Highly flexible and reliable for laboratory automation

Precise and secure handling of liquids is a primary consideration in laboratory automation. Highly flexible and reliable systems are needed so that small amounts of liquid with a wide variety of properties can be treated correctly. With its broad product range, Balluff will help you with precisely detecting liquids. Patented sensors with MICROmote technology also detect micro-bubbles reliably and efficiently.

Application examples
