SDB-1: Benchtop Solids & Powder Dispenser

Benchtop Powder Dispenser

The bench-top automatic Solids Dispenser SDB-1 can dispense calibrated volumetric doses (and multiples) of powders in a highly precise and repeatable fashion.

The laboratory dosing solution increases lab productivity and at the same time ensures process accuracy. Compared to other techniques the volumetric solids dispensing is particularly fast (2.5-3.5sec. per dose). Due to its compact benchtop configuration the SDB-1 is easy to integrate in the workflow and alleviates tedious repetitive tasks .

The dispensing heads are interchangeable to enable quick processing of several materials with different dose size and no cross-contamination without cleaning steps. A small dispensing head is capable of dispensing doses from 5 mg up to 250 mg in a single shot, or higher for incremental dispensing. A large dispensing head can dispense from 5 mg up to 5 grams and multiples.

An LED display provides feedback on the amount of powder being dispensed. The SDB-1 is powered from the AC socket, user selectable 115V/230V.

We also offer customised solutions, e.g. for automation.

Increased lab productivity and ease of use.
The SDB-1 Solids Dispenser increases the speed of dispensing solid/powder samples while retaining the flexibility of freehand processing.


Occupational health of operators.
Work monotony and operator fatigue in repetitive processing of samples is relieved by automatic portioning and dispensing with the SDB-1.


Continuous precision.
Solid/powder sample portions are dispensed accurately with the SDB-1 with each volume consistently within a tight tolerance eliminating errors of manual processing.

X-Y table for 96-well plates maneuver


Operator may operate the X-Y table by means of sliding (in, out & left, right) to direct each dispense into well plate. A motorised version is available upon request.

The X-Y table is a removable attachment, so SDB-1 can be used for normal dispensing into other mediums such as vials or tubes.
