Product News Feb 08, 2014
CyBio AG has delivered a robotics system to Boehringer Ingelheim for replicating plates for its compound management activities in its Biberach location as part of a major contract.
For the company, a subsidiary of Analytik Jena, the contract comprised delivery of the complete solution including plate storage, the robot system, pipettors and the system controls. The order value lies in the upper six-figure range.
"We are happy about this major contract, as Boehringer Ingelheim has been a valued customer for more than a decade and has placed their trust in us once again for this far-reaching project," says CyBio Executive Board member Thomas Moore. "We have replaced a unit that has been in use for about ten years with the new system and, in addition our expertise in project business, have added core CyBio products to the system."
The system, which is now in operation, includes the pipettor workstation CyBi®-Well vario with 384 pipetting heads and accessories, the CyBi®-Drop3D for dispensing as well as numerous CyBi®-QuadStack microplate storage units.
"In the end, Boehringer Ingelheim chose us based on a notable reference from a large crop science company for whom we successfully implemented a project of a similar size in the past year," Moore continued.
