Automating Assay-Ready Plate Production for High Throughput Screening with the Access™ Laboratory Workstation

To meet the goals for low volume, assay-ready plate production at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, the decision was made to implement the Access workstation from Labcyte. The Access workstation is a compact automation platform that integrates the Echo® liquid handler with a sealer, centrifuge, bulk filler, and peeler. This presentation will highlight the reasons for purchasing the Access workstation, its implementation into the workflow of our laboratory, and the resulting improvements to our throughput and data quality.
