Liquid Handlers

Biomek 4000 Automated Workstation

Your gateway from manual to automated pipetting.

The Biomek 4000 is a low-throughput liquid handling system ideal for smaller laboratories and/or those new to automation. Its compact platform helps standardize your daily pipetting routines, helping to ensure quality samples and results. By providing consistent sample preparation, the Biomek 4000 gives you time and peace of mind to focus on other tasks.

Features & Specifications

The Biomek 4000 features easy-to-use, icon-driven software and a library of ready-to-run methods. Configure the instrument to your specifications and choose from a wide range of components to build your optimal solution:
 
  • Precise pipetting from 1 μl - 1000 μl for single- and 8-channel configurations
  • Off-deck mounts, such as the tool rack and liquid waste station, expand your capacity without increasing system footprint
  • Wash Tool allows bulk dispensing and aspiration anywhere within a well and performs tip touches for clean transfers
  • AccuFrame is a fully automated deck framing tool, providing three-dimensional positioning accuracy
  • Biomek 4000 Integration Deck enables third party device integrations
  • Enclosure shields your samples from potential laboratory contaminants
  • Heating, cooling, and shaking Automated Labware Positioners (ALPs)
  • Below deck storage frees up lab space
  • Benchtop instrument
