Effective treatment of disease begins with fast, accurate diagnosis.

In vitro studies of patient fluids, cells and tissues influence 60% to 70% of clinical decisions.1 Even before the COVID-19 crisis arrived, new test methods and growing test volumes were already driving a strong need for new and upgraded clinical analyzers—both in the laboratory and at medical centers. Maximum productivity requires quick, precise, coordinated motion for positioning pipettes, aspirating aliquots, dispensing reagents and more.

As a trusted supplier to many major manufacturers, Kollmorgen understands the specialized motion requirements of in vitro diagnostic devices.

Kollmorgen motion systems offer precise single-axis or coordinated multi-axis control. Our broad portfolio includes compact designs that provide the torque and power density needed for highly dynamic motion even in a small machine footprint or in low-voltage/mobile applications. Our Powermax NEMA 23 stepper motors deliver precise motion control without the need for encoders and feedback circuits, and they feature oversized bearings for increased service life.

With these and other motion products, we offer an extensive selection of standard models and rapid prototyping of customized options for a perfect fit.
