The Liquidator Manual 96 well Pipetting System brings Flexibility and Productivity to the Genomics Workflow
In this video you can follow the work of Dr. Natalia Ivanova, Lead DNA Scientist, and see how the Rainin Liquidator 96 plays a fundamental role in the numerous liquid handling procedures required to process her DNA samples.
Application 1: DNA Extraction from Animal and Plant samples
A typical day involves processing 20-40 plates using a variety of sample sources. For robotic DNA extraction, the Liquidator 96 is used to set up the sample plate prior to transfer to the automated platform.
The Liquidator's flexibility enables quick and easy, one-handed volume change between steps.
The Liquidator is then used for adding protein wash buffer during the wash and precipitation stages.
Dr Ivanova says that using the Liquidator 96 is advantageous as it "..allows you to control the speed for slow aspiration and dispense. You can change volume in a single motion to move to the next step without interruption. This prevents introduction of air bubbles and contamination."
Application 2: DNA Amplification using PCR
To set up PCR plates, 2µl of extracted DNA sample is dispensed into a pre-made PCR plate containing master mix.
Liquidator enables the easy handling of such small volumes.
Application 3: Cycle Sequencing
PCR Reaction Setup
