Truly hands-off ELISA automation
Fully automated ELISA solutions that free your scientists from tending to lab equipment
Thinking about scale? Think outside the ‘out of the box’ solution for ELISA automation
Currently, performing ELISA requires many manual steps. Even when automation is used, it tends to be limited to isolated benchtop automation, such as liquid handlers. This means time-poor, highly-trained technicians and scientists are spending hours moving samples between lab equipment, performing manual steps that can lead to human error and compromised data integrity with other benchtop machines when running at scale.
Out of the box solutions that combine multiple steps can help address some of these issues, however they are restricted in their ability to scale due to limited on-deck space, space within a lab, and inflexibility when a lab’s needs change.
Our approach to lab automation is different. Open, integrated automation works by connecting benchtop instruments with robotics, enabled by the Automata LINQ bench and integrating them together with Automata LINQ software to create a new approach to ELISA automation.

Unlock the potential of your lab space with an automated ELISA system
Built on the Automata LINQ robotic lab bench, this ELISA system has equipment operating concurrently, unlocking a lab’s maximum capacity. This can be expanded or adapted over time, with additional lab equipment or adding further LINQ modules.
The cloud-based Automata LINQ software seamlessly connects each activity in the ELISA workflow, providing full barcode scanning traceability for each sample, and adding test data to the lab’s LIMS system.

Is Automata right for my ELISA lab?
Liconic microplate hotel, Thermo Fisher Cytomat Microplate Incubators, SPT Labtech Firefly Liquid handlers, Certus Flex dispensers, Tecan Hydrospeed Microplate washers, BMG Pherastar Microplate readers, Azenta A4s and xPeel Microplate sealers and peelers, Barcode scanners, Automata LINQ bench and software, Automata Scara Robots.
This solution above has a capacity of 530 microplates a day, with an output of at least 78 samples p/m² / 7 samples p/ft². Ultimately, the top-end capacity is mostly limited by space and system bottlenecks and can be expanded or shrunk as part of the development process with your lab.
We can create solutions for workflows that can start with integrating laboratory equipment-specific workflow steps as a workcell (like sealing and peeling plates, to washing) to reduce manual steps and time.
We can integrate multiple workcells together to combine entire workflows depending on the needs of your lab. The journey to fully automated labs takes time, so we can start wherever you are in your automation journey. We can always adapt our platform layouts to new instruments you acquire as your needs change.
Yes.The Automata LINQ platform is vendor agnostic, so we can integrate third party devices and software based on your needs and the problems your lab is trying to solve with the ELISA assay.
Sometimes ELISA systems can be restricted by incubation time requirements, washing and immunostaining requirements and shift availabilities. The Automata system doesn’t necessarily work faster than a person, but through being able to tend to multiple machines concurrently and enabling complete hands-off time, the system can run independently of human interactions, and your lab can increase throughputs.
Speak to us. Whether you are running Direct ELISA, Indirect ELISA, Sandwich ELISA or Competitive ELISA, there will always be steps in the workflow that can be optimised.
