In this paper, the author presents micro-plate grasping work using a re-sized lab automation drone in high throughput system. Here, a robotic arm is affixed to a rotorcraft. The arm's gripper allows the unmanned aerial vehicle to dexterously manipulate objects such as micro-arrays and test samples often used in high throughput systems (HTS). The result shows that drone could improve existing HTS operations. The 6 degree-of-freedom (DOF) arm and gripper design are deployed to pick and place microplae with different samples. Test-and-evaluation approach and results are also given.
