Biotage Extrahera HV-5000 automated sample preparation workstation

The Biotage Extrahera HV-5000 is an automated workstation dedicated to column-based sample preparation that is able to aspirate and dispense high-volume samples. Automation reduces reliance on human interaction, and so should enable laboratories to increase sample throughput and integrity.

The product maintains the Extrahera family’s small footprint, intuitive software and precision engineering for the uniform processing of samples. With its 4-channel pipette head, the workstation is able to aspirate and dispense high volumes from 250–5000 μL per channel. Combined with precision pipetting and positive pressure sample processing, the system caters to larger sample volumes compatible with 3, 6, 10 and 15 mL column consumables in 12, 24 and 48 position formats. This is alongside a GLP capability and support for classical SPE and SLE column consumable formats.

Complete with dedicated SPE and SLE methods, the system comes pre-programmed with a host of Biotage application notes, sample matrices and user-friendly prompts to assist users in method building. In addition, its SMART pipetting feature prevents aspirating air into samples, by intelligently descending into the sample well at a rate equal to the rate of sample aspiration.

The system has a triple waste segregation system, which helps laboratories to segregate their aqueous, organic and chlorinated waste materials — isolating the toxic chlorinated waste is important, as it requires more expensive handling. If the user has only a single waste line, with a mixture of all aqueous, organic and chlorinated waste outputs, then all of the system’s waste will be more expensive to dispose of safely; the triple waste system should thus enhance sustainability and save disposal costs.
