Robotic Lab Assistant

    Take a different approach to automation with our Robotic Lab Assistant that connects both manual and automated processes. Free scientists from repetitive tasks and increase productivity in your existing lab without changing the current infrastructure. Rather than automating individual elements or processes in the traditional fixed way, a mobile robot moves between your existing equipment and can even integrate manual tasks into a repeatable, traceable and efficient automated workflow. Less costly than other forms of automation, offering great value for the functions and efficiencies it provides. Not as complex as you might think to set up and control, with intuitive programming and friendly workflow software. More flexible than traditional automation, with each robot capable of performing multiple tasks and learning new ones.


    Robotic Lab Assistant® Benefits

    • Keep your lab running during evenings and weekends
    • Transport samples across laboratories
    • Affordable, easy to operate, deployed quickly and controlled from any device
    • Invest more time in science instead of routine work
    • Reduce mistakes and training costs
    • Utilise laboratories and instruments 24/7


    The Robotic Lab Assistant utilises existing laboratory hardware, so it is an affordable way to bring automation into your laboratory. Once in the laboratory the Robotic Lab Assistant will give you access to 24/7 operation, allowing you to break free from the traditional 9-5 routine.


    It is simple and straightforward to set up the Robotic Lab Assistant, create a map, and teach the robot to interact with the hardware in a laboratory. Once this is done, using a SiLA 2 based workflow scheduler (such as LabExpert®) ensures that any member of the laboratory staff can set up a workflow to utilise the robot.


    It is straightforward to switch the Robotic Lab Assistant between one workflow and another depending on demand. Grippers can be swapped out and flasks, beakers or tubes can be handled as well as SBS plates.

    • Mobile base with long battery life that can turn in tight spaces

    • Autonomous navigation based on technology used across industry

    • Customisable housing can have built in storage for multiple plates

    • Collaborative robot with multi-axis arm provides full range of motion

    • Camera and computer vision system for precise localisation

    • Grippers capable of handling delicate tubes and plates


    Robotic Lab Assistant® Features

    • Vision System - Guides the robot arm allowing precision pick up of small components and collaborative working with laboratory staff
    • Storage - Transport multiple items such as additional plates and modify to suit your needs
    • Grippers - As standard the grippers are capable of picking up small items of lab equipment such as tubes and plates with ease
    • Mobile Platform - Established autonomous mobile technology with smart sensing that allows the robot to navigate around objects or even moving people
    • Robot Arm - Multi-axis robotic arm allows 360º operation so there is no restriction on gripper positioning
    • Easy to Use - You’ll find teaching the robot new tasks surprisingly easy. Create workflows and schedule tasks with LabExpert®
