The MiniDevice Platform is an OEM product for medical technology and laboratory automation for handling liquids and samples. The MDPs are equipped with fast, low-friction axis systems and high-end control units. For liquid handling, up to four exchangeable heads (single or multi-channel) are available for the adaptation of our piston-driven precision dosing heads. The dispensing heads can be equipped with Teflon/steel dispensing needles (1µl, 10µl, 100µl), disposable tips suitable for automation (20µl, 50µl, 200µl 1000µl) or dosing systems for the sub-microlitre range (>100 nL). For sample preparation of comminuted/powdered solids we also provide individually developed powder dosing heads.
Depending on the application, the working deck or MDP tray can be individually configured with the desired number of 96/384/1536 MTP slots (SPS format) and with various holders and adapters for deep well blocks, tubes (5-50 ml) and microtubes 0.5, 1, 2 ml.
For the automation process in sample preparation we offer the following options:
- Washing stations
- external pump systems
- cooling/heating adapter
- heated/cooled MTP orbital shaker
- Magnetic Bead Station
- SPE vacuum station etc.
- Optional integration of UV-VIS-, FL- detection units (bottom read)
- biosensor technology
- microfluidics and other analytical measuring techniques
In the periphery of the MDP, additional storage locations, stackers or devices (e. g. capping/decapping station) can be integrated, which we can access via our gripper, 360° swivel arm or conveyor belt systems. This means that the MDP can be easily adapted to any laboratory routine and existing laboratory periphery.
Don't hesitate to let us know your specific ideas for your individual sample preparation. It is our interest to show you only a few examples and to develop and manufacture your individual sample preparation or instrument development together with you.
