Nucomat - Bespoke Laboratory Automation Systems

Datech Scientific are the UK agent for NUCOMAT cv, Belgium, who have specialised in providing bespoke laboratory automation systems for the Analytical, Life Science and R&D industries since 1988.

Based on the ever increasing demands for better efficiency, improved health and safety and more consistent workflows in complex laboratories, new innovations are being applied. NUCOMAT have strategically focused on the development of customised solutions, and adapting the latest technology, thereby establishing solid references in Analytical, Life Science and R&D Laboratories.

Each module in a NUCOMAT system is specifically selected and evaluated based on customer’s needs and requirements. In addition, a combination of a detailed risk assessment and a performance capability calculation is provided to determine the best suitable solution, whilst highlighting the exact cost of ownership. After implementation and start-up of each project, a dedicated training and maintenance program is provided to allow you to achieve the best possible return on investment.

The backbone of each automation platform is RoBin software, an in-house developed tool (event driven, SQL server based). This software allows embedded microcontroller technology to control each step, and supervises every module, sensor and/or instruments in the system.

The strategic partnership with several international instrument suppliers, vendors, consultants and technology institutes leads to new innovations and allows NUCOMAT to create smart interfaces for the most advanced needs in automation. A continuous investment in gaining and anchoring this know-how provides NUCOMAT a privileged position in the lab automation market.

NUCOMAT’s bespoke concepts have provided customers with the most accurate systems for their own individual applications for over 25 years.
