Specialist services

Our team can apply automation to your currently labour-intensive laboratory processes. Some applications we have automated are:


Fully customised systems to run any ELISA protocol in high throughput mode to save time, money and increase assay reproducibility.

Cell-based studies

Automated liquid handling in fully contained biosafety cabinets. These cabinets contain 96 and 384-head pipetting into 6/24/96/384- well plates as well as integrated CO2 incubators, plate washers and readers (absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence and alphaLISATM) with >500 plate capacity.

Automated sample preparation

Perform flexible liquid handling in a variety of formats: 96/384-well plate, microarray slides and tubes or vials. 

Solid phase extraction (SPE) of biological samples 

Automated SPE of analytes from plasma, urine, saliva etc. in 96-well plate format.

Compound library management

Plate replication, sample dilution and custom arrays with your compound library.

Automated tube labelling

Custom labels for a variety of tubes. Labels can include barcodes, text, logos and images.

Automated cell expansion and cryopreservation

A variety of plate formats available, an automated cell culture approach can significantly reduce the risk of contamination.


Our team has a wealth of experience in areas such as assay automation, high-throughput screening and sample management in an academic and industry setting. We work with customers to get the best automated solution.
