With a new perspective, this paper integrates the concept of automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) in production and distribution with high-throughput screening (HTS) system and strikes out a new path in designing AS/RS in biological and medical laboratories. Robotic manipulators are used in AS/RSs to pick-and-place objects. Robot hands are proper to fulfill this function, whereas they are complex in mechanical control system. In this paper, a novel four-screw robotic (FSR) manipulator is presented. Kinematics and dynamics framework of the FSR manipulator is given.
