Enable high-density genotyping studies through high-quality analysis
Inconsistent sample transfer with tip-based pipetting increases sample use and prohibits the use of high density 384- or 1536-well formats. Echo liquid handlers use non-contact acoustic liquid transfer to eliminate cross contamination and enable miniaturization of genotyping assays.
Common genotyping methods tend to be characterized by relatively slow throughput and data variability. Efforts to reduce reagent costs can lead to cross-contamination as well as additional validation required by new detection equipment. Furthermore, tip-based liquid handlers typically require a number of tip changes and intermediate dilutions. Tip-less, touch-less transfers with the Echo liquid handler eliminate these concerns, greatly simplifying assay development efforts and reducing costs. Precise, accurate drop placement eliminates cross-contamination and makes it possible to transfer liquids from any well of a source plate to any well of a destination plate in 96-, 384-, and 1536-well formats.
