Small footprint automated liquid handling system

Agilent Automation Solutions' Bravo Automated Liquid Handling Platform has a space-saving nine plate-position footprint which has been designed to fit inside a standard laminar flow hood, enabling automated liquid handling for cell-based assays or hazardous reagent handling.

The Bravo uses high-accuracy pipette heads for dispensing from 100nl to 200ul in 96, 384, and 1536 well formats or to a single column or row of any of these plate types. 

Pipette heads can be changed in minutes, and numerous platepad options are available to enable a wide range of assays. In addition the uniquely open design of the Bravo platform permits access from all sides for simple integration with other devices and unencumbered standalone use. The Bravo is designed for high reliability and durability, performing consistently while providing industry leading speed and precision.

The Bravo platform is powered by VWorks Automation Control software with its outstanding event driven scheduler, easy-to-use interface, and innovative error recovery technology, ensuring complete control is easy for all levels of operators.

Typical applications served by the Bravo platform include compound distribution, assay plate preparation, microplate replication, library reformatting, reagent addition, serial dilutions, DNA extraction as well as cell assays and screening.
