Automation in the laboratory:
kinematic systems for specimen handling


Ready-to-install modules support the automation of specimen preparation,

from identifying and checking the specimen carriers to opening and closing specimen containers and adding liquids to microplates – with solutions from Festo analysis applications can be realised in very compact spaces.


Everything from a single source,

from creating and developing concepts to delivering subsystems
