  • Application Area: Transfer of samples

"The FX has been a reliable instrument for many years for us. We transfer samples from one plate to another and it does so quickly and accurately. The programming is easy once you get the hang of it. Only negative is that it does take up space in the lab."

  • Application Area:Liquid Handling Workstation

"The Biomek FXp is great for 96 well dispensing and for individual dispensing via probes. In combination with the Biomek AAO software it has been invaluable for combination screening. The AAO software is easy to use and automatically takes the information and prepares a Biomek method. In addition, AAO converts the data into an excel sheet for easy data analysis and transfer."

This is a solid instrument that does not break often, and once set up is easy to use. Not uncommon to large liquid handlers, there are some locations on the work table that are not reachable by all tools.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Plate replication, cherry picking

"This is a solid instrument that does not break often, and once set up is easy to use. Not uncommon to large liquid handlers, there are some locations on the work table that are not reachable by all tools. Support was available to help with advanced method programming. Recommend also using Beckman tips on the instrument, off label tips that may look identical are not always comparable and result in substandard accuracy and precision."

  • Application Area:Microplate-Based Screening

"The robot is quite versatile and, with training, not too difficult to program. However like with most lab automation, it can have the occasional issue and does have some downtime associated with that. The aftercare in Scotland is very good though and most faults are relatively quickly resolved. "

  • Application Area:HTS

"We have many xyz liquid handlers and have found that our Beckman Biomek FXs are among the most robust work horses that we have. We use the instrument to dispense medium volume dispenses using picklists, and have found the instrument to be reliable, where end users can start the program and walk away, knowing the instrument will perform correctly. The only caveat I can mention is that with 2 dispense heads on the instrument not all positions on the bench are accessible to both dispense heads. "

  • Application Area:High Throughput Screening

"The software on this liquid handler is very easy to use and learn. The software is much easier to use than tecan or Hamilton because of its drag and drop interface. I have been using this equipment for years and it is a serious workhorse. It does not break down often even when being used for 7 hours a day for a couple months at a time. Beckman engineers are reliable and very easy to work with and their support is great, even without a service contract! While it is an expensive product this instrument just keeps running. I've been using it for years and it is great. "

  • Application Area:Compound Screening

"This is a very powerful liquid handler. Transfers liquid to and from any Labware as required. It’s a flexible and intuitive software that makes the system easy to use. We make full use of its cherry picking capability and use the log files generated to track and upload plate information to our database. This is an excellent and reliable system. "

"It’s our main workstation for all compound profiling application. However, the service could be better in Europe, it takes too long to get it fixed once problems are observed. But, overall, I would recommend others to buy it."

"The software is easy to use with picture based program design. I have not had to troubleshoot or teach the instrument so I cannot comment on that aspect. PMs are included in our service and unscheduled service calls were completed quickly. Scheduling was flexible to minimize disruption in the lab. The machines consistently work well and quality cannot be outdated."

  • Application Area:Screening, assay development. Hit optimalization

"We have used 4 Biomek FXs since 2005 and they were used very intensively by a group of about 40 biologists. I noticed that it is a very reliable system with great possibilities: simple plate transfers to complex tasks making serial dilutions and preparing a broad range of assay plates. A big drawback is that there was no software updates since we bought he instrument 7 years ago. I have got the feeling that others (Tecan ECO, Janus PE, Hamilton) have very good liquid handlers right now. If I was in a position to buy a new liquid handler right now I probably switch to another brand mainly because of the software."

  • Application Area:screening

"The FX is an easy to use instrument with a lot of functionality. There is a lot of flexibility in terms of building pipetting templates for different liquid classes and plate types. Sometimes the amount of functionality can be a little overwhelming and take away from the ease of use. It stores the protocol so that each time you make changes it keeps the previous version so that you never lose protocols. The pipetting precision is very accurate - we use it to transfer 100nL of DMSO and get CV's below 5%."

"Software is intuitive- Drag & Drop based. It's easy to change generic program basics. To get the most out of this flexible liquid handling platform, you need to have a couple of super-users to create more complicated programs/trouble shoot etc. For a higher throughput machine I would recommend a dual arm 96 & 384 head. To do dissolution and have full assay capacity, I would recommend an 8-span with interchangeable 96/384 well heads."

The Biomek FXP is the latest entry in the Biomek line. With an up-to-date hardware design for greater positional accuracy and increased robustness, it can meet the needs of just about any application. It can be configured with either one or two pipetting pods. With its large deck capacity, the Biomek FXP sets the standard for flexible laboratory solutions to meet your changing needs. It puts every aspect of liquid handling – including pipetting, dilution, dispensing and integration – into a single, automated system that is as powerful and flexible as it is efficient and economical. Combined with the proven Biomek Software and our ongoing applications development, Biomek FXP is bringing new possibilities to life.

The Biomek FXP continuum starts with a single-pod system. Equip the high-capacity deck with Automated Labware Positioners (ALPs) suited to your application to create a dedicated workhorse system. Choose a 96- or 384-multichannel pipetting head, or opt for a pin-tool system for high-density replication tasks. The multichannel pod heads are easily swapped out for maximum flexibility and system reconfiguration as your needs change. A Span-8 configuration featuring independent well access also is available for tube-based operations and where flexible access to wells in a plate is needed. With the Biomek FXP, the Biomek is just the beginning. Its open architecture allows for integrations of readers, plate washers, labware storage devices and robotic transport systems.

 

Features:

  • A dual-multichannel pod instrument makes plate replication tasks fast and efficient
  • Capable of scaling up to a Biomek Assay Workstation
  • Fly-By Barcode Reader delivers on-the-fly plate tracking
  • 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance
  • Point-and-click Methods development
  • Automated PCR and sequencing reaction setup
