Hamilton Robotics has announced that the CytoScan automated target preparation solution from Affymetrix Inc. is built on the Microlab NIMBUS 96 workstation from Hamilton Robotics. The Affymetrix NIMBUS target preparation instrument automates target preparation from the CytoScan cytogenetics solutions, which offers broad coverage and high-performance for detecting human chromosomal aberrations.
The Hamilton Microlab NIMBUS 96 is a customizable instrument platform that offers speed, ease of use, and high-performance pipetting in a small footprint. The flexible system combines accurate liquid measurement with software that provides workflow control, file handling, and integration with third-party devices. The compact, affordable system allows laboratories to process up to 96 samples at a time.
Hamilton Robotics tailor-made the Affymetrix NIMBUS for the CytoScan assay using its custom-build process, which includes system definition, final design and system assembly, factory acceptance testing, and site acceptance testing.
