High-throughput assay miniaturisation workstation

Monday, 10 September, 2007 | Supplied by: Beckman Coulter Australia



The Beckman Coulter BioRAPTR FRD microfluidic workstation is available in two configurations - standalone and integrated with Beckman Coulter's PARADIGM Detection Platform, Biomek NXp liquid handler and BRT Robotic Transport. With the addition of the bioRAPTR low-volume workstation, Beckman Coulter's automation capabilities span the complete range of volumes, from tubes to microplates to 3458-well ChemLib plates.

Suitable for assay miniaturisation applications in drug discovery, genomics and proteomics, the BioRAPTR non-contact, high-precision dispenser delivers increased capacity and speed along with reduced reagent and consumable costs. With the BioRAPTR's design, the plate moves while the pipetting head is stationary, creating a shorter fluid path, for high precision with low dead volume. Flexible programming is easily done through an Excel spreadsheet and allows a variety of reagents to be dispensed into any well at a range of volumes. The BioRAPTR has been validated with biological samples, demonstrating high cell viability.

Integration of the BioRAPTR with Beckman Coulter's Biomek and PARADIGM systems enables high-throughput applications such as compound screening. The company has also recently introduced a companion workstation, the PicoRAPTR, a multimode workstation that features both piezo and syringe dispensing for low-volume aspirate and dispense operations involved in dose response curve generation and compound reformatting activities.
