Biomek FXᴾ Automated Workstation

No Longer Available for Purchase

The Biomek FXP Laboratory Automation Workstation product line is no longer available for purchase. This applies to all instrument configurations including:

  • Biomek FXP Single Arm System and Single Multichannel Pipettor (A31842)
  • Biomek FXP Single Arm System with Span-8 Pipettor (A31843)
  • Biomek FXP Dual Arm System, Multichannel Pipettor and Span-8 Pipettors (A31844)
  • Biomek FXP Dual Arm System with Dual Multichannel Pipettors (A31845)

We will continue to provide full service support to our Biomek FXP customers. This includes the consumables and supplies, service and maintenance, training, hardware accessories, device integrations, and software extensions that maximize the utilization of your existing instruments. One such example is the recently released Biomek 4.2 software that enables Windows® 10 functionality for Biomek FXP instruments.

Since the introduction of the Biomek 1000 over 30 years ago, Beckman Coulter has continued to innovate new automation solutions to accelerate scientific discoveries. The Biomek i-Series—with improved capacity, flexibility and usability—represents the latest step in this evolution. Most existing Biomek methods can be adapted to the new i-Series Workstations, and we’re confident you’ll benefit from the new platform enhancements if you choose to upgrade to an i-Series workstation, like the Biomek i5, the Biomek i7, or an integrated system.
