Biomek 4000 is built with rugged, robust features for reliable performance that flexes and grows with your needs.

Simple, flexible and intuitive, the Biomek 4000 features powerful yet easy-to-use software combined with pre-programmed genomic and cellular methods designed to automate everyday lab processes and streamline your workflow. The Biomek 4000 is integration-friendly and easily adapts to evolving research requirements.

At the heart of the Biomek 4000  is its hardware. Built with rugged, robust features, this liquid handling system offers reliable performance that flexes and grows with your needs. Interchangeable tools in various volume ranges cover the breadth and depths of today’s life sciences applications. The modular deck configuration allows you to tailor the device according to your specific application. Up to 12 deck positions provide sufficient space for the automation of all major life sciences tasks. Storage is moved out of the deck area for more efficient use of the space.

New and improved tools offer even higher throughput for assays greater than 200 μL and up to 1000 μL volume transfers. The improved wash tool enables tip touches and more accurate volume dispenses.

And as with all Biomek systems, the Biomek 4000 Workstation can be easily integrated with other accessories or devices as your research demands.

Biomek 4000 detail


The Biomek 4000 Workstation fits comfortably into a laminar flow hood and is also available with an enclosure. The small footprint of the enclosure is designed to fit neatly on your lab bench.

Expanded dynamic volume range

From 1 μL to 1000 μL, the Biomek 4000 offers precise and robust pipetting, for both single channel and 8-channel pipetting.

Maximized deck space & additional storage

The off-deck tool rack and liquid waste disposal uses the workstation’s space more efficiently allowing for 12 deck positions to hold labware. Lower deck storage frees up precious lab space and keeps tools close at hand.

Improved wash tool performance

For maximum efficiency, dispense against a single well wall, perform tip touches or bulk dispense per liquid volume.


Optional accessories for cooling, heating and shaking are available.

Fully automated deck framing

The AccuFrame tool provides enhanced accuracy via three-dimensional positioning.
