The Protean™ Workcell is completely flexible and can be configured to house up to 9 levels of instrument space. This allows the system the flexibility to change with your changing needs.
The core of the system is a SciClops™ Plus robotic arm, an extended vertical reach robot that provides multi levels of instrument access and the ability to quickly and easily teach microplate positions using its unique teach-assist vision system. Standard configurations of the core also include 5 microplate stacks and a barcode reader. The core can be equipped with an optional Microplate Stacking Carousel Storage System that facilitates robotic access to hundreds of microplates, tip boxes and reservoirs.
The Hudson Robotics Protean™ Workcell is a creative and cost-effective high-density workcell designed to save laboratory space and increase productivity. Leaving a tabletop behind, the Protean™ Workcell conserves valuable laboratory square footage by utilizing the vertical space above and below what a traditional table surface would provide. Flexibility of design allows the automation of unique high-throughput workflows and the ability to quickly and easily reconfigure the workcell for new protocols as laboratory requirements evolve.
The Protean Workcell is:
- Flexible – Arrays 1, 2 or 3 nodes around the Core.
- Space Saving – Utilizes the vertical space above and below a traditional table surface.
- Accurate – The unique teach-assist vision system quickly and easily teaches microplate positions.
- Expandable – Create up to 9 levels of instrument space.
Design A Workcell That Meets Your Needs
The modular design of the Protean™ Workcell and the ability to optically self-teach microplate positions makes it easy to quickly switch instruments in the existing footprint. Nodes are equipped with wheels, so they can easily be added, removed or reconfigured.
