Safety cabinet claire® lh - at a glance

Tested safety for people and products

In the tested and unique combination with the BRAND liquid handling station, the claire® lh fulfils the requirements for personal, product and carry-over protection according to DIN EN 12469 - as evidenced by the CE declaration of conformity.

Intuitive pipetting process

A laptop connected to the claire® lh takes over the control of the methods. Without programming knowledge, you can define the processes and have them carried out automatically. The software reliably informs you about every step of the method.

Safe results

The high-quality system solution consisting of a safety cabinet and pipetting robot enables you to work under GMP-A conditions for the highest quality requirements in your processes.

Highest safety in operation

The intelligent locking mechanism guarantees your safety during the pipetting process. After loading the Liquid Handling Station, it switches to pipetting mode: The front window is closed to such an extent that unintentional reaching in is not possible.

A wide range of possible applications

Quickly adapt the features to your requirements. The compact design allows up to eight workstations. These can be individually equipped - from single vessels to 384-well plates. The right accessories, such as shakers, are available for every application.

Lifelong quality

Berner Service supports the product throughout its entire life cycle. From commissioning to annual maintenance and technical support, we are there for you at all times and are at your side with our expertise - for the safety cabinet and the liquid handling status. Find out more about our service here.

Individual positioning

You design the individual workspace according to your wishes and requirements. Depending on the process and task, the liquid handling status can be positioned flexibly to the left, right or center


Particularly quiet, bright operating conditions, individually adjustable working surface height and optimum legroom thanks to the particularly compact design of the first main filter stage.

Dual advantage

In addition to using the combination, the claire® lh can also be used without the easily removable Liquid Handling Station (LHS). With optional standard worktop configuration, a class II microbiological safety cabinet is always available for all further laboratory work.

Sustainability - Made in Germany

Both the safety cabinet and the liquid handling station are manufactured in Germany. Due to the high proportion of German suppliers, the supply chains are short. Assembly and technical testing are carried out directly by the manufacturer - guaranteeing you the "Made in Germany" label


The Liquid Handling Station from BRAND GMBH + CO KG offers high flexibility for changing pipetting tasks. Seven workstations in ANSI/SLAS format can be freely assigned, for example with single tubes, 8-well PCR tube strips, reservoirs, 96-well and 384-well plates. For contact-free liquid dispensing, 1-channel and 8-channel liquid ends are available. The right accessories are available for every application, such as a shaking and temperature control module or cooling blocks


The pipetting process can be controlled using a laptop connected to the claire® lh, so no programming knowledge is required. The software takes over the control and carries out defined processes automatically. The LHS automatically logs the processes and checks them for inconsistencies. Compared to manual pipetting, the use of the LHS achieves a time saving of 70%.


The claire® lh system solution comprises the combination of BRAND's Liquid Handling Station and the high-quality safety cabinet, based on the model size B-2-130 in the design of Berner's claire ® pure series.

The innovative touch display enables quick and easy control of the safety cabinet and the operating modes of the liquid handling station. Both systems are brought together and clearly displayed. The safety status is immediately visible via the user interface.


With the new claire® lh, dual use is possible because the LHS can be integrated into the working plane and positioned individually in the workspace of the workbench. This innovative geometry guarantees the best possible personal and product protection.
