NEW YORK, July 10 – Genetix of Hampshire, UK, announced Tuesday the launch of an automated robotic system for managing and developing genomic and cDNA libraries.
Using robotics, the new system, Qselect, is capable of screening cDNA and genomic libraries and then replicating designated samples.
“Until now, people would do this manually, with handheld pin devices,” said Susan Richards, worldwide sales and marketing manager for Genetix. “This allows you to make rapid replicas.”
The system has the capacity for 420 96- or 384-wellplates.
