Mobile Collaborative Robots


Upgrade your laboratory with a robotic lab assistant 


Take a different approach to automation with mobile collaborative robots that connect both manual and automated processes.


Free scientists from repetitive tasks and increase productivity in your existing lab without changing the current infrastructure.

The Mobile Collaborative Robot utilises existing laboratory hardware, so it is an affordable way to bring automation into your laboratory.  Once in the laboratory the Mobile Laboratory Robot 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 Mobile Collaborative Robot, create a map, and teach the robot to interact with the hardware in a laboratory.  Once this is done UniteFlow software ensures that any member of the laboratory staff can set up a workflow to utilise the robot. 


It is straightforward to switch the Mobile Collaborative Robot between one workflow and another depending on demand.  If a completely different requirement arises, grippers can be swapped out and flasks, beakers or tubes could 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
  • See more specifications

Change the way you think about automation


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.
