Automate Manual Pipetting With Flexible, Independent-Tip Liquid Handling Platform

Eight Independent Channel Pipetting Robot (SP-Smart 8)

The SP-Smart 8 offers automated liquid handling for individual tubes or microplate wells. The instrument delivers flexibility and ease-of-use to set up, run and track processes that would otherwise be pipetted manually.

Features and Benefits

Advanced automation boosts ease-of-use and reduces manual inputs. The Smart 8 preserves valuable reagents, to reduce waste, and is easily configurable with racks to hold test tubes, microplates, and reagent troughs.

Smart 8 integrates on- and off-deck modules, such as thermocyclers, shakers, magnetic plates, and readers to optimize liquid handling. The instrument is easily configured for cherry-picking, sequencing library preparation, sample pooling, sample concentration normalization, pipetting and other applications.
