Revvity Fontus Automated Liquid Handling Workstation
Revvity announced the worldwide launch of its Fontus Automated Liquid Handling Workstation for next-generation sequencing and diagnostic research applications. The firm is seeking IVDR registration and plans to begin shipments imminently. Revvity said the workstation incorporates streamlined software, tube-to-plate reformatting, a 96- or 384- array head with partial tip loading, and integrated peripherals. Those peripherals include an on-deck thermocycler, temperature modules, and up to two labware grippers. Revvity said the workstation improves on the deck access, ergonomics, and enclosure of prior Revvity platforms. The Fontus workstation is also available in a preconfigured NGS model that is designed to support fast, accurate NGS library prep automation.
