4LAB Pipetting Station 4 positions, w. UV/Hepa, w. software and notebook

Description

4titude's® 4LAB™ is an automated, high-precision pipetting system specifically designed for low-volume liquid handling. For acceptable PCR results, small volumes of reagents need to be dispensed accurately and consistently, which is tedious, time consuming and prone to human error.

It is available as a 4-position and a 6-position workstation.

4LAB™ is designed to replace manual PCR/qPCR sample preparation. Accuracy, precision and consistency are guaranteed, and reagent wastage is reduced. Unlike complex, multi-purpose robotic systems, our instrument was designed for the researcher without prior robotic experience.

Intuitive set up and programming will save your laboratory time and money straight away.


Easy and Convenient to Use

PC software can be mastered in an hour

No trained technician required

Built-in set-up protocols can be quickly modified and transferred via USB memory stick

Single and 8-channel, 50µl or 200µl automated pipetting modules can be changed without tools

4 interchangeable standard microplate / tip rack adapters and 2 interchangeable reagent vessel adapters available

Other applications include sequencing set-up, HLA typing and SNP detection, etc


Affordable Solution

The most affordable automated pipetting system available

Uses tips that are compatible with Beckman® Biomek® NX, FX & 3000

Cooling block adapters keep sensitive reagents / samples at 7°C for over an hour

Save reagent costs by human error reduction and using low volume PCR plates


Easy to Service

The automated pipetting modules are simple to remove and can be returned for service and calibration

PC software is upgraded via the internet

The entire system is compact and light-weight


Accurate and Precise

Each automated pipetting module is calibrated to ISO-8655 standardsPC software is upgraded via the internet
Excellent results for qPCR standard curve and replicates (details in 'Other Specifications')

Better Precision of pipetting results than manual pipetting (details in 'Other Specifications')


"40% reagent costs and 50% labour costs were saved by adopting the 4LAB™ and 384-well PCR microplates in our SNP assay project which extended to 1 year... ...the 4LAB™ provided the high accuracy and precision we needed."

-Director of the Contract Research Dept, 4LAB™ customer.

Excellent Serial Dilution Results

7 µl NIH3T3 Cell cDNA sample is diluted in 21 µl water at 1:4 ratio for 4 times.
Roche® LightCycler® 480 real-time thermal cycler and Finnzyme DyNAmo® Flash SYBR® Green qPCR kit (F-415L) were used.

Better Precision of pipetting results than manual pipetting


Better Precision Results than Manual Pipetting

Target: Human GAPDH (top curve) was amplified in replicates of 4. 18 µl (master-mix) and 2 µl (cDNA) were pipetted into 20 µl reaction volume. Roche LightCycler® 480 real-time thermal cycler and Invitrogen Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase were used.
