November 2017 - SFC-Automation "Economy"
Our newly developed solution for lower sample throughput!

Benefit from the advantages of automation even if you have a smaller amount of samples per day. Our "Economy" version offers a lot of comfort on a small footprint (850 x 800 mm) and of course also meets the AOCS and UIPAC standards. From its "big sisters", our latest automation has received many features: the proven software SFC Application 2.2, the error-free positioning system, the sensor-controlled sample transport, the standard LIMS interface and the temperature and time monitoring with alarm. There are 8 temperature baths integrated, divided into a heating block (ambient temperature up to 100°C), a cooling block (ambient temperature up to 0°C) and 6 blocks for temperatures between 5°C and 60°C.


May 2017 - The latest generation of our SFC-Automation:
More reliability, more efficiency, more quietness - and a revised design!

We proudly present the latest generation of our SFC-Automation with three great improvements:
1. New error-free positioning system based on a stepper motor with absolute sensor. That means no more positioning errors, no end switches, no homerun. The robot always “knows” its position, even in the event of a power failure or physical collisions.
2. Much more efficient temperature controller: At half the energy consumption, we reach even lower temperatures so that air-cooled baths work reliably at 0° C even in non-climatic, warm rooms. Thus, water-cooled baths or air conditioning are unnecessary.
3. The device presents itself with a new profile system which, apart from the improved optics, also ensures a higher torsional stiffness (less vibrations, quieter operation) and has become more service-friendly (cable guides in the aluminum profiles, integrated sockets, etc.).


January 2017 - Laix purchases an extensive software package from Comicon GmbH / Hamburg

Since January 2017 Laix is also provider of laboratory software.
We have expanded our product range by the two standard interface programs: "cConnect" and "Peak-O-Mat". Also the automation software "SFC-Application", "AOM" as well as "FatLab" is now owned by Laix. So in the future, we will offer hardware and software from a single source. We look forward to this new challenge, which enables us to respond quickly and flexibly to customer requirements.

August 2016 - Two more companies are official distribution partners of Laix Technologies!

February 2016 - New features for SFC-Automation
- Automated temperature calibration

The convenient solution to work always with exact temperatures. This is ensured by our newest development, which performs automatic temperature calibrations in custom defined periods. For documentation (e.g. for audits) the software produces a report for each calibration.

- Heated Input Block

Save a complete work step by putting the samples directly into the heated input block, which replaces a complete melting bath.

- Integrated water bath

You still want to use a water bath in addition to our dry baths? No problem, we integrate it into our automation. The sample tubes are dried automatically with air pressure and brushes for the next step after using the water baths.

May 2015 - new magnetic stirrers

Our new product line "Let's twist" starts with a powerfull contactless stirrer in our VariSynth stations.

October 2013 - Automated Oilseed Measurement

We finished another automation based on our VariSam autosamplers.
Highlight of this automation is, that it can be operated in two modes. It can weight and measure up to 500 samples fully automated or you can work in a half automated mode. The NMR can be used for manual measurments while the instrument operates the balance. The status of the instruments is indicated with modern LED-stripes, the working area is protected by light curtains.

October 2013 - Automated FatLab is ready
