Due to their outstanding throughput, high transfer accuracy and precision down to nanoliter volumes and any-well to any-well transfer capabilities, Echo Liquid Handlers have long been integral to state-of-art sample management and high throughput screening solutions.
Offering these same benefits, the Echo 650T Liquid Handler now supports sample transfer directly from Echo Qualified sample tubes enabling a fully non-contact dispensing workflow from sample storage all the way to assay ready plates. Capable of transferring as little as 2.5 nL from 384-well and 1536-well microplates and now acoustic tubes arrayed in a 96-tube format, the Echo 650T Liquid Handler is ready to meet the needs of a wide variety of molecular and cellular assays.
Tube enabled Echo Liquid Handler to address a diverse range of applications
Simplified sample screening through direct transfer from Echo Qualified sample tubes
Accurate, precise movement of nanoliter-scale quantities, enabling assay miniaturization, further reducing costs
Greatly simplified assay development and dilution processes through the flexibility to transfer any volume of liquid from any well to any other well
Better results through direct dilution of compounds, an improvement over serial dilution method
Acoustic Sample Tube Management
The FluidX AcoustiX Sample Tube (FAST) was developed in collaboration with and is sold by Brooks Life Sciences for ultra-high-density sample storage. The acoustic tube offers the following benefits:
Enhanced sample integrity through unique cap design – permits over 500 cap/decap cycles
Random access to any stored sample minimizing freeze/thaw cycles
Echo Qualified Tube design and manufacturing – compatible with Echo 650T and 655T Liquid Handlers
Working volume of 15-90 µL and 20-90 µL with DMSO and aqueous fluids respectively
To meet the broad spectrum of sample throughput needs, the Echo 650T Liquid Handler seamlessly integrates with the highly configurable Access Dual or Single Robot System accommodating a wide variety of devices and enabling a fully automated workflow. Whether your workflow requires plate reformatting, hit picking, daughter plate creation or adding samples and reagents for screening assays or genomics workflows, Labcyte offers a fully integrated Echo 650T Liquid Handler solution to meet your needs.
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.
Broad Range of Applications
With a combination of high transfer speeds and diverse fluid transfer capabilities, the Echo 650T Liquid Handler supports a wide range of applications in drug discovery and basic research.
