Laboratory automation: handling of samples

Laboratory automation

Modular solutions for every task

From identifying and checking the sample carriers to opening and closing sample vials and adding liquids to microwell plates. With solutions from Festo, customized applications for sample preparation can be realized in very compact spaces.

Solutions that stand up to any process

We help you expand your toolbox of solutions for laboratory automation with an extensive library of perfectly matched components for sample handling and fluid control. Our engineering team works to meet your specific requirements, delivering high-quality, accurate results.

Do you have all the engineering bandwidth and technology you need to support the ever-increasing throughput and reduced development time your customers demand? The pace of business is accelerating and customer expectations have reached unprecedented levels. We offer a wide range of industry standard components that are well-proven in laboratory use. In addition, we also have the design and engineering capacity to provide customized automation solutions tailored precisely to the needs of your customers. We work together with you to deliver intelligent, tested subsystems with perfectly matched components. The results: a faster time to market.

The modular system solutions operate quickly, accurately, consistently and efficiently, while the results of the automated processes are always reproducible and verifiable. The degree of automation can be flexibly adapted to your individual requirements.

As a result, everything from single process steps to linking complex individual processes can be automated. We provide you with everything from a single source: from conceptualization and joint development to the delivery of subsystems.

Gripping, opening and dispensing

The extremely compact rotary gripper module EHMD is ideal for applications in laboratory automation such as opening and closing a wide variety of small sample vials. In combination with a gripper and handling system, it becomes a ready-to-install complete solution.

PGVA pressure and vacuum generator

The decentralized pressure and vacuum generator PGVA only requires a 24 V power supply to to provide compressed air for your pressure or vacuum-assisted solution.

  • Integrated compressor
  • Flexible in use
  • Easy to integrate
  • Easy to operate and configure
