Freeslate, Inc. announced the launch of its third generation Core Module automation system (CM3); designed to optimize workflow integration, it enables scientists to leverage a single automated platform to run a diverse array of laboratory applications. The CM3, the latest product from Freeslate, gives scientists a configurable system for preparing, processing and testing intricate samples including biologic formulations, biomass samples, and other complex mixtures.
“We’re excited to debut our latest product offering to the chemical community at the American Chemical Society's Spring 2010 meeting,” said John Senaldi, chief executive officer of Freeslate. “The CM3 will streamline how applications are run in today’s labs, ultimately optimizing efficiency, reducing overall R&D costs and accelerating scientific discovery for researchers.”
The CM3 unites two earlier Freeslate offerings, the Powdernium MtM and the second generation Core Module platform into a single, modular product that can be easily applied to existing lab applications. The new platform offers an extensive list of new features such as a larger deck, an automated tool changer, off-deck access with robotic arms, and a balance and imaging module that accommodates vials, bottles, jars, and plates.
