Echo 525 Liquid Handler Features

Key Benefits

  • Highly precise and accurate low volume transfers enabling assay miniaturization

  • Builds assays 50–100 times faster than traditional liquid handlers giving the lab higher capacity from one instrument

  • Suite of Echo Software Applications guide creation of complex protocols for a variety of applications

  • Eliminates pipetting variances that affect assay success

  • Integrates into the Labcyte Access Laboratory Workstation for increased throughput

Build Complex Assays Quickly

The flexibility, speed, accuracy, and precision of the Echo 525 Liquid Handler enable researchers to build assays that are not possible with traditional liquid handlers. The use of acoustic sound energy removes the traditional boundaries of tip and pin tool based liquid handlers. Transfer variable fluid heights and viscosities from one source plate to enable rapid assay creation in one fluid transfer run. Say goodbye to fixed plate designs as the Echo Liquid Handler moves fluids from any well to any well enabling researchers to design the experimental plates they need to make new discoveries.

Efficiently Transfer Build Reagents with Echo Qualified Reservoir

Assay assembly and the transfer of one reagent to many wells is simplified using the Echo Qualified Reservoir. With the capability of transferring up to 2.5 µL from each micro-well, you can build your assay without requiring an instrument change – saving time and money.

Flexible and Reliable Transfer of Genomic Reagents

The Echo 525 Liquid Handler transfers a wide range of fluids during one transfer including distilled water, buffers, nucleic acids, and reagents containing up to 50% glycerol. With its versatile fluid range, transfer volume range, any well to any well transfer capability, and powerful applications software the Echo 525 Liquid Handler supports a wide range of genomic assay workflows:

  • Gene Synthesis

  • PCR and qPCR assay set-up

  • RNA and DNA NGS sequencing workflows

  • Sanger sequencing assay set-up

  • Single-cell sample preparation
