Instrumentation

Automation of key laboratory processes can significantly improve the efficiency of your research program. Incorporating an automated platform into your assay or sample processing workflow also improves standardization and facilitates the tracking of processes while increasing throughput and minimizing hands-on time, thus allowing for more effective use of skilled personnel time.

Why Use Automation?

  • Achieve standardization of assays, procedures and sample processing.
  • Reduce hands-on time for skilled personnel.
  • Increased throughput.

Products

RoboSep™

RoboSep™, the fully automated cell isolation platform, is designed to streamline your cell isolation. The RoboSep™-S and RoboSep™-16 instruments offer true walk-away automation while retaining the speed and simplicity of EasySep™ with as little as 5 minutes of hands-on time.

  • Automate cell isolation
  • Streamline and increase sample throughput
  • Obtain cells that are immediately ready for downstream applications
  • Perform sequential or simultaneous cell isolations
  • Eliminate cross-contamination

Advantages:

  • Achieve faster and more accurate counting of colonies than with manual assays
  • Reduce inter- and intra-individual and laboratory variation in colony counting
  • Save time in staff training and lab workflow
