High Throughput Drug Discovery Screening
A large international drug company needed a high-throughput drug discovery system that could accommodate a multitude of simultaneous processes. It was required to handle microtiter plates with heavy stainless steel lids. Typical robots working in drug discovery were laboratory type robots on long linear tracks. These robots had light payloads, were less than rugged, and slow.

Technical Capabilities Involed:

  • software data integration
  • robotics integration
  • vision applications
  • material handling solutions
  • dispense applications
  • inspection testing
