The Robotics Division of Hamilton Group, a leading innovator in laboratory automation,
develops and manufactures automated liquid handling instruments used in hospitals,
laboratories and other research institutions around the world.
Hamilton’s Venus software, developed from the new global hub, enables users to program
and control liquid handling instruments such as the Hamilton STAR, STAR V, VANTAGE
and Nimbus. In addition, Venus software optimizes the innovative MagPip pipetting
technology available on the STAR V and VANTAGE, which is capable of running volumes
between 350 nanoliters and 750 microliters and is designed to increase run speed.
The tools made by the Robotics division excel in automating multiple applications, both for
life sciences and analytical sciences: from genomics, cell biology, drug discovery
applications, nucleic acid extraction, automated PCR setup, blood fractionation, sample
preparation etc., to complex biobanking workflow solutions.
