Automated Labcyte Echo Acoustic Dispenser

  • Nanoliter-scale reagent dispenser
  • Tipless transfer, resulting in dramatic cost savings
  • Improved information about sample integrity and improved transfer quality through measurement of DMSO or aqueous buffer levels.
  • Elimination of RNAi or compound loss, cross-contamination, carryover or leachates through non-contact transfer.
  • Extend RNAi library life through miniaturization of assays.
  • Greatly simplified assay development and dilution processes through the flexibility to transfer any volume of liquid from any well to any other well.
  • Robotic integration with 80 microplate ambient storage units.
  • Robotic integration with Agilent PlateLoc heat sealer, Brooks x-Peel desealer and Agilent Barcode microplate labeler.
