New Adaptive Robotic Liquid Pipettor From Hudson Control Group

(Springfield, NJ)- Hudson Control Group recently announced they have added new
features to their highly productive Hudson SOLO™ High Resolution Liquid
Dispenser. The new SOLO™ has the added capability of supporting a grouping of
multiple syringes (up to 10) with varying bore sizes to support very tiny (<1 uL) to
very large (>10 mL) aspirating and dispensing volumes, all on the same unit. With
the smallest footprint of any comparable liquid-handling robot, the low cost SOLO is
able to perform DNA transformations, cherry picking, serial dilutions and plate
replications.. In addition, the new SOLO™ has an optional peristaltic pump for highspeed
tip washing, which saves cycle time vs. traditional washing with a syringepump
when using the optional fixed tip.

A compact 14″ x 16″ (355mm x 400mm) footprint easily fits on lab benchtops and
into standard fume hoods and bio-safety cabinets. Compatible with 24-, 96-, 384-, and
1536-well plate formats, it also has the ability for non-contact dispensing into
microplates and slides. This product also has a very broad dynamic range and the
ability to handle reactions in a sterile environment.

The SOLO™ can be loaded and operated manually, but is also fully compatible with
robot loading systems from most manufacturers, including Hudson Control’s own
PlateCrane EX®. It can also be used in-line with the Hudson Control LabLinx® high
throughput track system for unparalleled high-throughput and ease of setup.

The SOLO™ is supported by Hudson Control Group’s SoftLinx™ software, which
facilitates the robotic pipettor’s integration with most robots and other automated
instruments. If SoftLinx™ doesn’t already include an interface to a specific lab
instrument; the Hudson Control team will develop one. SoftLinx™ will communicate
with each instrument via a serial port from the computer, and comes with its own
easy-to-use GUI. SoftLinx™ features an icon-based, drag-and-drop method editor,
which will oversee the process of moving labware among instruments.
