Sample Manipulation


A prerequisite for many projects is the manipulation of sample collections prior to analysis. We have liquid handling robots for manipulating plates of samples in a high-throughput fashion, and systems for maintaining large sample collection in 2D-barcoded tubes.

Our XL20 robot automates 2D-barcoded tube sorting, sample retrieval, and tracking. Sample tracking is achieved through barcoding all points throughout processing. Our internal LIMS logs all of the collected data (sample 2D barcode, location, volume, concentration etc). for comprehensive sample storage. The UMGC currently stores and manages tens of thousands of samples for clients who are routinely using one of our services.
