Liquid Handling

Revolutionary Liquid Handling Using Sound

The Echo liquid handler revolutionizes liquid handling with acoustic energy. Sound waves eject precisely sized droplets from a source onto a microplate, slide or other surface suspended above the source. This product does not use tips, pin tools or nozzles—completely eliminating contact between the instrument and the liquid. Fluids are transferred in nanoliter increments. Larger volumes are transferred at the rate of hundreds of droplets per second.

Revolutionizing Liquid Handling with Sound Echo liquid handlers produce better-quality data and reduce costs

The newest member of the Echo product family enables rapid, higher-volume transfer of protein-based and biochemical reagents. With a 25 nL increment and rapid transfer rates, the Echo 525 liquid handler transfers reagents contamination-free, without sacrificing reagent volume or reagent quality to tubing, tips, or nozzles.  




Echo Liquid Handler for Screening

Echo liquid handlers produce better-quality data and reduce costs when using Echo screening models for sample management or high-throughput plate preparation. Built-in DMSO hydration measurements ensure accurate transfer and allow the user to track compound library integrity.

Echo® Liquid Handler for OMICS

Patented Labcyte Dynamic Fluid Analysis™ technology eliminates the need for calibration to run an assay. These models enable high-speed, contamination-free transfer of cDNA, siRNA vectors, proteins and crystallography reagents—in nanoliter increments.

Echo® Liquid Handler or Screening and OMICS

These models combine the capabilities of the Echo Screening and OMICS platforms. They are ideally suited to labs that must transfer small-molecule compounds and aqueous reagents.
