GENOTYPING

Enable high-density genotyping studies
through high-quality analysis

HOME | APPLICATIONS | Genotyping

Lower Costs, Increase Throughput and Significantly Improved Quality

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.

Eliminate cross-contamination and enable miniaturization of genotyping assays

Echo 525 Liquid Handler Echo® 525 LIQUID HANDLER

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.

Key Benefits

  • Significant cost savings over traditional and chip-based microfluidics approaches
  • Elimination of the need for laboratory retooling through the use of any PCR chemistry and detection methodology
  • Significant reduction of assay development iterations with multiplexed PCR conditions
