Kx-2 Robot, 500mm Height
With 360° continuous rotation of the shoulder and wrist axes and a multi-link arm, the KX-2 offers extensive reach for effective use of the available space. The radial compactness of the KX-2 arm, combined with a wide reach, allows easy instrument accessibility and optimal instrument placement, leading to improved instrument density, easy serviceability and increased throughput.
Easy to decontaminate
The KX-2 was developed with contamination minimisation in mind. The sealed design is wipe-clean with no bug traps, making it well-suited for Biosafety Level 2 applications.
The KX-2 is ideal for use on an open bench as operator safety is assured – the KX-2 stops safely on human contact. The fully enclosed working mechanism ensures finger protection, making the robot fundamentally safe to use. The KX-2 is fully compliant with safety standards: ISO 10218–1:2011.
Simple to set up and easy to use
KX-2 features drag-to-teach technology providing easy automation of workflows. Simply move the robot arm through the pathway to the correct position and with the touch of a button the teaching is complete. In the event of power loss, the KX-2 arm remains in position and the servo gripper maintains hold on the plate. On power up, the KX-2 retains taught positions, allowing immediate resumption of the workflow.
The KX-2 can handle a wide range of labware from different types of plates to tip racks, tube racks, petri-dishes and T-flasks, making it the robot of choice for a variety of research applications, including synthetic biology, drug discovery and biotechnology. The counter-balanced arm of the KX-2 allows handling of full deep well plates at maximum extension for optimal use of the work envelope.
