A New Concept in Lab Automation

Automated Pipetting Using The BRAND Liquid Handling Station

Automation of routine pipetting tasks frees you up for more complex lab 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.


Standardize tedious dilution routines and increase reproducibility of results. Select, save and change pre-defined fluid types on-the-fly.

Enzyme assays

Pipette, mix, and set incubation periods easily and precisely.

Cherry picking

Accurately select and transfer sample subsets into new labware.
More pipetting, less programming

Working with the Liquid Handling Station

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. Watch the video to see how easy it is to work with the Liquid Handling Station.

Benefits of the Liquid Handling Station

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.
