SAN DIEGO, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Aurora Discovery today announced it has introduced a new liquid handler for rapid, low-volume sample delivery in drug discovery, proteomic, and genomic research. The NanoRAPTR workstation provides researchers with non-contact liquid handling of cells, protein solutions, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) solutions, and viscous solutions into low volume microplates. This workstation rapidly aspirates and dispenses up to eight reagents for volumes starting at 100 nL using on-the-fly motion with extremely high precision and accuracy.
