Hamilton Robotics Integrates Peak Robotics' KiNEDx Robots for Added Labware Movement Flexibility


1/20/2011 1:54:25 PM

Reno, Nevada (January 20, 2011) - Hamilton Robotics today announced a successful collaboration with Peak Robotics, Inc. (Colorado Springs, CO) to integrate the KiNEDx robot series with Hamilton's MICROLAB® STAR automated liquid handling workstation. The KiNEDx 4- and 5-axis robots increase the STAR's access to microplate samples and third-party devices. The dexterity of the fast KiNEDx robot enables access to deck positions and devices that cannot be reached with traditional labware grippers and even allows the plates to be tilted and flipped, for resuspension or shaking. Ideal applications include sample preparation, protein crystallization and ELISAs.

New software drivers allow the Hamilton MICROLAB VENUS software to control the KiNEDx arm by calling functions or through preprogrammed moves, and the user can easily make movement changes.

"We are pleased to partner with Hamilton Robotics to offer a wide range of automation solutions for customers in drug discovery, genomics and clinical diagnostics," commented Steve Cowles, business development manager for Peak Robotics. "Hamilton's extensive sales and distribution channels will expand our opportunities, particularly in Asia."

"This collaboration allows us to offer additional flexibility to our STAR customers," commented Scott Eaton, director of clinical and international sales for Hamilton Robotics. "The KiNEDx robot offers an impressive range of advanced functionality and is easy to program."

Peak Robotics manufactures robots and peripherals for life-science and medical-diagnostic applications. The company combines world-class engineering with state-of-the-art manufacturing to produce standard and special OEM products for its customers throughout the world.

Hamilton is a leading worldwide supplier of precision liquid handling equipment, laboratory automation and storage systems, serving customers in academic and private research laboratories, pharmaceutical and clinical diagnostic companies and governmental institutions. Hamilton maintains headquarters in Reno, Nevada and Bonaduz, Switzerland, both of which house R&D and production facilities. Hamilton has subsidiaries for direct sales and service in many countries and works with a wide distributor network in other regions. Hamilton is a privately held company.
