The Molecular Biology Service has to Agilent Bravo LT96 Liquid Handling systems. This platform is the fastest and most versatile small footprint
liquid handling system available.
Biotek Precision XS
The Precision™ XS uniquely combines a single-channel sample processing head, an 8-channel pipetting head and an 8-channel bulk reagent dispenser all in one compact, affordable product. In addition to transfers using disposable pipette tips, the Precision XS’ autoclavable and organic solvent resistant bulk reagent dispenser is available for transferring larger volumes. Intuitive Precision Power PC software simplifies the programming of applications from hit picking to serial dilutions even for those new to automated liquid handling. BioTek’s BioStack™ Microplate Stacker increases liquid handling throughput by delivering up to 30 microplates to the Precision XS platform.
XIRIL 100 Workstation
The Xiril 100 Liquid Handling Workstation is equipped with a 8 channel pipette arm that covers the volume range from 2-1000 µl. As a state-of-the-art liquid handling robotic workstation, each pipette can be controlled individually enabling independent Y and Z movement. Disposable tips with and without filters can even be used within the same pipetting process to balance contamination risk and cost control. Our Xiril 100 is equipped with a heatable shaker and a vacuum manifold for nucleic acid preparation.
Microarray Spotting System
The Custom Microarray Printer is a special purpose instrument designed to deposit high-density, gridded arrays of cDNA, genomic DNA or similar biological material on microscope slides. We equipped our printer with a printing head from Telechem which holds up 48 spotting pins.
- Total capacity of up to 200 slides
- 40,000 spots (clones)/array
- 40 h for full batch
- Up to 48 printing tips for 384-well plates
- Precision and repeatability of <10µm in X and <1µm in Y and Z
