Aurora Sells Several Liquid Handling Stations to NIH s Chemical Genomics Center

NEW YORK, Feb. 1 (GenomeWeb News) - The NIH's Chemical Genomics Center will purchase several low volume liquid handling workstations from Aurora Discovery, the company said today.


The center plans to use the systems to develop chemical-probe research as part of the NIH's Molecular Libraries Screening Centers Network initiative.


Aurora sells two low volume liquid hanlding systems, called Flying Reagent Dispenser and Picoliter Rapid Transfer Robot.
