Thermos Fisher Scientific and FANUC Robotics launch laboratory robot

25th January 2008

Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed the new Thermo Scientific F5 articulated robot with FANUC Robotics America.

According to the serving science company, the F5 has been purpose-built for drug discovery applications utilising FANUC’s expertise in industrial robotics and its own extensive knowledge of laboratory automation.

The new product features a "state-of the-art" six axis articulated robot to laboratory automation and a linear track to service more instrumentation over larger working areas.

A compact controller, coupled with integrated lab-orientate software, provides an increasingly reliable performance and enhanced speed movement of any plate type and consumable.

Monette Greenway, president of integrative technologies at Thermo Fisher Scientific, said: "Our collaboration with FANUC Robotics enabled us to improve the way industrial robots are deployed in a laboratory environment and provides many benefits for our customers.

"We’re able to provide an exceptional articulated robot that is designed for laboratory automation from a single source, resulting in faster integration and superior long-term performance."
