Automated labeling at the push of a button
The system’s automated, high-throughput capacity significantly reduces hands-on time and facilitates easy workflow integration by labeling each sample in 30 seconds, with the capacity to label up to 48 different samples.
The AutoFox sample deck is driven by a custom three-axis robot that moves samples, reagents, and quenching solutions directly to and from the optofluidic chip, automating full HRPF labeling and minimizing experimental error.
Samples and quench solutions are presented using a 96-well microtiter plate. Twenty-four additional 3 mL wells are provided for on-deck collection of waste and storage of chip wash solutions. The self-aligning chip is designed for precise registration of optical and fluidic trains and is easily installed or removed from the clamshell assembly.
