Beckman Coulter Life Sciences Biomek Echo One System

Danaher subsidiary Beckman Coulter Life Sciences has launched its Biomek Echo One system for high-throughput genomic sample preparation. The platform is intended to provide acoustic liquid handling options for genomic applications, including high-throughput isothermal DNA assemblies and library sample prep for next-generation sequencing. The new system combines the existing Echo 525 Acoustic Liquid Handler and the Biomek i7 Hybrid Workstation and can integrate with existing laboratory automation instrumentation. It can perform library preparation steps like extraction, fragmentation, ligation, normalization, and pooling, as well as requisite actions like centrifugation, shaking, and thermal incubation.
