Context is everything in biology. "The old days of saying that a protein does such-and-such are over," notes Ian Ley, Director of Cellular Analysis at Beckman Coulter (Fullerton, CA). "Now everything is understood to be interconnected, and cross-connected."
Eppendorf epMotion 5075 robotic liquid-handling workstations feature an innovative optical sensor to monitor labware and liquid levels on the 12-place deck. Stations have the ability to automatically change pipetting heads and move labware to various positions.
Multi-channel model Ovation BioNatural Pipette extends ergonomic benefits for protocols and applications in multiple-well plates.
The Biomek Assay Workstation, configured with either the Biomek FX or NX liquid handlers, provides multiple pipetting options for varying capacity, throughput and lab space requirements.
Mini LabRoller Rotator allows mixing sample tubes at various levels of agitation. Three rotisseries are available to accommodate plates, various tube sizes such as 1.5/2.0 ml micro tubes, common test tubes, and standard 15 ml and 50 ml conical tubes.
SoftAide Pipette Controller serial pipetting is light-weight and fatigue-free for precise measuring and dispensing from 0.1 ml to 200 ml. The controller has an easy-to-read LED display for mode and speed selection. NiMH batteries provide maximum productivity, with continuous use up to one week.
