Biomek i-Series Features

Focus on Science 

  • Bright, color-& pattern-coded status bar provides real-time instrument operation alerts
  • Light Curtain provides key safety feature during operation & method development
  • Internal LED light illuminates instrument deck for easy access & monitoring of your workspace status

Efficiency and Productivity 

  • Rotating gripper with offset finger design optimizes access to high-density decks for more efficient workflows
  • Linear motion control increases positional accuracy for pipetting access to high-density labware
  • Large-volume,1 mL multichannel pipetting head expedites sample transfers & enables more efficient mixing steps

Scale and Reach

  • With access from 4 directions— right, left, back & below—i-Series Workstations make it easy to integrate a growing menu of devices, components & accessories.
  • Grid-based deck with simple accessory installation enables quick workflow changes.
  • Spacious, open-platform design enables access from all sides for integration of adjacent-to-deck and off-deck processing elements such as analytical devices, external storage/incubation units & labware feeders

Reliability and Support

  • Safeguard sample & reagent integrity from air particulates with enclosed versions of Biomek i-Series Automated Workstations
  • Vertical sliding door on enclosure provides front access without aisle obstruction
  • Onboard cameras enable live broadcast & on-error video capture for faster response times & system diagnosis
  • Span-8 pipetting with independent probe calibration for volume transfers from 0.5 μL - 5,000 μL
