The robotic version of Hettich's model Rotanta 46RSC refrigerated centrifuge offers PC control and rotor positioning with maximum capacity of four, 750 ml round bottom containers, sixteen multiple-well plates or four deep-well plates. The Rotanta 46RSC is designed for automatic sample.
BioRobot 3000 workstation and DirectPrep 96 BioRobot Kit together provide an automated package for performing plasmid minipreps in a 96-well format. The procedure enables reproducible purification of plasmid DNA that is ready for direct use in high-throughput sequencing applications.
SmaRTStore is a small, automated compound storage unit that provides storage for vials, plates and tubes at temperatures from ambient to 㪬 C. With a footprint of 2,000 mm W × 1,500 mm D × 2,400 mm H) it is capable of handling in the region of 260,000 1.
Columbus Pro microplate washer is offered for applications ranging from diagnostic tests to cell based research. The instrment achieves high wash performance by having very low residual volumes (less than 2 μl) and multiple aspiration points for each well.
TekCel, Inc.'s Adaptive Process Technology (APT) is the foundation of its Tube Management System. APT uses a combination of robotics and software to optimize tube-picking processes to achieve overall throughput and efficiency.
Thermo Electron Corporation has introduced the RapidStak microplate stacker for their Multidrop 384 Dispenser, Multidrop Micro Dispenser, and Wellwash AC Microplate Washer. Intuitive design allows the stacker to deliver and stack plates simultaneously.
The Quadra3 pipetting workstation is offered with lidded plate handling stackers and automatic de-lidding capability.

Odyssey high-throughput plate storage and retrieval system, used for protein crystallization, is equipped with an identification system and barcode tracking, enabling programmed access to each microwell plate, processing up to 60 plates per hour.
Visualizer Western Blot Detection Kit provides fast, sensitive detection of antigens, a long lasting signal, and low background.
FACE Kits for c-Jun and ATF-2 provide a method to study proteins activated by phosphorylation. Their cell-based format eliminates the need for extracts, gels, and radioactivity.
BACMAX DNA Purification Kit reliably isolates high-quality BAC DNA, based on a modified alkaline-lysis procedure that typically yields 0.6 to 25 μg of BAC DNA from 1.5- to 100-ml cultures of a single-copy BAC.
Gel Filtration (Sephadex) SpinColumns come in a range of packingsG10, G25, G50, G100, P2, and P6to clean up DNA, RNA, protein, peptides, and nucleotide preparation.
