The current local situation will allow us to remain in full operation. Our long-term driven production policy now allows us delivery on a regular basis,
without shortages nor delays. Due to travel restrictions or in cases where an on-site visit will not be possible, our service engineers will support you by remote access on your instrument, over the phone or via video conferencing.
Due to probable bottlenecks in goods transportation, we may have to ask you for your patience and understanding in some cases. Our experienced colleagues from our shipment department will look for the best option in each case and will keep you informed with tracking information for your planning.
As things may change rapidly, we will constantly keep you informed about any future changes and developments.
Please stay healthy
I found the company to be highly collaborative, working in partnership to develop innovative sample storage solutions. The overhead sample picking design is an example of such, minimising the energy consumption, running cost and environmental impact of the store.
The products were robustly engineered, with intelligent backup incorporated into the design e.g. dual cooling compressors and LN2 cooling option, in the event of a prolonged power outage.
The service support was always excellent, with a quick response by phone, email or in person, as required.
A particularly appealing feature, is the user friendliness of the store software. It enabled lab technicians, with limited training to load and unload the store, without supervision. Equally the link between the stores database and the LIMs system was straightforward.
I have no hesitation in recommending LiCONiC as an excellent provider and partner for a Biobank looking for a reliable, user friendly sample store, that, critically, will be well supported in the long term.
Drug DiscoveryPharmaceutical industry invests billions in research to find new therapies to an endless number of diseases and improve our quality of life. LiCONiC provides high throughput automated storage solutions that can handle libraries of hundreds of thousands of compounds that may be potential candidates for development as medical treatment.
GenomicsLiCONiC tracks the needs of the fast developing interdisciplinary field of science focusing on the structure, function, evolution, mapping, and editing of genomes providing custom made robotics solutions for sophisticated research initiatives partnering in its implementation with top industry leaders.
BiologicsThe complex world of molecular biology, microbiology, cellular biology and synthetic biology research strives for sample integrity. It is commonly necessary for samples to be stored at high volumes with high throughput processes and zero temperature variability. LiCONiC biolibraries meet these specialized needs offering additional significant variability in container types to be implemented.
BloodbankingAn average blood bank collects and stores tens of thousands of blood bags per year. Storage of blood components is the last manufacturing process in blood establishments that is not automated. LiCONiC as an industry pacemaker spots new markets for biological material storage thus setting standards ahead of the competition.
Agricultural BiologyLiCONiC looks into the agriculture industry as potential customer for a variety of its solutions: from automated incubators to sophisticated biorepositories. Constant contact with scientist led to the development of the unique systems that opening unprecedented research possibilities which help to modify living organisms.
Robotic IntegrationThe most widely known application of laboratory automation technology is laboratory robotics used to increase the efficiency of scientific research in laboratories. The implementation of LiCONiC technology integrated with other laboratory automation systems and IT systems makes movement of the specimen through the laboratory possible.
Custom MadesLiCONiC has out-of-the-box systems for automated storage of any sample, however we are specialized in customized solutions for any project. If either space constraint, unique labware, high temperature incubation, ultra-low temperature storage, special humidity, ultra-high speed or linear/orbital shaking is your requirement LiCONiC is able to provide solutions it due to its unrivalled experience and R&D potential.
