The first widespread use of the Echo liquid handler was in sample management. This innovative product enables the creation of assay-ready plates by making it possible to transfer compounds in 2.5 nL increments. Researchers can dramatically reduce sample volume requirements by transferring <100 nL of compound per well—with no sacrifice of precision.
The availability of small- and large-scale robotic systems meets a variety of needs and helps ensure the greatest degree of throughput and efficiency in assay plate production.
- Elimination of the cost of disposable tips typically used by traditional liquid handling processes
- Reduced sample volume requirements, enabling longer use of precious libraries and reduced waste
- Rapid, real-time feedback on sample integrity and DMSO hydration levels
