Singapore: Agilent Technologies has launched Encore Multispan Liquid Handling System, featuring an array of unique technological advances in a single instrument. The Encore Multispan Liquid Handling System will enable new automation capabilities that improve every stage of the research process.
The Encore Multispan System combines innovative multispan pipetting with the reach of a built-in robotic arm and intelligent software control to deliver a new level of productivity and throughput. Using the Encore Multispan System, researchers will be able to easily automate a larger portion of their workflow and significantly expand their walkaway time.
"In partnership with our customers, we worked to understand the many bottlenecks and limitations associated with sample-prep automation and created a unique solution," said Yvonne Linney, vice president and general manager of automation solutions at Agilent. "It combines advanced liquid handling and robotics to enable true sample-to-analysis automation."
"Agilent's distinct expertise in both workflow automation and liquid handling has allowed us to integrate innovative technologies into a single platform, and empower scientists to take their research to the next level in terms of flexibility, throughput and ultimately lab productivity," Linney added. "With the introduction of the Encore Multispan System, Agilent is offering scientists the ability to reach beyond routine liquid handling and experience the highest levels of efficiency and productivity in their laboratories."
