The increasing and growing need for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to speed up drug discovery and production is driving opportunities in the global laboratory automation market. This market will have reached $4.1 billion by 2015, according to Global Industry Analysts, Inc. As a solution provider to the industry, Global Innovation Network will debut the Delilah EMB dispenser at SLAS 2013. This multi-functional high accuracy and very quiet dispenser has the world’s smallest footprint. The liquid handling robot increases productivity compared to traditional solutions and saves space in clean rooms and on desk tops. It has a maintenance- free operation with no wearing parts in its dispensing module. It offers extremely accurate, high- speed dispensing of up to 40 doses per second from volumes of 50 nanoliters to 140 microliters. The electromagnetic bellows patented technology offers non-contact dispensing via air and no external pressure supply is required. With full, robotic compatibility the dispenser can transform high throughput screening operations by reducing reagent costs and improving efficiency.
