Andrew, the liquid
handling robot using
conventional pipettes

Better Pipetting:
Better Data,
Better Science

Andrew is a novel liquid handling robot designed
to enhance the reproducibility and the
efficiency of the pipetting process.

One solution,
many benefits.

Weighing only 10 kg and with a footprint corresponding to
a standard sheet of paper, the Andrew liquid handling robot
can be integrated in your laboratory within minutes: on your
workbench, under a hood, and even in a refrigerator at 4°C.

The flexible working deck, known as DOMINO™, allows users
to perform small to complex experiments from one to
10 microplates, up to 150 microtubes, or 100 tubes,
or any mixture of the different consumables you’re already
using (including using your current tips).

The working deck of Andrew consists of
magnetic tiles called DOMINO™ blocks
that you can assemble in seconds.
DOMINOs are designed to host your
consumables: from bottle to tubes, from
microplates to microchips, from vials to
rack of tubes. DOMINOS can also agitate,
stir, heat, cool, and can even host a
ready-to-go full kit. And if we don’t have
one domino ready straight away – we will
make it.

Andrew Lab: the free protocol design software

Andrew Lab,
the universal software
for protocol design,
comes for free.

Andrew Lab is a software tool that allows the creation
and documentation of generic pipetting protocols, even if
you don’t have any liquid handling robot. Try it to believe it,
and join the thousands of users that are already exploiting it.

The LLD is an accessory for Andrew to allow for liquid level detection

Liquid Level Detection

If you have many input samples with unknown volumes – or you want to reduce the probability of errors – this accessory will improve further your operational efficiency.

Available Now!

The Swiss Army knife

The best approach to increase productivity is to use the right tool for the job.
The average biologist spends more than 2 hours per day pipetting, repeating the same sequences about 500 times per day.

What for?


Benefits and advantages of Andrew: from proteomics to molecular biology, from aliquotting to cherry picking, from magnetic beads separation to normalization.

Concentration normalization made simple

Reduce hands-on time by 16 times.

Real-time qPCR plate preparation

More accurate data, fewer errors and walk-away operations.

Aliquotting: a frequent task in the lab

Keep using your standard consumables while reducing your hands-on time by 10X.


What Customers say about Andrew

Biotech Company, Germany

It was hard to find any critical feedback, our technical staff loves to work with Andrew

Head of Research / Biotech, Germany

Pharmaceutical Company, Germany

(...) Andrew is quite a help for us in the lab and he's frequently in use! It's a pretty cool tool :-)!

PostDoc Fellow / Pharmaceutical Company Innovation Center, Germany

Pharmaceutical Company, Sweden

Really brilliant solution, thumb up! You and your colleagues did really an outstanding job.

Senior Scientist / Pharmaceutical Company, Sweden

Academic Institute, Boston USA

I would strongly encourage you to consider Andrew Alliance...they make an impressive liquid handling robot and they have a responsive and highly competent technical team.

Research Scientist / Academic Institution, Boston USA

Biotech Company, Germany

Let me say it simply – you guys made an impressive product!

Head of New Scaffolds / Biotech Company, Germany

Pharmaceutical Company, USA

One pipetting mistake in a production plate costs our company more than $15,000...

Division Director / Pharmaceutical Company, USA

Pharmaceutical manufacturing, USA

That's a god send for anyone with ergo issues...

Production Manager / Pharmaceutical Company, USA
