Since the launch of the Echo Liquid Handler in 2004, scientists in drug discovery have relied on acoustic liquid handling to reliably transfer DMSO-based small molecules into assay-ready plates for high-throughput screening. In recent years, the addition of Dynamic Fluid Analysis has broadened the types of fluids that can be transferred on Echo systems, scientists have begun using acoustic liquid handling to transfer biological materials in a range of applications to improve efficiency, data quality, and reduce experiment costs.
Following this presentation, details on the next generation of acoustic liquid handlers, the Echo 650 Series systems, will be provided. This new series of liquid handlers from Labcyte represents a step forward in acoustic liquid handling; with upgraded fluidics, streamlined architecture, and the option of transfer from acoustic tubes. Attendees will hear about the improvements this new series offers and review data from testing performed to assure that these systems will deliver the superior performance that researchers have come to expect from Echo Liquid Handlers.
