PlateButler® TipHotel: flexible solutions for storing tips

In applications such as Hit-Picking, Cherry-Picking and re-arraying as well as others, tip management is always an important facet of the automation process. How to store enough tips for large batches of plates and how to get them on the deck of the liquid handler?

 When high-throughput tip dispensing via the PlateDispenser becomes too excessive, the PlateButler® TipHotel will be suitable for you. Especially when the tips need to be kept sterile. This device provides ambient robot-friendly storage of tips and is known for the optimal use of the available bench top capacity. The PlateButler® TipHotel is available for different brands of tips. The tips are stored in independent slots and have no contact with the surfaces. This makes the PlateButler® TipHotel perfect for sterile applications.

 The PlateButler® TipHotel has as major advantage that it can have any height as necessary, as long as it is reachable for the PlateButler® robotic arm, saving bench top surface by leaving out an additional hotel. The desired distance between the drawers is made to measure, ensuring the PlateButler® TipHotel is suitable for different tip types and heights.
