This week kicks off the 30th year of the Association of Biomolecular Research Facilities, and we’re heading to San Antonio, Texas, for the group’s annual conference. While we’re there, we’ll be meeting with core facility leaders to discuss how acoustic liquid handling can enhance laboratory productivity rates.

The Echo Liquid Handler is already a workhorse in several core lab facilities across the United States. Researchers from many domains have come to rely on the Echo system for its efficiency and accuracy.

During ABRF, Labcyte Application Scientist Jefferson Lai will address two major topics in next-generation sequencing (NGS) that enable a streamlined and miniaturized approach. In his first poster presentation, Lai will report on the growing demands of single-cell research and the need to decipher the transcriptome and its complexity. Using Echo Liquid Handling, we provide a solution for increasing throughput and affordability of RNA-sSeq applications using SMART-Seq V2.

In a second poster, Lai will speak about the use of whole genome sequencing to obtain metagenomic information from microbiome samples. He will also show how using an Echo system cost-effectively miniaturizes this workflow, while producing results at much faster rate.

Applying these solutions can expand the throughput capabilities of core research facilities worldwide. Core laboratories benefit from the automation and reagent savings made possible with the Echo Liquid Handler. Join us on March 23-26, at ABRF to learn more about our growing collection of applications in response to a wide variety of challenges within the genomics space. We look forward to seeing you there!
