The BumbleBee (patent pending) is an innovative sample handler designed to excel at the most complex sample transfer applications. Primarily designed to be integrated with BioNex Solution's Hive Automation Platform, the BumbleBee's independent channels and rotating sample translators enable fast, simultaneous picking-from and placing-into any location on the sample deck.
The BumbleBee can be configured with one to eight independent channels and multiple rotating sample translators, depending on the level of throughput required. For example, transfer of liquid samples from a source plate to a destination plate, any well to any well, can be continuously sustained with transfer rates as low as 3 seconds/sample. Source and destination plates can be changed on the fly during pipetting. This facilitates unheard of performance in hit picking or cherry picking samples in plate based applications.
