Leveraging the latest liquid handling platforms to reduce costs and sample input requirements.

The CGR is increasingly making use of automated laboratory instrumentation and protocols. The platforms we are currently using include:

•    SPT Labtech Mosquito
•    Formulatrix FAST
•    OpenTron OT-2

The speed and cost effectiveness of our automated protocols is dependent on the layout and consistency of samples submitted. Therefore, we have stricter sample requirements for automated protocols than for manual protocols.
