Hardware Type allows classification of hardware based on their usage and purpose in the laboratory workflow. By default, BASE creates the 3 main hardware types and those correspond to the main hardware families identified by MIAME requirements. These 3 hardware types are Print Robot, Scanner, and Hybridization station.
In case those built-in types are not enough, it is possible to create new ones.
