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.

Barcode Scanning Functionality Included!

Compatible With Your Current Workflows – no need to buy a new extraction instrument!

The VERSA 10 is compatible with the standard 96-well SBS footprint plates used in automated extraction platforms. This includes automated extraction instruments like the KingFisher Flex automated extraction system, meaning that the VERSA 10 can easily fit into your lab’s current extraction workflow.

Key Features

  • Up to 96 sample tubes on deck at a time
  • Manual Barcode scanning for sample tracking
  • Compatible with standard 24 and 96 well plates
  • Pre-programmed protocols
  • 4-channel pipette head
