for High Throughput Screening (HTS) applications, enabling the precise movement of SBS-standard microtiter™ plates within a workcell. These systems adeptly handle the placement and retrieval of microplates from stacks and nests within a variety of other devices, including liquid handlers, microplate readers, and incubators, crucial for life science research.

Our microplate handler robots seamlessly integrate with a wide range of third-party lab instruments. This compatibility allows for the creation of automated work cells that can handle various applications and protocols, regardless of their complexity, enhancing efficiency and precision in laboratory settings.
