At-a-glance information

Visual indicator of instrument and system health

SmartHandle color informs users of instrument status, and overall system health. Instruments in warning or error states are identified by a SmartHandle color change which is easily identifiable from across the room.


Quick and easy instrument access

SmartHandles provide touch enabled automation control with haptic feedback allowing users to intuitively interact and share instruments with the inspire platform. Requesting an instrument is easy! Simply grip the SmartHandle to register your request. Feedback is provided by the color and pulse of the SmartHandle.

Flexible & configurable

Superior instrument accessibility in a compact vertical design

Configure your inSPIRE platform to meet your needs through our large catalog of components. The modular design and light, flexible docking enables multiple systems to be joined to create expanded workflow solutions.

Spinnaker XT microplate robot

Collaborative and safe by design

The inSPIRE platform uses the fully collaborative ThermoScientific™ Spinnaker™ Microplate Robot which has vision teaching, on-the-fly healing, built-in barcode reading for sample tracking, a full 360-degree workspace, an on-board container reorientation station and mover-based container de/re lidding.


Actively positioned means no re-teaching required

Quickly and easily supply power and communication to an instrument through each SmartShelf’s built-in communication ports. Depending on the chosen instruments, up to four SmartShelves can be placed on each inSPIRE platform central pole. Spill containment options are available.

Virtual World

Supported in a virtual environment

inSPIRE configuration software allows for simulations and 3D configurations in a virtual laboratory.
