Our references

As system integrator Lab Services has built a various number of applications with all type of sophisticated instruments in inter alia, the Pharma, Food, CropScience and Animal Health industry. The PlateButler® references below show only a selection of the wide range of applications with medium to high throughput screening applications.
Next Generation Screening Platforms

High Troughput Screening in Antibody Lead Discovery

The High throughput screening facility consists of multiple robotic systems:

  • One platform for fully automated colony picking / cell sorting
  • Three robotic platforms: One for scheduled inoculation and induction of expression cultures, two for screening assays for up to two hundred 384 or 1536 well plates per run
  • One robotic platform for flexible non standardized screening workflows

Main features:
Speed: Circular, compact hardware array using robotic arms with increased reach and height; reduced moving times
Keep costs under control: Re-use existing devices; incremental cost model for upcoming integrations
Keep devices accessible: Devices on drawers to allow maintenance and stand alone work while keeping the small footprint; sliding doors to keep safety regulations; integrated tailored data handling
Keep complexity low: Use the same software and automation core on all platforms; robotic arm with easy teaching function; use the same robotic arm on all platforms
Flexible for immediate needs: devices on trolleys; span 8 pipetting for non plate based operations; sufficient space for future implementations. 


Integration of PCR equipment

PlateButler® LidLifter for the integration of 10 SensoQuest LabCyclers

This relates to a custom-made solution for automating very delicate lids of PCR equipment in a series of 10 devices. For this, we designed the LidLifter, which meets the following objectives:

  • provides the ability to automate equipment that does not feature this option as a standard
  • replaces the delicate lid by a robust version that frequently can be opened and closed without showing wear

More information regarding the LidLifter can be found here.
