Demands for reduced costs and higher throughput have resulted in a drive towards miniaturization in drug discovery. As an increasing number of assays are performed in low volume 384 and 1536 well plate formats, the scaling down of assay volumes accordingly is an important step. These developments require liquid handling instrumentation that also meets customer demands of flexibility, accuracy, precision, and most important robustness at low volumes.
The Equator HTS pipetting system and the Latitude bulk dispense product provide a complete product range for low volume dispensing in drug discovery. The proprietary spot-on technology of Deerac common to all products provides a robust and reliable solution that can be used across a broad range of applications.
