Flexible Liquid Handling Workstations for Laboratory Automation

Reliable robotic pipetting for labs with medium to high sample throughputs

Innovative solutions for laboratory automation and liquid handling

Beckman Coulter’s liquid handling workstations and laboratory automation solutions help to increase walk-away time in medium to high throughput laboratories. During product development special attention was paid to simple and efficient handling as well as adaptability and reliability. A wide range of configuration options lets you find the right automation solution for any application. Integrated data management, auto-validation and automatic deck verification simplify sample and data processing and make programming and deck set-up errors things of the past.

Ultra-high throughput labs can benefit from the assay miniaturization capabilities of the Echo series with its unique ultrasound technology for nanoliter transfers.

Whatever your laboratory automation needs, Beckman Coulter has the solution.
