Our products

Product category: Analyser systems / equipment

BeeBlot TM - Semi Automation for Strip Based Assays

Optional heated or non-heated instrument for automating strip based assays to suit your requirements.
Once samples have been added manually, the instrument can run up to 12 different pre-programmed assays, for automating molecular based and Western Blot strip based assays.

The instrument uses reversible peristaltic pumps to dispense reagents to the sample tray, and optionally from the software, the pumps can be reversed to save reagent back into the reagent bottles. The tray for the samples and membrane strips allows for rocking, tilting and level position during incubation. The operator interface is via a keypad and display. Once the samples have been added to the tray the assay is automated, and the developed strips in the tray can be removed for the analysis of the strips by eye, or using Bee's AutoCam 48 to offer automated scanning, and interpretation using third party software.

RoboBlot TM - Full and Semi Automation for Western Blot and Hybridisation Strips

Optional heated or non-heated instrument for automating strip based assays to suit your requirements.
Our new generation instrument uses our own electronics based on the CANbus system, and Virtual Gearbox for fast and quiet operation of the axis. Each axis has his own microprocessor, which are programmable via USB. Each microprocessor is connected to each other via one small ribbon cable, limiting the wiring, and allowing for ease of maintenance.

Complete automation of strip assays - from sample preparation to image capture
• Walk-Away: Full automation from sample to scanning
• Convenience: Integrated Drying, 48 - 50 strips in one run
• Safety: Barcode-Identification and LIMS connectivity
• Flexibility: Combination of different assays and conjugate classes
• Space saving: Integrated camera for scanning
• User friendly: Minimal maintenance operations necessary
• Minimised dead volume to save precious reagents
• No cross-contamination with disposable tips for sample preparation

Third party interpretation software available upon request.

RoboScreen TM - Full Automation for Allergy Analysis

Automation for Allergy
The RoboScreen is available from MEDIWISS, and can process up to 36 samples per run, from sample processing to image analysis.

The instrument has an integrated barcode reader for sample ID, and can add the samples to the allergy membranes using disposable robotic tips. The assay process is fully automated, adding reagents for incubation and drying the membranes at the end of the assay, before the on-board scanner images the developed membranes for image analysis. The integrated PC is connected to the LIMS and interpretation software for downloading a worklist and uploading the analysed sample results.

About us

Company details

Bee Robotics Ltd is a privately owned company based in North Wales, UK, and was established in November 1999. The company occupies four industrial units, which houses its manufacturing and design facilities. The company has become well established in the automation of molecular and Western Blot strip based assays, and more recently, expanding into other fields of automation, offering OEM solutions to a wide range of clients.

Bee first exhibited at MEDICA in 2002, which has since become its base for meeting existing and new clients, to discuss their automation requirements, in various fields. Bee has become well known in the robotics industry, working closely with their clients to develop the right products, in a timely manner, from concept to market. Many clients have returned, to further enhance their automation requirements, which speaks volumes for the company.

Bee has been expanding and growing steadily, and in 2006 employed more graduates in mechanical and electronic engineering, to modernise our products, and introduce our next generation instruments, offering more advanced electronics and software, with a modular approach to mechanical designs. Bee has invested heavily in R&D over the years, and continuous to keep up to date with the latest technologies, to ensure that we have the best tools for product development.

High on our priority list is quality and reliability, and we support our own instruments in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, to ensure that we are well averse with any issues that may arise in the field making sure that our products are performing to our high standards, and client expectations. Bee is also familiar with the requirements of CE, UL, CSA, SFDA and IVD approvals, and has been certified to ISO 9001/13485 standards.

Bee has gained a vast experience in the design and manufacture of robotic instruments, with Mr. Steve Jones, Managing Director, and Mr. Alwyn Morus, Executive Director, being involved with robotic instruments, since the late 1980's. The company has achieved several awards over the years, with the most recent award being achieved in 2009 for Growth Through Innovation. The company is well positioned to become one of the leading instrument design and manufacturing companies, offering bespoke automation for the modern laboratory.
