Hi All,

I’m working on a workcell that might use a Nimbus96 as it’s liquid handler. I’ve been trying to reach out to our local sales rep here in the San Francisco bay area but I can’t seem to get a quote from him or to get some questions answered. I’m hoping some of you might know who I can go to in order to get a quote and maybe answer a question or two.

  • I’m looking to use these tips with a robotic arm placing the box on the nimbus deck. Do these tips have a lid on them? If they do, can the iSwap on the Nimbus remove that lid?
  • Any difficulties running the Nimbus on Windows 7 vs 10?

Thanks ahead of time for any advice you all might have!

Hi Landon,

Apologies for any delays in communication. I have spoken with one of the local Hamilton support members who has assured me that they have reached out to your sales support team on your behalf. You should be contacted shortly.

Regarding the filter tip boxes, they do have lids and the gripper can remove them. All tip box sizes are compatible.
The latest NIMBUS 96 software is compatible with both Windows 7 and 10.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but wanted to say thanks for the info! We have our Nimbus96 installed now and running some simple head stamp methods already.

I also wanted to ask if there was an ETA for when the Nimbus instrument line would be rolled into Venus 6? My understanding is that V6 is the version to unite them all I guess but I think it’s just the STAR(LET) and Vantage, right?

Also I was wondering if both of the Nimbus96 protective arms (“Gates” maybe) could be taken off? The Nimbus is going to be in an 8020 enclosure with interlocks so it should be closed off from users during a run.


Yes, the “wings” can be removed by customers. Hamilton personnel are not allowed to make such modifications though as we have a policy for not bypassing safety functions. Removing them depends on the age of the system so if you can message me directly with a serial number, I can provide some instructions.

VENUS 6 for NIMBUS is planned, but I do not have an accurate ETA to share yet.
