LabBot3D - Adjustable bed


    One of the issues about converting a 3D printer to do liquid handling into SBS standard plates (ie., 96, 384, 1536 well), loading pipette tip boxes and doing microarrays is being able to align the deck squarely and making it level. This bed design and platform supports are adjustable to make this possible.


The adjustment system consists of four components:
    1. Platform support - aluminum extrusion components
    2. Base deck - rests on top of platform support
    3. Object deck - rests on top of base deck
    4. Mounting guides - Objects (ie., slides, plates, pipette tip boxes, wash stations) rest along edges or are fixed into place
