Automation is present across the workflow to simplify operation and ensure accurate results. The system supports a wide variety of standard and deep-well plates, and 12 x 75-mm 5-mL tubes in the tube loader.
Novel 3D AutoSampler Technology
The novel 3D AutoSampler uses a fixed probe and moves the plate in horizontal and vertical directions to minimize sample-to-sample cross-contamination and speed up cleaning.
Sensors on the probe enable the system to accurately move the sample to the probe, calculate height of the tube or plate, and automatically recoil the probe if it touches the container or base plate surface. This unique design is aimed at reducing cross-contamination and clogs, and allows for automatic recovery when flow problems are encountered. It also enables faster cleaning between samples.
Plate motion uses a fixed probe and moves the plate (and sample) in horizontal and vertical directions.
