Biomek 4000 Automated Liquid Handler

No Longer Available for Purchase

A compact liquid handler ideal for smaller laboratories and those new to automation. It helps standardize daily pipetting routines, maintain sample quality and generate repeatable, reliable results. Labs focused on genomics, drug discovery, cell biology, proteomics, forensics, and related research can run methods on the Biomek 4000 automated liquid handler.

  • Ideal for low-throughput workflows
  • 12 deck positions including 4 off-deck
  • 1 - 1,000 µL pipetting volume range with liquid-level sensing
  • Multiple interchangeable single- and eight-channel pipetting tools and gripper

Continued support

We will continue to provide full service support to our Biomek 4000 instrument customers. This includes the consumables and supplies, service and maintenance, training, hardware accessories, device integrations, and software extensions that maximize the utilization of your existing instruments. One such example is the recently released Biomek 4.2 software that enables Windows® 10 functionality for Biomek 4000 instruments.

Since the introduction of the Biomek 1000 over 30 years ago, Beckman Coulter has continued to innovate new automation solutions to accelerate scientific discoveries. The Biomek i-Series—with improved capacity, flexibility and usability—represents the latest step in this evolution. Most existing Biomek methods can be adapted to the new i-Series Workstations, and we’re confident you’ll benefit from the new platform enhancements if you choose to upgrade to an i-Series workstation, like the Biomek i5, the Biomek i7, or an integrated system.
