RoboBlot TM - Full and Semi Automation for Western Blot and Hybridisation Strips

Optional heated or non-heated instrument for automating strip based assays to suit your requirements.

Our new generation instrument uses our own electronics based on the CANbus system, and Virtual Gearbox for fast and quiet operation of the axis. Each axis has his own microprocessor, which are programmable via USB. Each microprocessor is connected to each other via one small ribbon cable, limiting the wiring, and allowing for ease of maintenance.

Complete automation of strip assays - from sample preparation to image capture
• Walk-Away: Full automation from sample to scanning
• Convenience: Integrated Drying, 48 - 50 strips in one run
• Safety: Barcode-Identification and LIMS connectivity
• Flexibility: Combination of different assays and conjugate classes
• Space saving: Integrated camera for scanning
• User friendly: Minimal maintenance operations necessary
• Minimised dead volume to save precious reagents
• No cross-contamination with disposable tips for sample preparation

Third party interpretation software available upon request.

B20 TM - Semi Automation for low Throughput Laboratories

Optional heated or non-heated instrument for automating strip based assays to suit your requirements.
Once samples have been added manually, the instrument can run up to 12 different pre-programmed assays, for automating molecular based and Western Blot strip based assays.

The instrument uses reversible peristaltic pumps to dispense reagents to the sample tray, and optionally from the software, the pumps can be reversed to save reagent back into the reagent bottles. The tray for the samples and membrane strips allows for rocking, tilting and level position during incubation. The operator interface is via a keypad and display. Once the samples have been added to the tray the assay is automated, and the developed strips in the tray can be removed for the analysis of the strips by eye, or using Bee's AutoCam 48 to offer automated scanning, and interpretation using third party software.

micro b processor TM - Fully-Automated Microarray processor

Fully automated instrument for microarray processing.
Practical and easy to use microplate processor, which offers advanced heating and cooling to within +/- 1.0 degree centigrade or better per well for standard sciPLEXPLATE 96 from Scienion or compatible microplates.The system can potentially accommodate both clear and white plates, ask for details.

A special incubator provides shaking with an overhead heater to minimise evaporation for low volumes.

Liquid handling is performed via four micro-stepping controlled piston pumps, with tip picking and separate aspirating needles for washing the wells. The microplate is automatically tilted for aspiration to avoid touching the microarray at the bottom of the well during aspiration.

An integral camera can image the wells at the end of the assay and save the images in various formats for interpretation by third party software. The camera system can be set up to image from above or below the microplate well.

Pre-heating or cooling is provided for the sample plate and reagents as required. Also on the deck there is a position for the disposable tips, waste, and tip waste basket.

The operator interface is via a 12" touchscreen and user friendly software where the operator can select various assays to run on the instrument.

There is an integral industrial PC which allows for connection to LIMS

About us

Company details

Bee Robotics Ltd., established in 1999, firstly developed an instrument for strip hybridisation and washing specifically for a reputable worldwide supplier of reagents for HLA tissue genotyping. Bee Robotics Ltd. now supplies numerous partners with instruments ranging from semi to full automation for Western and Molecular Blot strip assays, microarray processing and DNA extraction. During 2014 Bee has taken on two graduates to enhance our software capabilities and focus on manufacturing efficiencies. A true partner for all your automation requirements, using our well proven technology. To date, Bee Robotics has supplied in excess of 1000 instruments for applications in histocompatibility testing, allergy testing and detection of infectious diseases.

This success has stemmed from an ability to respond rapidly and effectively, customising core products to meet individual reagent supplier demands in method protocols as well as designing and manufacturing bespoke automation for individual needs.

Combining their collective experience of industrial electronics, robotics, low level software, Graphical User Interface and Computer Aided Design, the executive directors, Steve Jones and Alwyn Morus are well positioned to steer the company to develop their product range and to respond to a rapidly moving market.

Bee Robotics has a Quality Management System has been approved by Lloyds Quality Assurance to the following standards ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485:2003, EN ISO 13485:2012 applicable to design and manufacture of automated liquid handling robotic instrumentation for in vitro diagnostic applications.
