​​BlueBench: Compact, user friendly and modular benchtop automation for BlueWasher and other stand-alone instruments

 Cell-friendly dispensers for 96, 384 &1536 well plates

BlueCatBio’s BlueBench solution brings the benefits of collaborative robots to scientists’ (cramped) benchtops.  Comprising a user friendly software interface, collaborative robot, modular base plate, stacks, and hotels, BlueBench automates plate handling for the BlueWasher and other stand-alone instruments such as plate readers, dispensers, and incubators – directly on the work bench, with minimal footprint.  The versatility of the robotic arm and grippers allows handling stacked, lidded, or sealed plates in any configuration.
The award-winning BlueWasher uses centrifugation instead of aspiration for non-contact and contamination-free removal of liquids from all plate formats, including 1536 well. It achieves near zero residual volume and eliminates problems associated with conventional, aspiration-based washers. The BlueWasher reduces assay background and variability, eliminates wash steps and needle clogging, while increasing throughput, reliability and saving consumable cost with tipless media-changes in cell-based screening and magnetic bead wash applications.
