Flexible Benchtop Automation Platform

May 4, 2010
Centered around the new Orbitor microplate mover and powered by the vendor’s Momentum 2.0 laboratory workflow software, a new platform for benchtop automation offers highly advanced user control and standardized real-time, data-driven decision making. 
This combination of robotics, peripherals and scheduling software is well-suited to small, flexible, automated systems or dedicated benchtop applications. As a central mover with the ability to rotate 360 degrees, the Orbitor can connect a broad range of scientific devices. The Momentum 2.0 software facilitates predictive modeling of accelerated dynamic processing schedules, eliminating a common compromise between efficient automation usage and unpredictable system behavior. Equipped with error management, as well as simple process design and validation, Momentum 2.0 ensures robust automation control, says the vendor.Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. www.thermofisher.com781.622.1000
