Beckman Coulter Life Sciences: Robert Thikoll

Automation has resolved being able to go from 24 samples to 48 samples. A robotic guide helps scientists in the laboratory. Thikoll is Vice President of Global Manufacturing Operations for Beckman Coulter, Inc., a medical diagnostic equipment maker, part also of Danaher Corporation. Thikoll has a Bachelor’s degree in political science, and government, as well as Japanese and Asian studies from Arizona State University in 1990. He has also studied at Nanzan University, in Nagoya-shi, in Aichi, Japan. Robert Thikoll is also Vice President and General Manager of Thomson Industries, Inc.

Thikoll has worked on electric actuators as well which is driven by electronic controls. Thikoll’s article states that new applications have cutting-edge features that improve performance, ergonomics, safety and cost. Beckman Coulter deals in clinical centrifuges and other medical equipment for laboratories. It provides centrifuge systems as well as immuno assay systems and more. Robert Thikoll has designed electrical actuators in off-highway vehicles with users in mind. Electrical actuators are used to operate large valves, in waste water treatment plants, power plants and refineries. Electrical actuators are used to open and close valves. Adding joy stick inputs to electrical actuators allow more detailed motion abilities. Thikoll has invented a way to save money and space by using the electrical actuator.
