The Scorpion for Chemistry


The speed and versatility of the Scorpion make it the ideal choice for synthetic chemists to automate High-Throughput Experimentation in your lab.


With the Scorpion, a synthetic chemist can see a 10-fold increase or more in the number of experiments being performed. The Scorpion can access 6 deck positions with a minimal footprint. The unique lightweight and durable delta arm design allows for an open work space. The high-speed arm movements increase throughput and facilitate the transfer of solvents without dripping. The enclosed work space can be filled with gas to create an inert environment. The open design of the work space and powerful software allow the system to be configured for virtually any type of lab ware. Dram tubes, glass vials, deep well blocks, and many others. The pipette tips are compatible with a wide range of solvents.



The Scorpion can be utilized in many different workflows. Some typical applications are listed below.


  • High-Throughput Experimentation (HTE)

  • Reaction optimization

  • Reaction miniaturization to screen conditions without wasting precious sample

  • Long-term scheduled reaction sampling for kinetic assays

  • High-throughput screening of ligands or substrates for reactions

  • Polymer development, with optional heat block and magnetic stirrer




  • 10-fold increase or more in the number of experiments that can be setup versus a manual workflow.

  • Small footprint fits into fume hoods.

  • Enclosed workspace and airflow system allow for an inert atmosphere to be created so sensitive reagents can be used with confidence.

  • Liquid level sensing allows the tip to follow liquid levels, improving aspirate and dispense accuracies.

  • Single channel head and optimized dispense modes make it easy to work with a wide range of solutions.

  • Intuitive and easy to use software makes setting up complex experiments a simple task.

  • The single channel head design allows the Scorpion to access any type of tube, vial, or plate.

  • Work safer by limiting lab personnel exposure to solvents.
