                      "Cool Hand Luke" Robot accepts all major pin types (Hampton, Yale, SPINE, etc.) and lengths (10-24 mm) and supports "delayed data collection mode" where data collection runs are deferred to the end of the shift. This robot does not work directly with cassettes because hand-mounting of samples in the mini-hutch is faster than any robot.

                    • All SBS compliant crystallization trays supported

                      Thin-walled in-situ ready trays such as in-situ-1 highly recommended

                      Ambient temperature only currently supported
