Benchtop Automation




ACell runs on your benchtop safely because upon impact the robot shuts down. With this safety feature, the need for protective shields is minimized; this keeps your equipment more accessible while minimizing the footprint of the overall robot cell.


ACell is small enough to use as a benchtop robot, and flexible enough for larger integrations with new or existing laboratory robotics. Put this microplate robot on a rail and you will be able to create a more complex lab robotics automation system. You can even add a MicroDock, to your ACell, allowing you to swap microplate robotics almost instantly, without having to reteach the automation robot and reconnect instruments.


ACell is quick to install and easy to integrate. ACell features fast delivery, quick setup, and simple robot teaching. Floating-robot teach mode allows you to teach the robot quickly by guiding the robot by hand into key positions and teach points to the robot at the touch of a button. Cellario, the most intuitive and powerful software available, runs the show. All these get your laboratory automation up and running quickly and without headaches.

ACell is a small footprint lab robot that will fit right in to your research lab. You’ll be accelerating your processes with robotic automation in no time.
