Review date: 17 Jun 2014

Application Area: Compound Dispensing
Echo® 500 Series Liquid Handlers

"The Labcyte Echo allows labs flexibility in designing experiments or setting up applications such as cherry picking reagents. Any reagent can be dispensed to any location at any volume. The instrument is robust; the sales team is informed and not pushy. The service / support team is extremely knowledgeable. A+ all around for Labcyte and their Echo. The one comment I have is that to fully capitalize on the worth of the Echo, you must incorporate a robotic arm / plate hotel to ensure the instrument runs as often as possible."

"Intuitive software. Although an expensive instrument it saves money long-term with no consumable costs. Allows for dispensing of much lower volumes that most other dispensers."

Application Area: Genotyping
Echo® 500 Series Liquid Handlers

"The Echo 500 is great. We are processing genotyping analysis by Real Time PCR and carry over is our nightmare. With the Echo 500 no more headaches. No cross contamination. No carry over. Fast and good for the environment . You can dispense a 384 well plate in 4min and no plastic tips waste."

Application Area: HTS
Echo® 500 Series Liquid Handlers

"The ECHO gets 5 stars for ease of use because it works precisely and reliably with a very intuitive software for everything except the serial dilution capabilities--that is still in need of lots of work. Everything else, plate to plate transfer, reformat, etc, is awesome. Service can be spotty. Some technicians are very good, but others to not seem to know what they are talking about leaving the instrument down for days. But all in all, I love it."

"Good system with many positives e.g. it is easy to use. However it can have issues with sensitivity- compounds in DMSO have to be at room temperature to dispense fully."

Description

 

The Echo® liquid handler revolutionizes liquid handling with acoustic energy. Sound waves eject precisely sized droplets from a source onto a microplate, slide or other surface suspended above the source. This product does not use tips, pin tools or nozzles—completely eliminating contact between the instrument and the liquid. The Echo liquid handler provides powerful benefits:

  • Tipless transfer, resulting in dramatic cost savings
  • Improved information about sample integrity and improved transfer quality through measurement of DMSO hydration level
  • Elimination of the need for calibration through Dynamic Fluid Analysis™ technology, a patented Labcyte process
  • Elimination of cross-contamination, carryover or leachates through non-contact transfer
  • Accurate, precise movement of nanoliter-scale quantities, enabling assay miniaturization and further reducing costs
  • Better results through direct dilution of compounds, an improvement over serial dilution methods
  • Greatly simplified assay development and dilution processes through the flexibility to transfer any volume of liquid from any well to any other well
