The Gilson/Cyberlab C-400 Automated Plate Preparation Workstation is a suitable high-throughput application workstation, accommodating 96-, 384-, and 1536-well microplates. In addition to pipetting, plate gripping, and moving capabilities, the

C-400 can interface with other laboratory equipment such as balances, mixers, incubators, plate sealers, washers, vacuum blocks, and plate readers.

The C-400 features a full-size head for use with standard and customised tools; includes 96-, 8-, and single-channel pipettors and a plate gripper for moving plates, tip boxes, and other items around the deck.

There are many optional tools available, including a 384-channel pipettor, tube and vessel gripper, capper/decapper, and plate piercer. Multiple tools are available for use at any time ­ there is no need to drop one tool off before picking up another.

The C-400 has the capability to handle 350 microplates as well as tip boxes. The custom deck layout facilitates the use of shallow- or deep-well microplates, disposable tips, tubes, and vials.
