Hamilton Robotics News July

Press Release   •   Jul 08, 2014 13:04 GMT


The Microlab NIMBUS is a compact, multi-channel automated liquid
handler, offering speed, flexibility, ease-of-use and superior pipetting performance
at a surprisingly affordable price. NIMBUS comes available in a highly
configurable base platform:

· NIMBUS 2/4: 2 or 4 pipetting 1000ul pipetting channels

· NIMBUS96: 96-channel multi-pipetting head (MPH)

Integrated options, intuitive software and the backing of
Hamilton’s renowned service and applications support makes the NIMBUS an
indispensable tool for budget and space-constrained labs. Using proven air
displacement pipetting, NIMBUS offers the same liquidhandling performance as higher end systems, yet at a fraction of the price.

· high pipetting accuracy and precision

· low/medium throughput

· small footprint

· affordability

Instinct Software

INSTINCT features several tools to enhance the end-user experience:

· Labware Library – a comprehensive menu of commercially available
microplates, deep well plates, reagent troughs/tubs as well as the complete
line of Hamilton’s CO-RE disposable tips

· Favorites Tool - enables quick selection of your most
commonly-used labware

· Liquid Class Tuner – an easy to use utility for selecting
optimal pipetting parameters and improved liquid handling performance

· 3-D Viewing – an intuitive tool for visualizing deck layouts

Smart pipetting

· Combining these preferences together with other user-defined
input (e.g. pipetting volume), INSTINCT’s built-in intelligence provides:

· Automated deck layouts – auto-populates the pipetting deck with
carriers, microplates/tubes and tips, making setup of deck layouts a snap

· Automated tip tracking – tracks tip usage, location and status
of tip racks

· Smart plate movements – auto-transporting of labware to
destination or waste locations


For programming, INSTINCT software features a series of
dedicated Wizards available for commonly performed pipetting routines, each
guiding you step-by-step towards final method creation.

· Serial Dilutions

· Reagent Additions

· Plate Replications

· Tube to Plate

· PCR set-up


· And many more...
