Twenty five years after the launch of the BSD600 Duet series of Biological Sample Punch Instruments, BSD Robotics is announcing the discontinuation of service and support for the Duet starting January 1, 2025.
As the premier sample punching instrument at the time of release and having a decades long history as the industry gold-standard; technology changes coupled with parts availability and software compatibility make future support unsustainable. BSD Robotics has procured the necessary materials and is committed to make available the full complement of Duet maintenance services until December 31, 2024.
While we are sad to see this portfolio favorite retire, BSD Robotics is excited to to offer the next in the series of BSD600 instruments, the Ascent A2. Designed and built with customer input and using the latest technology and enhanced features, the Ascent A2 is already established as a laboratory staple and continues BSD Robotics’ history as the market leader in product satisfaction.
During this transition period, BSD Robotics will offer trade-in pricing for the BSD600 Duet to customers upgrading to current production models.
