Laboratory research

The time factor plays a crucial role in research. Modern robot-assisted processes provide fast, reliable results in terms of automation of cell cultures, fixing of cells for high flow measurement methods or laboratory work such as sample handling and filling culture flasks.

Systems for a wide range of tasks

Experts specializing in automation have been developing ever more innovative robotic solutions for applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry as well as for scientific research. Using tabletop automation and compact cleanroom robots of the TX series, customer-oriented high-performance solutions can be realized within a confined space. These robots are the first choice for a variety of applications ranging from drug discovery to genotyping and from sample handling to High-Throughput Screening (HTS).

Automation in the hi-tech laboratory

More and more laboratory operators are going down the route of full automation to manage the steadily rising number of samples. In this particular laboratory – one of the world’s most advanced – thousands of samples are pipetted each day. The robotic systems in use facilitate the analysis of around 10,000 samples within a six-hour shift.
Six-axis robots from Stäubli are responsible for the handling of the micro titer plates between the various stations of the system. Accuracy and path-following behavior of the robot are vital criteria in laboratory analysis. To ensure error-free pipetting, the micro titer plates (MTPs) must be accurately positioned. The robots must be fast, but at the same time work meticulously. The Stäubli TX60 accomplishes these tasks with flying colors.

Accurate high speed robots being used to test possible cures for diseases, specifically for children.

Testing of possible cures for diseases

Accurate high speed robots having a tremendous impact on curing diseases in trial projects. Stäubli robots being used to test possible cures for diseases, specifically for children. The speed and the accuracy of testing potential cures become very important, when you or someone you care about is the patient waiting for such a cure. With over 7,000 diseases and only 500 known cures, the engineering and medical fields have come together to find a solution, robots. On a weekly basis robotic systems are performing millions of experiments that are faster and more accurate than possible by a human being. It would take a human being 12 years to do what a robot can do in one week.


The Laboratory Crystal® L1 Robot Line has been developed by Aseptic Technologies for filling pharmaceutical injectable drugs.

Aseptic filling of pharmaceutical drugs

The Laboratory Crystal® L1 Robot Line is a semi-automated equipment which has been designed to perform the aseptic filling of stability batches, clinical batches and niche products production of pharmaceutical injectable drugs in the Crystal® Closed Vials. The equipment can fill up to 600 vials per hour. Inside this enclosed isolator a TX60 stericlean is used.
