Xantus is a modular robotic pipetting platform, combining flexible liquid handling with robotic manipulation of microplates and other devices. With all functionality, including the pumps, housed in the arm, Xantus design simplifies both system integration and stand-alone robotic automation. Integrating modules such as shakers, heaters, vacuum modules and the Ixion robot friendly microplate centrifuge can expand Xantus functionality. Xantus features include:
Open geometry facilitates integration with off-deck modules, conveyors etc.
Unique compact low maintenance pump system resides in the robotic arm, leaving the deck free for application samples and modules, and simplifies integration projects
Pipetting volume 1ul to 1ml using the same pump, with excellent precision
Customization according to footprint, X-range, arm configuration, functional modules and software
Easy to use GUI drag-and-drop application software and/or DLL/COM-object software
By selecting from a wide range of robotic modules, functional “Plug and Play” modules, options and accessories, you can customize your Xantus to suit the evolving needs of your laboratory. And in most cases you can change the configuration in the future by upgrading.
DESIGN YOUR OWN PIPETTING ARM
Up to 8 tips per arm
Flexispan = individual Y and Z movement
Individual level sensors
Interchangeable washable and disposable tips.
Separate arm, same X-slide
Software controlled for safety and efficiency
270° rotating microplate gripper: turn a plate for cross pipetting, improved access to other modules on or off the deck
Increase deck capacity by stacking plates
Increase efficiency by moving plates between functional modules: incubators, coolers, shakers, readers and washers, thermocycler,
vacuum assembly, centrifuge etc.
3 standard X-ranges, and 3 standard deck widths (approx. 100 cm, 150 cm and 200 cm)
