Hive Laboratory Automation Platform
Maximize the use of vertical space in your lab
The Hive Laboratory Automation platform’s innovative, patented design uses vertical space to facilitate the integration of a large number of instruments and consumable storage in a relatively small footprint,, thus saving valuable lab space. The modular design of the Hive platform allows direct, forward-facing access to all components for easy labware loading and unloading, daily maintenance, and periodic servicing.
Compact, versatile and expandable
The unique design of the Hive allows use of the entire workspace, including above-and below-deck spaces. It facilitates compact system integration of BioNex instruments with third-party devices without compromising performance. Most devices face the front of the platform for easy offline use and serviceability. Not limited to a specific size, the Hive can be expanded to integrate multiple or larger devices.
Adding simultaneous-access storage allows plates and consumables to be loaded and unloaded during runs, eliminating traditional deck resetting time. One side of the storage module is dedicated to the Hive robotic arm while the other can be loaded by an operator or with BeeSmart KartsTM, which are manually loaded at sample and consumable labs/stores remote from the Hive. Loaded Karts are driven to the Hive and docked for material transfer. The storage module is fully customizable for any combination of plate types and consumables at any capacity.
The HD Stack labware stacker provides high density stacked storage in a small footprint.
Bee Smart Kart
Easy and reliable mobile plate storage for moving consumables between systems during or in between protocol runs.
The Labware Carousel provides fast and reliable random access storage and can be configured with an integrated barcode reader.
Simultaneous-access storage allows plates and consumables to be loaded and unloaded during protocol runs
