From Concept To Completion

The mini-flex workstation provides similar functionality in a smaller package for less demanding applications. The workstation can provide liquid handling or powder handling technology. The foundation of the workstation is based upon a dual arm robot which allows both plate handling and liquid handling to be carried out over a common bed. This robot is integrated with other equipment and technology to form the overall mini-flex workstation product.
