Multi-CHOT Liquid Handling Station MultiChot
The new Multi-CHOT from Nichiryo is a versatile and compact X-Y-Z robotic system suitable for a wide range of liquid handling tasks. The design of the work table allows many different vessels and tubes to be accommodated in a variety of orientations. A wide range of dispense heads is available and can be easily interchanged.

The included GUI (Graphic User Interface) software makes protocol writing very simple on a PC. The protocol can then be stored in the instrument’s memory allowing stand-alone operation.

The Multi-CHOT offers outstanding flexibility that is often only available in larger expensive, robotic systems. It is a compact and cost effective solution to many specialist complex liquid handling operations.
