New NanoScreen multi-format liquid handling system for laboratories
NanoScreen, a specialist in automated liquid handling products for the life sciences, has announced the release of a new liquid handling workstation.
ORION is a flexible, multi-format, high precision pipetting robot designed to meet the liquid handling needs of today's laboratories.
'We wanted to design a high performance liquid handling workstation that is easily accessible, programmable, expandable and simple to integrate,' says Imad Mansour, chief science officer. 'ORION is ideal for any plate-based application.'
The workstation features a 12-position deck and many dispense head options. Its compact size allows it to be used in most laboratory fume hoods or on any standard laboratory bench top.
ORION's human interface, Cosmo, is designed with the 'walk up' user in mind. Users do not have to drill down through menus and multiple dialog boxes in order to do the most basic of things, such as building methods and screening compounds, allowing simplicity for high throughput screening in the laboratory.
