Robot for Handling of Samples

The laboratory at the Department of Clinical Biochemistry receives approx. 8000 blood samples, and the number is increasing. 400 of these samples have to go on to another laboratory, and the staff struggles with reaching everything in time.


A robot that can sort and send the samples can relieve the staff so that they can concentrate on analysing the samples.


A robot for handling samples has been implemented in the laboratory at the Department Of Clinical Biochemistry. The robot receives the samples in racks and feed the samples to a machine that sends them further on in the system.
