Handling Non-Standard Sample Plates

Handling Non-Standard Sample Plates

While Hudson’s PlateCrane and LabLinx excel in managing SBS-standard microplates within multi-component workcells, our versatility extends far beyond industry norms. Discover our array of accessories designed to manipulate various non-standard “plates,” unlocking new possibilities for your laboratory workflows.

Key Features:

  1. Microscope Slide Compatibility: Our accessories accommodate microscope slides, both with and without slide carriers, facilitating seamless integration into your experimental setups.
  2. Diverse Plate Support: From petri dishes to Ion Torrent Chips, Illumina PCR Plates, Fludigm chips, and Forte Bio Sensor Holders, we provide solutions for a wide range of non-standard sample plates.

Experience Seamless Integration:

Hudson Robotics enables you to harness the full potential of your laboratory instrumentation. With our versatile accessories, you can optimize workflows, enhance experimental flexibility, and unlock new avenues for research and discovery.


In the following example, we carry multiple slides in an SBS compliant container and use a standard PlateCrane Gripper. The video shows the PlateCrane feeding Inova Diagnostics’ Nova Viewer IFA microscope system.
