FEM Sequencing and Genotyping Platform

  • Three Freedom EVO robotic platforms offers an advanced, proven and reliable liquid handling system for different scales and throughputs. Freedom EVO workstations can automate a diverse range of applications including primary and secondary screening, cell growth and maintenance, nucleic acid sample preparation, hit picking, library management and sample weighing.
  • The GS FLX+ System features the unique combination of long reads, exceptional accuracy and high-throughput, making the system well suited for larger genomic projects.
  • The 36 capillary 3130xl DNA Analyzer and the 96-capillary 3730xl DNA Analyzer are the Gold Standard for high throughput genetic analysis. Use this for DNA fragment analysis applications such as microsatellites, AFLP, SNP analysis, mutation detection and traditional DNA sequencing.
  • Illumina's iSCAN and the Infinium BeadChips offer researchers the flexibility to genotype samples with hundreds of thousands to millions of markers that deliver dense genome-wide coverage with the most up-to-date content available from the scientific community.
  • The ViiA™ 7 Dx Instrument puts high-productivity qPCR at your fingertips. With the new OptiFlex™ optical system and 4 interchangeable block formats from 96-well to 384-well to TaqMan® Array Micro Fludic Card, the ViiA™ 7 is available for in-vitro diagnostics use.
  • The LightCycler ® 480 Real-Time PCR System is a high throughput gene quantification or genotyping real-time PCR platform with exchangable blocks for 96 and 384 samples in multiwell plates.
  • The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer is the most successful microfluidics-based platform available commercially, offering solutions for the analysis of DNA, RNA, proteins and cells.
  • The NanoDrop™ 8000 spectrophotometer takes full-spectrum UV-Vis absorbance measurements of up to eight samples simultaneously.
  • The Thermo Scientific NanoDrop™ 3300 Fluorospectrometer performs broad spectrum fluorescent analysis in a versatile, high-performance instrument.
  • The Synergy 2 is BioTek's high-performance multi-mode plate reader designed for the life science research and drug discovery markets.
  • The CyflowSpace-Partec is an ultracompact 3-Laser Flow Cytometer for applications in cell and particle analysis as well as absolute counting.
