Liquid Handling Reimagined

Introducing the Echo 525 Liquid Handler, the first rapid acoustic liquid handler designed specifically for biochemical and genomics reagent transfer. The Echo 525 Liquid Handler and the Echo Software Applications enable scientists to spend more time looking at data. Protocol creation and implementation in the Echo Software Applications are fast and does not require extensive training. Designed for use with the Echo System, the Access Laboratory Workstation expands the Echo 525 Liquid Handler’s utility and further frees up time.

MOVE LIQUIDS with SOUND

Echo Liquid Handling Technology

See how liquid is transferred from any well to any well with the Echo liquid handling technology

The flexibility, speed, accuracy, and precision of the Echo 525 Liquid Handler enable researchers to build assays that are not possible with traditional liquid handlers. The use of acoustic sound energy removes the traditional boundaries of tip and pin tool based liquid handlers. Transfer variable fluid heights and viscosities from one source plate to enable rapid assay creation in one fluid transfer run. Say goodbye to fixed plate designs as the Echo Liquid Handler moves fluids from any well to any well enabling researchers to design the experimental plates they need to make new discoveries.

Efficiently Transfer Build Reagents with Echo® Qualified Reservoir

Echo Qualified Reservoir

Assay assembly and the transfer of one reagent to many wells is simplified using the Echo Qualified Reservoir. With the capability of transferring up to 2.5 mL from each micro-well, you can build your assay without requiring an instrument change – saving time and money.



Key Benefits

  • Highly precise and accurate low volume transfers enabling assay miniaturization
  • Builds assays 50–100 times faster than traditional liquid handlers giving the lab higher capacity from one instrument
  • Suite of Echo Software Applications guide creation of complex protocols for a variety of applications
  • Eliminates pipetting variances that affect assay success
  • Integrates into the Labcyte Access Laboratory Workstation for increased throughput

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.

Flexible and Reliable Transfer of Genomics Reagents

The Echo 525 Liquid Handler transfers a wide range of fluids during one transfer including distilled water, buffers, nucleic acids, and reagents containing up to 50% glycerol. With its versatile fluid range, transfer volume range, any well to any well transfer capability, and powerful applications software the Echo 525 Liquid Handler supports a wide range of genomic assay workflows:

  • Gene Synthesis
  • PCR and qPCR assay set-up
  • RNA and DNA NGS sequencing workflows
  • Sanger sequencing assay set-up
  • Single-cell sample preparation


Precise Transfers in nL Increments

Sample transfer integrity is important for successful data generation. With highly precise and accurate non-contact transfers, the Echo 525 Liquid Handler introduces no cross-contamination during transfer of reagents or DNA.

Versatile System That Supports a Wide Array of Assays and Biochemical Reagents

Biochemical assays require the transfer of multiple fluid types during the experiment. The Echo 525 Liquid Handler successfully transfers antibodies, proteins, water, buffers, and highly viscous fluids from a single source plate making assay set up easy. Any well to any well transfer capability enables the creation of complex, multistep reagent addition and the ability to transfer nanoliter volumes enables successful miniaturization of complex assays.

  • AlphaLISA® assays
  • HTRF® assays
  • ADP-Glo™ assays
  • Cell-based assays
