Pipetting Robot

Automated pipetting

Pipetting robot

A new concept in lab automation

Automation of routine pipetting tasks

The new Liquid Handling Station (LHS) pipetting robot from BRAND is your entry point into laboratory automation. With an excellent price/performance ratio and straightforward operation, the system is economical for low and medium throughput labs. Typical applications include:

PCR and qPCR
Accurately pipette small volumes of precious reagents and DNA samples.
Enzyme assays
Pipette, mix and set incubation times quickly and precisely
ELISA
Standardize tedious dilution routines and increase reproducibility of results. Select, save and change pre-defined fluid types on-the-fly.
Cherry picking
Accurately select and transfer sample subsets into new labware.

SIMPLE, EASY, and EFFICIENT

Liquid automation systems

Find out how simple automated pipetting can be with the intuitive BRAND software. Set up your own, customized methods in minutes. The procedure is as simple as preparing for manual pipetting. Instead of using predefined protocols, you work with your own pipetting procedures that can be saved for further use. Unique and convenient features save time in programming and method execution.

 

For example:

  • the simulation mode lets you verify and optimize your method
  • email notifications inform you of manual interventions and protocol progress
  • and liquid ends can be changed without tools

The SmartExtraction LHS-Kit

Automated isolation of high molecular weight DNA (HMW) from bacteria, yeast, tissue samples, whole blood and rodent tails.

The extraction process is based on the adsorption of the genomic DNA onto Smart Modified Surfaces and does not require magnetic particles for DNA binding. This means that the DNA binds directly to the surface of the modified BRAND tips.

Benefits of the pipetting robot

The Liquid Handling Station provides maximum flexibility for small and medium sample throughput and varied pipetting tasks. It closes the gap between electronic pipettes and large, expensive equipment. Seven ANSI / SLAS formatted workplaces can be freely assigned, including PCR tubes and strips, microcentrifuge tubes, reservoirs, and 96- or 384-well plates. Liquid ends are available in three single-channel sizes and two 8-channel sizes. The Liquid Handling Station's compact design and space-saving front door make it an ideal fit where benchtop space is limited.

Teleshake 95 with fixed mounted basic plate for Liquid Handling Station

With the Teleshake 95 module, shaking and heating of samples in microplates and PCR consumables is possible directly inside the Liquid Handling Station pipetting robot from BRAND, without removing the plates from the robot. This saves time and reduces the risk of sample contamination. Applications include sample incubation and intensive stirring of samples during reaction at room temperature or higher.Thanks to its modular design, installation of the heater/shaker is easy. Simply place it on the worktable of the Liquid Handling Station and connect it via a USB port to a PC or notebook and the included

The SmartExtraction LHS-Kit has been designed for automated isolation of high molecular weight DNA (HMW) from bacteria, yeast, tissue samples, whole blood and rodent tails. The kit is based on the patented SmartExtraction Technology using Smart Modified Surfaces invented by IST Innuscreen GmbH. The extraction process is based on the adsorption of the genomic DNA onto Smart Modified Surfaces and does not require magnetic particles for DNA binding. This means that the DNA binds directly to the surface of the modified BRAND tips. After washing, the genomic DNA is eluted from the Smart Modified Surfaces and is ready for use in subsequent downstream applications. The entire extraction process requires only simple mixing by up and down movement of the modified BRAND

Liquid Handling Station flow

Benchtop Cleanroom

The Liquid Handling Station flow is BRAND®’s pipetting robot for applications where samples must be protected from particles and microorganisms. Its brand new FlowBox directs the filtered air flow in laminar, horizontal layers across the consumables, such as plates. With the door closed, the air volume inside the cabinet is replaced 260 times per hour, and exits through openings in the front door.

Save precious time with liquid handling automation

The Liquid Handling Station from BRAND: fast, quiet, and reliable.

The speeds and the particularly dynamic movements of the axis system are designed to permit rapid, exact pipetting while simultaneously minimizing the risk of contamination due to loss of liquid drops during movement. Adapters bring the plates/racks used to a single height, reducing unnecessary vertical move - ments. That saves time during pipetting!

Simply uncomplicated!

The Liquid Handling Station from BRAND combines 45 years of experience in the area of manual Liquid Handling with over 30 years in the manufacture of high-precision disposable items. The pipette system works on the same air-interface principle as the piston-operated pipettes widely used in laboratories, and is designed for medium sample throughput. It takes care of simple, monotonous (and frequently error-prone) routine tasks as well as complex pipetting tasks, such as PCR, qPCR or cherry picking, working through them efficiently.

Maximize product protection

A microprocessor-controlled horizontal, laminar air flow safely covers the entire working area. The air drawn in from the environment passes through an H14 HEPA filter (99.995% efficiency). The filtered air is then directed across the working area in a laminar flow pattern.
