NEW APPLICATION NOTE: Automating COVID-19 Viral RNA Extraction

Automation of COVID-19 RNA purification using HALO Mag nucleic acid extraction kit on VERSA 10

Tube to Plate Reformatting, Made Easy!

Looking to automate the tedious task of transferring patient samples from tubes to the 96-well plate of your DNA or RNA extraction instrument? Look no further than the VERSA 10 Automated Liquid Handling Workstation to streamline your tube to plate reformatting.

Fast and easy reformatting is enabled by the 4-channel robotic head, aliquoting samples from sample tubes to 96-well extraction plates. Sample tracking is possible by either importing an excel file or directly scanning sample barcodes into the VERSA 10 software.

Accelerate the First Step of your DNA/RNA Extraction and PCR Workflow

Automating this step in a molecular testing workflow will reduce the chance of human error and exposure time of staff to patient samples. The VERSA 10 is a compact desktop automated liquid handling platform that takes up little laboratory space. The open nature instrument software allows you to create and modify protocols as needed, facilitating the easy incorporation of new molecular tests into your testing portfolio.
