Aurora Discovery, Inc. Introduces The PicoRAPTR Workstation For Life Science Laboratories


10/19/2005 5:11:18 PM

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Aurora Discovery today announced that it has introduced a highly automated, low volume liquid-handling instrument that significantly increases the productivity and performance of life science laboratories. The Picoliter Rapid Transfer Robot (PicoRAPTR) provides researchers with a non-contact alternative for low volume aspirate and dispense operations in high-density formats including microplates, slides and chips. The PicoRAPTR workstation supports compound profiling, screening, ADMETox, PCR and SNP preparation, plate preparation, and oligonucleotide processing. Its patented, 8-tip piezo dispenser and dual plate carrier stage enable liquid delivery of picoliter to microliter volumes with extremely high precision and accuracy.

"The PicoRAPTR workstation is designed to speed key activities in early stage pharmaceutical research, and ultimately improve a life science laboratory's capability to produce substantial results," said Charles Powell, Aurora Discovery's Vice President Sales and Marketing. This product will be showcased at the Drug Discovery Technology Conference being held in Boston, Massachusetts from August 9-11, 2004.

Aurora Discovery, Inc. is a leading provider of products and services that are used in early stage pharmaceutical research, particularly drug discovery and chemical genomics.
