The Access Dual Robot System (DRS) is a compact, modular, high-capacity, and high-throughput platform, designed and optimized for the use of Echo Liquid Handlers in sample management workflows. It is the only automation platform on the market compatible with the Echo 655T Liquid Handler, enabling the production of assay-ready plates from acoustic sample tubes. The system combines industry-leading devices and software with ergonomic and environment management options to provide a complete, easy-to-use, store-to-assay sample management solution.
Maximum Throughput and Uptime for Echo Liquid Handler Integrations
Superior Flexibility in a Compact Footprint
Ergonomically Designed and Certified for Laboratory Use
Minimized Sample Hydration with Environmental Management Option
Includes Tempo Software 2.0 with Advanced Features for Large Scale Applications
FluidX AcousticX Sample Tube by Brooks Life Sciences
The FluidX AcousticX Sample Tube (FAST) transforms sample management workflows by enabling acoustic dispensing directly from tubes. The meticulous tube design features a revolutionary cap to increase automated capping cycles from 15 to over 500 cycles, a DMSO resistant gasket to reduce hydration and evaporation, and replicate 2D barcodes that provide a clear path for acoustic energy to pass through to the sample.

Configure and reconfigure system modules to meet application needs. Dock and undock up to 6 standardized modules for integrating echo systems, plate handling devices and plate handling stores.
Access to Devices
Easily access devices for standalone operation or maintanance for configuring system modules with retractable shelves, turntables, amd automated docking systems. The automated push button docking system allows operators to temporarily undock modules without stopping runs that are in progress.
Preserve Sample Quality
An integrated environment distribution system avoids DMSO hydration, maintains sample integrity, and ensures downstream data quality. The system evenly distributes and recirculates conditioned air from laboratory HVAC system to each module of the platform, providing a dry, ambient internal environment.
Tempo 2.0 Automation Control Software
With Tempo 2.0 software Access DRS operators can easily coordinate plate handling tasks, manage consumable inventories, and report information in real time to LIMS or databases. Like previous versions, Tempo 2.0 software remains the only automation software that readily imports protocols from Echo Software Applications, simplifying protocol setup and schedule optimazation.
Tempo 2.0 software includes new features to promote usability, throughput and uptime.
Module and device presence detection
Run throughput optimization
Improved Integration with LIMS
Device and consumable utilization tracking
Advanced error recovery
Simultaneous run processing and prioritization
More methods for plate labeling
Integration with external labaratory or building management systems
Inventory search capabilities
Mosaic TFM by Titian Software
The Mosaic Tempo Fullfilment Module (MTFM) from Titian Software combines the scheduling power of Tempo 2.0 software with the inventory management expertise of Mosaic sample management software. This new model for Mosaic software captures the exact transfer and survey volumes as well as sample concentrations reported by Echo Liquid Handlers. Combined with sample lifecycle information, Mosaic software can better track sample distribution, freeze thaw cycles, and tube decap/cap operations to monitor sample integrity and utilization.
