Dosing systems: automated sample handling

Liquid handling with modular dosing system

When handling liquids in laboratories, reliability, precision and compact dimensions are key. Festo offers all of this. Our dispense head consists of a manifold duct plate, dosing valves and nozzles and can be perfectly adapted to your specific requirements. Combining this with our handling system creates a ready-to-install complete solution which simplifies engineering and increases productivity.

High-precision dosing and positioning

Single- or multiple-channel dispense heads dispense different media with different pressure levels. During extraction, the vacuum and the position of the aspiration needles are precisely controlled.

Media separated solenoid valve VODA

  • Nominal widths (flanged connection): 0.4 ... 1.0 mm
  • Nominal widths (threaded connection): 2.0 ... 6.0 mm
  • Ideal for dispensing small amounts of fluid
  • Perfect for switching cleaning fluids and rinsing processes, for example

Proportional pressure regulating valve terminal VEMA

  • 8-channel pressure regulator
  • Output range: -0.5 … +0.5 bar
  • with digital CAN bus interface

The right handling system paves the way for a complete functional unit

We develop ready-to-install complete solutions with dosing technology and the matching kinematics in line with your requirements – for dosing and pipetting liquids, e.g. for dilutions, adding nutrient solutions or for dispensing reagents into microwell plates.
