Echo® 555 Liquid Handler

Echo® 555 liquid handler - the world's fastest acoustic dispensing platform for life science applications. The Echo® 555 liquid handler is the world’s fastest acoustic liquid handling platform for life science applications. Laboratories that demand very high throughput rely upon the Echo 555 liquid handler for round-the-clock trouble-free operation to enable the fastest discovery.The Echo 555 doubles the throughput of the Echo 550 and provides transfers from as many as 660,000 wells per day. Like the Echo 520 and Echo 550 liquid handlers, the Echo 555 uses "touchless" ADE transfer technology. ADE uses sound energy to transfer 2.5 nL droplets from Echo-qualified 384- and 1536-well source plates into 96-, 384-, 1536- and 3456-well destination plates.This unique touchless technology el...Read more

  • Echo® 555 Liquid Handler

"The LabCyte Echo liquid handler is easy to use and offers a spectrum of capabilities. Using the plate reformat, Echo dose-response, and cherry picking modules, our group has been very pleased with creation of assay-ready plates for low to medium throughput primary and follow up screens. "

  • Echo® 555 Liquid Handler

"Echo 555 is a liquid dispenser using acoustic sound waves to dispense compounds as low as 2.5 nanoliters. It is an expensive instrument but it does variety of dispenses for assay development. It is heavily used for primary and secondary screening for high throughput screens. "

  • Echo® 555 Liquid Handler

"The access linked up to the Echo555 is a fantastic product! It saves the researcher a lot of time tediously adding plates to the Echo and provides a walk away function. We've had excellent service with Labcyte in using this and gave several training days to get us up and running. Couldn't be happier! :)"

Description

Echo® 555 liquid handler - the world's fastest acoustic dispensing platform for life science applications.

The Echo® 555 liquid handler is the world’s fastest acoustic liquid handling platform for life science applications. Laboratories that demand very high throughput rely upon the Echo 555 liquid handler for round-the-clock trouble-free operation to enable the fastest discovery.

The Echo 555 doubles the throughput of the Echo 550 and provides transfers from as many as 660,000 wells per day. Like the Echo 520 and Echo 550 liquid handlers, the Echo 555 uses "touchless" ADE transfer technology. ADE uses sound energy to transfer 2.5 nL droplets from Echo-qualified 384- and 1536-well source plates into 96-, 384-, 1536- and 3456-well destination plates.

This unique touchless technology eliminates consumable tip costs, washing, and cross-contamination. Unsurpassed volumetric precision (≤ 8% CV) and accuracy (≤ 10% CV) ensure superior results. Independent studies have shown that Echo liquid handlers eliminate false negatives due to sample loss on tip surfaces in low-concentration transfers. Like the Echo 550 liquid handler, the Echo 555 liquid handler reports both fluid volume and DMSO hydration.


Echo® 555 Liquid Handler Features:

  • Tipless transfer, resulting in dramatic cost savings
  • Accurate, precise movement of nanoliter-scale quantities, enabling assay miniaturization and further reducing costs
  • Elimination of cross-contamination, carryover or leachates
  • Better results through direct dilution of compounds, an improvement over serial dilution methods
  • Improved information about sample integrity and improved transfer quality through measurement of DMSO hydration level

Applications:

  • Compound management
  • Compound screening
  • siRNA screening
  • Biochemical assays
  • Cell-based assays
  • PCR
  • Genotyping
  • Gene expression
