Dynamic Devices

Dynamic Devices is an inventor company infused with a pioneering spirit. We research and integrate new technologies because innovation is the foundation for competitiveness and growth and thus, for our future success.

Dynamic Devices is a premier provider of liquid handling robots and lab automation solutions to the life science industry. We are a recognized leader in motion control, liquid handling, microarray nano technology, high speed rapid prototyping, and application development. With combinations of standard liquid handling platforms and custom integration services, we deliver complete customer solutions. For over a decade now, Dynamic Devices has been delivering solutions to a few select customers in the life science arena. With the success of this business model and growth in the laboratory automation field, Dynamic Devices continues to expand.

Having implemented the the newest motion control and liquid handling technologies, our latest platforms are the next standard for automation. From simple pipetting workstations to custom integrated systems, Dynamic Devices concentrates on reproducing human sample processing, assuring the same results, or better, than if done by hand. We combine this functional chemistry with automation techniques, leading to a personalized solution that is emerging as the new standard in the lab. We focus on automating your assays the way your lab needs them done.

Company Profile

Founded in the fall of 1999 as a result of the aggregation of engineers formerly from other integration and laboratory automation companies, Dynamic Devices combines diverse expertise with a long synergetic history, resulting in one of the most efficient and effective groups within the laboratory robotics field.  We work directly with industry scientists to customize automation equipment to their unique and precise research needs.

With expertise in liquid handling robotic platforms that combine electronics, software, and mechanical design, Dynamic Devices focuses on pioneering innovative solutions and personal services to the life science industry.  The company’s long history and combined experience in integration and integration services grants Dynamic Devices a unique insight into all aspects of the evolution of lab automation, from introducing the first commercial fully automated micro plate based screening system, to the company’s non-gripper µHTS conveyor-based platform.

Dynamic Devices designs each automated liquid handling robot system around a specific defined customer application(s), but the open environment of the system and the associated training provides the end user with a powerful and flexible automation tool upon which to expand. The automated system is typically delivered to the customer site fully integrated for the defined assay protocols, where an operator with minimal training can operate the system and define, and perhaps schedule & execute new applications.

Dynamic Devices remains a true independent integrator with no bias toward a particular instrument manufacturer. This allows us to truly apply the best instrumentation available for the specific application, as well as integrate existing devices or new technology, guaranteeing your investment into the future. Our extensive experience providing similar articulated automated systems for over 10 years allows us to provide systems that are built with components of proven performance and reliability.

Jeanmarc HaabResearch & Development
Jeanmarc’s two and a half decades of experience began in Switzerland and moved him to the US as founder of SciTec US to consult with Hewlett Packard (HP/Sagian/Beckman) on their startup of laboratory integrations, ORCA robot development, the first microplate sealers and the first microplate carousels.  With these developments at SciTec US, sold to Zymark in 1999 (Zymark/Caliper/Perkin Elmer) he also developed liquid handling platforms, like the Cyclone line of liquid handlers, along with a variety of OEM liquid handling platforms and it is this experience that drives us to implement the most advanced manufacturing and semiconductor level components into our Lynx liquid handling platform today.
Kelly KreitlowOperations & OEM
Kelly’s two and a half decades of experience starting as Tecan’s Genesis US Product & Integrations Manager then moving to join Jeanmarc as SciTec’s Head of Sales & Integration, he founded Dynamic Devices in 1999.  For the past decade and a half Kelly runs OEM sales and daily operations, where past developments like the OEM Tecan GenMate, their first 96 channel head, and many OEM successes, like the ArrayIt Microarray Platform, were the beginning of integrations with linear motors and motion control systems. It is this development based on new available technologies that gives Dynamic Devices the drive and motivation that allow all our newest products to outperform and outlast virtually every other liquid handler on the market.
Jeff HurwitzSales & Marketing
Jeff’s two and a half decades of direct life science robotics experience starting with application software development and sales at Zymark (now Caliper/PE) and Tecan combined with managing Hamilton Robotics sales, applications, support and service in the States drives Dynamic Devices customer solutions for reliability and performance. In setting up long term product development plans and strategic high growth sales, support and manufacturing plans, Dynamic Devices is now ready to go direct and grow while supporting customers.  In his bringing on board the state-of-the-art VVP pipetting technology, Jeff has finalized the changes with the Lynx Liquid Handling Robotic Platform; the most intelligent liquid handler is now realized.
