Details The modular coreXY LabBot 3-D printer is set up to do fused filament fabrication. In the XY dimension it is around 35% larger then typical personal 3-D printers but it is designed to be adapted to extend the functionality (like from a FFF 3-D printer to a pipetter).
This is a coreXY positioning system that includes an 8 channel syringe pump and 8 servo driven 4-way valves. This pipetting tool can load, wash and eject multiple types of pipette tips. The bed is fixed but the pipettes move up and down using a stepper motor driven linear actuator.
The LabAutoBox while included in the system is a separate box from the LabBot which includes the microfluidics and control electronics.
