There are a large number of devices that can be integrated to a liquid handing instrument in order to perform the assay. Proper selection, placement and integration are key to successful automation of the process.
Integration of automation devices may occur on an existing instrument, or when purchasing a used instrument from Konnis. If the device driver does not already exist one can be written. Drivers are delivered as executables to maintain flexibility and compatibility. The modular structure of our software and hardware components produce a very maintainable instrument.
