Automation components

Special components

AM Robotic Systems develops specialised components for use in automated systems.  These are designed for specific applications when suitable standard components are not available.


Powered items typically utilise stepper motors, DC motors or brushless DC motors and are supplied with the necessary control electronics.


Some examples are:

Automated reagent trough

An actuated lid is integrated into a liquid handling step to minimise risk of contamination of a sterile reagent.

Ultrasonic level detection system

To position a robot relative to a liquid level using a proprietary ultrasonic sensor.

Disposable tip sensor

Designed to fit into a small space to monitor the presence of a disposable tip on a liquid handling robot.



See video of reagent trough.





Gripper tool for de-capping

Enables plate gripper to pick up tubes and de-cap them. See video.
