Automated Liquid Handlers - Minimizing Liquid Delivery Errors

Posted: February 22, 2012

Liquid handling systems play a crucial role within the lab, especially where a large amount of sample analysis is required on a daily basis. They help reduce the amount of time it takes to get the results you need. To keep up with the demands of today’s modern laboratories, a new concept has become increasingly popular; Automated Liquid Handling. These systems can produce smaller volumes and provide lower error rates as they feature no-contact dispensing.

INTEGRA Biosciences has recently announced VIAFILL, their new multipurpose liquid handling system that delivers high performance bulk reagent dispensing, multichannel pipetting, and microplate washing capabilities all from a single multipurpose instrument.

Hamilton Robotics has also introduced the MICROLAB NIMBUS, a new multifunctional workstation that enables gripper movements and a range of pipetting capabilities for tubes and plates within a secure environment. Make sure you bench the MICROLAB NIMBUS so you don’t miss out on all the news feeds and updates for this exciting new product.
