Building Blocks

The Synchronlab product range includes a cross-section of building blocks which can be used to create your optimal Lab system. These building blocks have been designed around the needs of and the feedback from, our customers. All elements show the Synchron trademarks of ease of handling and efficiency of design. We continue to add to our building blocks in response to our customers requirements. Some examples :

Icoon_CappingDecapping Capping and Decapping
Decapping your sample tubes is a mind numbing and laborious job when working with medium- and high-throughput protocols. The Xperimate liquid handler can cap and decap almost any kind of tube, also avoiding the risk of sample contamination.

 

Icoon_DisposableTips 5&10ml Disposable tip
In line with the unlimited volume range, it is also possible to use high volume disposable tips. We can offer you 5ml disposable tips, both conductive and non-conductive and have recently developed a 10ml non-conductive disposable tip application. Perfect for your large volume applications.
Icoon_Optical Optical Recognition
Optical recognition, or vision technology, can help you automate any color or shape recognition protocols, like separating serum from blood and micro bacterial inhibition tests. This vision technology is developed in-house and is custom-made.

 

Icoon_GravimetricDosing Gravimetric dosing
In addition to the powder dispensing unit, we are also able to offer you gravimetric dosing for both liquids and solids. The gravimetric dosing is closely monitored by the Gravidos software which reports back to the Xperimate software.
Icoon_Filtration SPE – Positive Displacement
Vacuum filtration is a widely used MTP filtration technique. Besides this technique, we can now offer you a positive pressure filtration unit for 8 wells at a time. All 8 filtration channels work on a individual base, ensuring you the best results.

 

Icoon_Filtration Filtration-Positive Pressure
Vacuum filtration is a widely used MTP filtration technique. Besides this technique, we can now offer you a positive pressure filtration unit for 8 wells at a time. All 8 filtration channels work on a individual base, ensuring you the best results.
Iccon_HeatingCooling Heating and cooling
Next to the standard heating and cooling devices like Peltier elements and water cooled decktrays, the Xperimate is able to work under cooled conditions. Laminar flow cabinets can also be provided.

 

Icoon_MixingHomogenizing Mixing/Homogenising
Mixing and/or homogenising can be done in several ways. For example, it can be done by using magnetic stirrers underneath the deck of the Xperimate or by  integrating the unique Covaris technique.
Icoon_PowderDispensing Powder dispenser
The power of the Synchron Powder dispenser lies in the compact form factor of the machine and the possibility to dose multiple types of powders with different  dosing strategies.
Icoon_Corrosion Corrosion Resistance
For handling your corrosive fluids we are able to offer you corrosion resistant coating and flow cabinets that prevent the aggresive fumes affecting your electronics. Also we can supply you with custom-made hardware made out of all sorts of corrosion resistance materials.

 

Icoon_Barcode Barcode control
Synchron offers a wide range of integrated barcode readers to ensure sample tracking throughout you automated process. It is even possible to read a barcode on the cap of a tube, by fixing a barcode reader to the Xperimate’s gripper.
Icoon_MicroAnnular Micro-annular-gear-pump
Unlike most other liquid handlers, the Synchron Xperimate uses a micro gear pump instead of syringe pumps. This  technique enables you to use a large variety of fluids, in an unlimited volume range starting from 1µl.
