75% of the labs participating in the survey purchased an ASSIST PLUS. They chose this pipetting robot for greater flexibility through the automation of multichannel pipettes. The newly launched D-ONE single channel pipetting module also allows the platform to perform tasks requiring only a single channel , effectively processing tedious tasks, such as serial dilutions, sample normalization, hit picking or pipetting of complex plate layouts with minimal hands-on time.
The main benefit of automation with the ASSIST PLUS and the VOYAGER cited in the survey was the ability to reduce errors for greater consistency, accuracy and reproducibility of results. In addition, automating laborious and time-consuming liquid transfer steps means that fewer staff are needed to process more specimens, enhancing lab throughput. Based on these positive experiences, 92 % of customers plan to use their pipetting robot for additional applications in the years to come – including allergy and infectious disease testing, pharmacogenomics, targeted genome sequencing and research into antimicrobial resistance – enhancing their workflows and ensuring they are adaptable to the diagnostic needs of the future.
