To facilitate the use of automated liquid handing and laboratory robotics with AFA-based sample preparation, Covaris has developed 8 strip and plate-based products that incorporate advanced sealing technologies (Thin Foil and H-Slit). This suite of automation-compatible acoustical cuvettes is optimized for both access by liquid handler tips and for integration with standard laboratory automation. Complies with the ANSI/SBS-4 standard for 96 well microplates.
Covaris has also constructed a comprehensive developer’s kit that enables users to easily integrate Covaris instruments with current liquid handling systems. The Automation Integration Package contains instructions and supporting documentation for using Covaris instruments with laboratory automation. Included in the Automation Integration Package are:
Mechanical and Software System Requirements
Integration Toolkit Installation Guide
Safety Consideration Checklist
Customers who use the Automation Integration Package have been able to successfully integrate Covaris instrument with liquid handlers from a variety of vendors:
