Laboratory integration with INTEGRA
Streamline your workflow with improved connectivity
Save time and experience new levels of productivity
The rapid evolution of ‘connected’ technologies has made digitalization a key focus for the future of many life sciences companies. Automation offers laboratories the opportunity to create digital and walk-away workflows, improving both productivity and reliability. But did you know that your INTEGRA electronic pipettes and liquid handling instruments could be part of your integrated solution?
At INTEGRA, we recognize the opportunities offered by automation, and are developing a toolbox of API commands to help you incorporate your INTEGRA products into a wider connected laboratory solution. These commands allow bi-directional communication via a Bluetooth or wired connection, to ensure seamless integration with other elements of your digital lab workflow, accelerating development of your tailor-made solution.
How could integration benefit you?
- Free up operator time and improve productivity, by connecting the steps of your digital lab workflow
- Reduce paperwork and enhance traceability, with automated data entry directly into a centralized database or LIMS
- Manage devices remotely for maximum uptime and optimal maintenance routines
We are pleased to offer API commands and hardware to help you with your integration project, backed by the quality, precision and convenience you expect from INTEGRA pipettes.
Integrate your INTEGRA pipettes into your automated workflow
We can provide the API packages for you to use with your new or existing INTEGRA equipment, with the support of independent or your in-house integration experts. So far, we have developed API packages for the following products, offering bi-directional integration into your automated workflow via a Bluetooth or wired connection - we will continue to expand the command library to support more products soon, so watch this space:
Our 1, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16 channel electronic pipettes, with fixed tip spacing and a wide volume range (0.5-1250 µl).
