Art Robbins Instruments is a company focused on solutions for the life science fields. For the past 15 years, ARI has been a leader in providing solutions for structural biology. At ACS 2018, ARI is introducing the Scorpion for Chemistry, a modular work station to automate the setup of reactions in chemistry.


  • 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 allow for an open workspace. The high-speed arm movements increase throughput and facilitate the transfer of solvents without dripping. The enclosed workspace can be filled with gas to create an inert environment. The open design of the workspace and powerful software allow the system to be configured for virtually any type of labware. 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
