Laboratory work involves handling liquid and Hudson Robotics offers several automated liquid handling solutions. These instruments are both accurate and precise. They’re also very flexible, and can easily be used as free-standing instruments, or integrated into a workcell.
The Hudson SOLO™ liquid handling robot is an automated pipettor that can do anything expected of a hand-held pipettor perfectly, at about half the cost of other laboratory robotics platforms, without human error. The Solo works well below 1ul (1-3ul CV=1%; 0.25ul CV=4%). The Solo will fit into most biological safety cabinets and fume hoods. The SOLO can be loaded and operated manually, but is also compatible with robot loading systems from most manufacturers, including our PlateCrane EX.
Hudson's Micro10x™ Robotic Benchtop Dispenser combines fast filling speed, high accuracy, and extreme flexibility. It fills 96 wells with 100ul in 10sec (CV rounds to 0%), and sensitive controls permit custom tip touches and fill patterns. An optional valve switch allows the Micro10x to automatically add reagents in sequence, or switch between buffers during plasmid purification.
The Micro10x works in volumes as low as 4ul. This is the only small dispenser capable of tip-touch. Its positive-displacement pump head is calibrated in 10nl increments., and it never requires recalibration. The fluid path is autoclavable.
PERFECT for cells, 384-, 1536-ready.
Imagine a PERFECT serial dilution in about four minutes (R > 0.99). The SOLO Plus combines the best of our liquid handling solutions in one powerful product. It consists of the SOLO robotic pipettor and the Micro10x microplate dispenser. The SOLO has full access to the nest of the Micro10x, and they're made to work together, allowing rapid, highly accurate (CV almost 0%) dispensing, and then highly accurate, highly optimizable pipetting. Perfect for cell work, ELISA Prep.
The RapidWash™ high-speed washer for 96- and 384-well microplates offers high-throughput automated washing for ELISA, cellular assays, and any other process requiring washes and aspiration. Controls are sensitive enough to allow sensitive cell washing. Use as a standalone instrument, or integrated into a larger system.Expect robust, reliable performance, ease of use, and sensitive control from Hudson Robotics.
Extraction Tools – FilterPress™
Hudson Robotics introduces the FilterPress™, a powerful alternative to vacuum nests, magnetic beads and centrifuges for automated DNA Purification, Plasmid Preps, and Solid Phase Extraction of any kind. It does the same job as a vacuum manifold, but it's capable of higher pressure than vacuum, useful for difficult samples. The FilterPress is fully articulated, so you can walk away. And if you're used to vacuum, you'll probably find it much less messy.
Extraction Tools – VaryVac
Hudson’s VaryVac™ robotic vacuum nest for filter plates fully automates vacuum-based purifications and vacuum control. An on-board computer controls and monitors vacuum ramp-up, hold level, hysteresis and ramp down. It will notify the user if a desired threshold vacuum level cannot be reached. Again, walk away from this fully-automated solution.
