Liquid Handling for Genotyping

Lower Costs, Increase Throughput and Significantly Improve Data Quality

Echo Liquid Handlers use non-contact acoustic liquid transfer technology to enable miniaturization of genotyping assays in 384- and 1536-well format. The tip-less technology of the Echo makes it a perfect solution for genotyping in any mid- to high-throughput lab. 

Echo 525 Acoustic Liquid HandlerCommon genotyping methods tend to be characterized by relatively slow throughput and data variability. Lowering the genotyping reaction volumes is a way used to reduce the reacion costs for the genotyping applications. Tip-less, touch-less and acoustic-based transfers with the Echo liquid handlers greatly simplifies assay development efforts and reduces costs for genotyping. Precise and accurate drop placement minimizes the chances of cross-contamination and makes it possible to transfer liquids from any well of a source plate to any well of a 96-, 384- or 1536-well destination plate.

Key Benefits

  • Significant cost savings over traditional and chip-based microfluidics approaches
  • A great fit to any laboratory due to being compatible with any chemistry and detection techniques
  • Significant reduction of assay development iterations with multiplexed PCR conditions
  • Fast and low-volume reaction setups in sub-microliter volumes, while maintaining/improving data quality1

Access Systems for a High-Throughput and Walk-Away Solution

To expand these benefits even further, the Access Laboratory Workstation and Access Systems incorporate the Echo Liquid Handler into a turnkey, automated solution for high throughput genotyping studies.

Genomic Reagents Portfolio

Our reagents are powered by Solid Phase Reversible Immobilization or SPRI technology, which uses SPRI paramagnetic beads to selectively bind nucleic acids by size. It’s ideal for nucleic acid extraction from cells, tissue, blood and even challenging formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples.
