Go to the sorting machine:
The MAPLE-PRO robot system from Flysorter automates the sorting of fruit flies for use in research laboratories. In this process, the animals are sucked in between the modules by a suction robot and sorted. Here the company relies on modular automation components from igus. Due to the modular design of the robot system, a variety of tasks can be performed in fruit fly research: behavioural tests, genetic analyses, testing various drug compounds or pesticides for their efficacy, collecting and separating newly hatched flies before mating, and much more.
