- Liquid handling robot
A Liquid handling
robotis used in automationof chemicalor biochemicallaboratories. It is a machinethat dispenses a selected quantity of reagent, samples or other liquid to a designated container. The simplest machine simply dispenses an allotted volumeof liquidfrom a motorized pipetteor syringe, and more complicated machines can also manipulate the position of the dispensers and containers (often a Cartesian coordinate robot) and/or integrate additional laboratory devices (such as centrifuges and microplate readers).
