The LiCotel LPX Line

Automated Plate Hotels for Robotic Integration

Ambient
The LPX series is the standard series of Plate Hotels for table-top applications and covers the range of 44 to 880 MTP plate equivalent.
These instruments consist of removable cassettes that hold plates during storage and a stationary lift mechanism to transport a plate from the storage to the transfer station or reverse. It is designed for various tip box feeders.

LPX plate hotels belong to the classic line units for open storage applications. Capacity ranges from 44 to 880 MTP equivalent. These instruments consist of removable cassettes that hold plates during storage and a stationary lift mechanism that handles one plate between cassettes and transfer station. The ability to handle labware from shallow high density plates to tall tip boxes, combined with great configuration flexibility and a huge variety of accessories and options, make the LPX Line of instruments a true all-rounder for open storage applications. All members of LPX line can be equipped with various types of packages, options and a wide selection of useful accessories. For details please refer to Packages, Options and Accessories section of the web page and relevant flyer.
LiCotel LPX44
The LPX44 is the smallest member of the LPX Plate Hotel family. Two stationary easily removable cassettes are located between the lift mechanism. The transfer station is located opposite the cassettes. In addition to the z-axis the lift mechanism has a rotation axis (turn movement) that turns the transport shovel facing one of the two cassettes or facing the transfer-station.

LiCotel LPX56
The LPX56 is the second smallest member of the LPX line. Its 56 MTP capacity make it perfectly suitable of small-scale integration, highly miniaturized applications. Its fast retrieval time makes it perfect for throughput issues. It is ideal for laboratories with room constrains.
Two stationary cassettes that can easily be removed are located between the lift mechanism.
The transfer station is located opposite to the cassettes. In addition to the z-axis the lift mechanism has a rotation axis (turn movement) that turns the transport shovel facing one of the two cassettes or facing the transfer station.
LPX44 is available as open an system on the platform, in partial housing and in protection cover.

LiCotel LPX110
The LPX110 is the latest member of the LPX family. Offering a capacity of 110 MTP plates and a high flexibility for integration it is perfect for automation needs.

Various Options like shaker, BCR, housings and more accessories like various cassettes and transfer stations are available.

LiCotel LPX220
The LPX220 is the successor of the legacy 189 plate capacity MPH (Micro Plate Hotel). Some of LPX220's improvements are an increased 220 MTP capacity, its faster access speed and its much higher flexibility for integration. In fact, the LPX220 can be integrated in four different orientations. Left, right, back and side access is made possible by one single system.

LiCotel LPX280
The LPX280 is the successor of the LPX220 with increased storage space to 280 MTP equivalent within the same enclosure. Its compact size and its capacity makes it ideal for mixed plates applications. LPX280 can be integrated in four different orientations: left, right, back and side access. LPX280 features newly developed handling with higher speeds and spring loaded lift mechanism instead of counter weight. Both improve the overall performance of the unit.
LPX280 is available as an open system on the platform, in partial housing and in protection cover

LiCotel LPX440
The LPX440 is optimized for larger capacity applications. The LPX440 offers high capacity while maintaining the same compact footprint of the LPX220. The LPX440 is ideal for high throughput labs with space constraints. For comfortable operation the LPX440 is available in Double Decker configuration having two carrousel decks with tow times ten standard 540mm cassettes resulting 440 MTP capacity. Like the LPX220, the LPX440 can be integrated in four different orientations. Left, right, back and side access is made possible by one single system.
