Prime is more than simply an automated liquid handler. Its built-in collaborative robot and advanced scheduling/controls software allow it to function as a system in of itself. Like other liquid handlers, it can be used either on its own, or as part of a large integrated robotic system. Unlike other liquid handlers, it can also act as the central backbone of a smaller integration. Prime’s collaborative robot can then move labware between the deck, storage, and various other devices on carts surrounding Prime, making it simply the most integration-friendly liquid handler on the market.
The Prime was designed to be as visually open as possible while protecting users from the robotics inside. Proper ergonomics were critical to make manual loading and unloading of labware safe and easy for techs of all sizes.
But PI’s involvement was more than just skin deep. Our team developed the overall system architecture and initial motion control system, collaborating with outside OEMs to customize actuators and components to meet HRB’s unique specifications. PI validated the design through a series of subsystem mock-ups as well as a full functional prototype.
With this highly cooperative approach, Highres Biosolutions was able to leverage PI’s R&D and engineering capabilities to jump start an ambitious new program without tying up their internal resources.
