Hamilton VANTAGE™ Robotic workstation released to early-access customers

After years of research and development, Hamilton Robotics is releasing its XRP prototype to the marketplace as the Hamilton VANTAGE. Hamilton’s newest liquid handler offers many benefits to satisfy a broad range of customers and applications. The fully enclosed platform features contact-free NanoPulse™ pipetting technology covering a large volume range (100 nL – 1 mL). Resource-optimized, dynamic scheduling software increases workflow efficiency, while advanced labware detection, identification, and verification provide complete system and sample traceability. The vertically integrated VANTAGE system maximizes space through innovative, high-capacity tip and plate shuttling from below the pipetting deck. Efficient, flexible transportation via a telescoping gripper and below-deck third-party devic e integration also help minimize the footprint and support the modular and expandable system architecture. Finally, wireless tablets with multi-touch capabilities serve as virtual workspaces for remote access and location-free monitoring of the VANTAGE system, increasing walk-away time and productivity.

The Hamilton VANTAGE platform now being sold to early-access customers and is scheduled to launch globally in the autumn of 2013. For more information, please contact a local sales manager.
