Vision-Assisted Liquid-Handling Robot for Special Consumables

Andrew Alliance’s 1000G-XL advanced liquid handling robot uses not just 0.2 μL to 1000 μL Gilson pipettes but also long tips (beyond the length of 70 mm) for certain exclusive consumables.

The robot can be employed in a number of applications, for example, LC/MS sample preparation, serial dilution, pooling of libraries, concentration normalization on the microplate, and PCR/RTqPCR sample preparation, to name a few.
