The customer-inspired Hermes 24/7 establishes a new standard for simplicity and compactness in completely automated, image-based experimentation.

IDEA Bio-Medical’s in-house expertise in areas of precision machine design, manufacture and software development enabled the creation of the Hermes 24/7 fully automated sample-manipulator and high content imaging system.

In designing the new Hermes 24/7 automated system, they aimed to empower labs to utilize existing infrastructure to expand their capabilities while minimizing the amount of valuable lab space occupied.

With push-button programming the system autonomously:

  • Incubates plates in a built-in plate stacker which accommodates up to 20 plates under incubation conditions (37ºC, 5% CO2)
  • Loads & unloads plates for imaging
    All external sources supported –Incubators, stackers, liquid handlers
  • Acquires high quality images on the WiScan® Hermes automated high content screening system
  • Analyzes acquired images using WiSoft® Athena automated image analysis software
  • Produces presentation-ready results using multiple visualization tools (scatter plots, histograms, heat maps, time graphs, dose curves, etc.)
