Aurora Biomed to Launch New VERSA 10 Automated Nucleic Acid Purification Workstation at Pittcon 2013

Nucleic Acid Purification
Aurora is proud to announce the launch of their newest robot, the VERSA 10 Nucleic Acid Purification (NAP) Workstation at the 2013 Pittcon. This compact, automated liquid handling workstation is an ideal, cost-effective solution for labs carrying out magnetic bead-based nucleic acid preparation and PCR plate setups.

As one of the smallest automated liquid handling systems on the market, the VERSA 10 NAP enables researchers to carry out large projects with limited bench space. This versatile workstation has six deck positions to accommodate 96- and 384-well plates, tip racks, temperature control positions, magnets and shakers. The VERSA 10 is equipped with an eight-channel syringe pipettor with single-channel function allowing researchers to accomplish a wide range of protocols. The flexible, drag-and-drop software lets users create protocols for most commercially-available kits and reagents, allowing an easy transition into automation using optimized, trusted protocols.

Please visit Aurora Biomed at Pittcon Booth #2802 (Exhibiting as Aurora Instruments, their sister company) to learn more about the VERSA 1100 SPE Workstation.
