Innovative Lab Tech – Liquid Handling Systems

Written by Jimmy Rustling

We are living in an age where digital tech meets nanotech and AI has the potential to revolutionise many industries; one innovative arrival is the state-of-the-art liquid handling systems that boost efficiency with fast and reliable liquid handling according to your settings.

Powerful features

Integrated cameras for accurate calibration and state-of-the-art robotics deliver precise doses using an automatic pipette head; once set up, the machine handles everything and in super-fast time. The user-friendly interface gives you total control and the time you save can be put to good use in other aspects of lab management.

Small size

The auto pipette liquid handler is smaller than other units, saving you valuable space in your lab. Tailored solutions are available for standard lab processes, such as:

  • Pooling
  • Cherry picking
  • Normal liquid transfers
  • NGS library preparation

With a total of 384 well plates, most projects can be accommodated and with Python scripting functions, more complex operations can be calibrated and set up.

Low maintenance

The latest generation of liquid handling system is very low maintenance, ensuring the machine is always online and ready to work. Easily moved, the unit can be locked into position and it is ready to work.

Multiple pipette head

This allows you to work on several projects; each headset has its own calibration, so you don’t have to re-calibrate, which wastes time. Accuracy levels are incredible, with closed loop access control that use optical coders to ensure such a high level of precision and accuracy.

Semi-automated library preparation

A top brand such as Myra offers semi-automated library preparation, which streamlines the workflow, reduces errors and increases reproducibility. The machine is capable of handling up to 24 libraries, which is more than enough; the machine incorporates a 96-well magnetic station with off-deck heating that reduces robotic downtime. The workload is divided into manageable runs with safe stopping points after library preparation steps, including bead clean up. The machine can successfully generate high-quality DNA libraries and performance is on a par with manual methods; sequencing runs show high Q30 scores and balanced barcodes.

Order a free demo

If you would like to try a liquid handling system for yourself, click on the ‘order a free demo’ button and fill in the data fields. A staff member will get in touch to arrange a time and date then the machine is delivered and full support from the team allows you to set up and calibrate the equipment. It is plug and play; simply install the software and you are good to go. Most offer a 14-day free trial, which is without obligation and should you wish to purchase the equipment, the process can begin.

Complete support

When you invest in a state-of-the-art liquid handling system, you are in good hands, as the supplier is readily available 24/7 so you won’t be offline too long. If your staff need training to operate the system, a technician is happy to spend as much time as it takes to give them a level of competency operating the system.
