Laboratory automation systems integrate with liquid handlers, plate washers, plate readers, plate sealers, and other equipment.
Roboocyte was developed to provide the pharmaceutical industry and academic researchers an automated system to record ion currents in oocytes of Xenopus laevis with the two-electrode-voltage-clamp technique (TEVC) in a 96-well dish.
The R19 Athena 4-axis cylindrical robot is offered for DNA screening in forensic science, drug development, bacterial resistance testing and toxicology. The robot is usually mounted on a track that can be up to five meters long and surrounded by various instruments.
Tecan's Freedom EVO liquid handling robotic workstation is available in three instrument dimensions (100, 150 and 200cm) that support the implementation of a wide variety of application options and sample throughput speeds.
The robotic version of Hettich's model Rotanta 46RSC is a refrigerated centrifuge with PC control and rotor positioning with maximum capacity of four 750ml round bottom containers, sixteen microplates or four deep well plates.
THEONYX liquid handling system integrates fluidics, pumps, motors and electronics within its robotic arm. This provides better control of fluidics, a more open deck, ease of upgrades and service, and low maintenance costs.
The Individual Vial Retrieval (IVR) sample storage system provides fully automated access to individual vials stored at temperatures down to 㫨 C. The IVR's high-speed conveyor system shuttles samples to one or more Vial Handlers (VH). The Vial Handlers re-rack, scan, weigh and sort vials.
LAP4100 printer/applicator for robotics-friendly interface offers precise label placement. Long and narrow bar code labels are placed on microwell plates, for example. Resolutions of up to 600 dots per inch is available, providing bar code and graphic image quality, even on small labels.
OLA2500 modular lab automation system offers aliquoting and pre- and post-analytical sample processing capabilities. As a front-end sample processor, the system automatically decaps, aliquots and sorts tubes to any analyzer sample rack.
Beckman Coulter automated solutions for primary and secondary screening, proteomics and genomics include the Biomek® 2000 and Biomek FX liquid handlers, which can operate as stand-alone systems or can be integrated into SAGIAN Core Systems with a choice of other assay devices.
Advanced Tissue Arrayer (ATA-100) makes tissue microarrays from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal and tumor tissues, cell lines, xenographs and transgenic animals. A stereo microscope and movable stage provide dual viewing of the reference slide (H&E or IHC stained) and donor tissue block.
Real-time investigation of cellular and sub-cellular processes. by Paul Hoeprich, Ph.D. Figure 1: Example 203 0.5 N.A. fluorescent micrographs of HeLa cells using the EIDAQ 100 High Throughput Microscopy (HTM) system.
Cell Death Detection ELISA PLUS , a quantitative ELISA for the in vitro determination of cytoplasmic, histone-associated DNA fragments following induced cell death, is a rapid, one-step test.
Kits and reagents for optimizing apoptosis detection in particular research models include proteins and antibodies to assess expression of Bcl-2 family members, survivin and IAPs and to evaluate activity of caspases, PARP and cytochrome c.
