Protein Expression: The ProLink Express is the world’s first FULLY automated proteomics workcell. This unique system is the first robot system to integrate all plate-delivery and transfer operations, together with fully-automated data tracking, from initial bacterial colony picking all the way through final protein expression and measurement. ProLink Express links together all the components needed for DNA expression of gene libraries. It will enable automated gene expression for functional genomics, gene improvement or any other type of genomic research involving bacterial cultures, DNA prep and protein expression.
Gene Assembly: ProLink Express’ inherent plate delivery, liquid handling, thermocycler and absorbance reader instruments provide PCR gene-assembly capacity with a throughput greater than that of any other system today, thanks to SoftLinx software’s ability to process multiple plates through different stages of the process simultaneously.
Monoclonal Antibody Development and Production: The ProLink Express is ideal for monoclonal antibody development. ProLink ‘s remarkable capacity to perform multiple processes simultaneously will rapidly, and accurately, identify and isolate hybridomas producing desired monoclonal antibodies. The ProLink Express will process these cells through the elaborate series of repetitive steps required to statistically isolate the desired hybridomas automatically, keeping track in its database of every sample in every well throughout the process.
The ProLink Express relieves technicians of the burden of what is usually a mind-numbing, error-prone process of repeated dilutions and analyses of the multiplexed hybridoma population to eventually get them down to a single type in a microplate well through dilution cloning.
ELISAs: With its in-line room-temperature and controlled-temperature incubators, reagent dispensers, pipettors, plate-handlers and plate readers (including seal-piercing and/or lid-handling capability), the ProLink Express is ready-made to perform ELISAs of nearly any description or complexity. Multiple incubation steps and complicated reagent and conjugate requirements are no problem for the multi-tasking flexibility or the ProLink Express.
