In this section we list solutions we have developed to automate various processes in the biological, drug discovery and medical fields. If you don’t see what you are looking for, contact us, we can almost certainly help you.
Hudson’s Electronic Scientist (HES) is a powerful new tool designed to assist researchers discover new drug molecules. HES puts together some of the most powerful computational chemistry tools together in a novel, iterative manner that finds biologically active molecules in a large compound library with incredible efficiency. In addition, HES is an expert system that learns more about your target every iteration, and uses to this knowledge to build 3-dimensional models of your system to provide medicinal chemists information that will help them convert your newly discovered leads into clinical candidates.
The Dried Blood Spot Processor (DBS) automates the identification, punching and inserting of dried blood spot samples into a 96 well micro plate, creating an accurate record on computer disk of the location of each sample. The DBS can be used for all tests which utilize a dried sample spot, including neonatal, HIV, tissue screening, and hemoglobin testing.
This compact workstation supports all sorts of ELISA assays. The combination of the SOLO and Micro10x makes is possible to build any assay template including standards, and serial dilutions. Different pipette heads can be used to support a wide variety of sample sizes.
The ProLink Express™ represents a breakthrough in integrating laboratory instruments that will change the way researchers use automation. It is the first fully-automated proteomics workcell that integrates all plate delivery and transfer operations with complete data tracking. It automates the entire protein expression process, from initial bacterial colony picking through final protein expression and measurement.
Hudson’s RapidHit Simultaneous Automated HitPicking System is a compact, self-contained system that allows users to obtain assay plates comprised of the actual hits detected in a primary screen using the same compound source plates that provided the primary screen. The RapidHit uses the output files produced by the plate reader as they become available, and automatically selects and transfers “hits” based on user-entered criteria.
Hudson Robotics' VaryScreen I is a versatile assay screening and development system. It can be used to develop, run and automate all sorts of in-vitro assays Conduct multiple assay types on a single workcell: ALPHA Screens, UV/Vis Absorbance, Fluorescence Polarization, Luminescence, FRET and ELISA, and others. Flexibility for on-the-fly assay development: Easily develop new assays, model protocols, optimize conditions and validate results.
Hudson's new VaryScreen ADME-Tox System is an all-in-one system that is ready, out of the box, to run many of the necessary screens typically used to determine the pharmaceutical profile of a potential drug candidate. It contains liquid handling robots to set up plates for each of the required protocols, and several microplate handlers to store and transport the plates between the liquid handlers, incubator and multi-mode reader. The system comes with a number of built-in standard protocols to help users get their profiling up and running as quickly as possible.
A collaborative effort between Hudson Robotics and Obotics, this workcell supports a wide variety of sample preparation functions, including SPE/SLE processing, hydrolysis and derivativization, with all of the requisite microplate and liquid handling features required to automate the entire process.
