"Useful for automation of liquid handling and has lots of different protocols and plate/reservoir options available. Assay space easily gets filled with accessories needed. It takes a little while to learn how to set up assays and can be a bit complicated, but once set up it is very easy to use."

"A reliable instrument with great support provided."

Review date: 09 Feb 2007 | JANUS® Automated Workstation
A liquid handling solution that provides real-time and future adaptability in throughput, plate capacity and dynamic volume range.

The JANUS Automated Workstation with proprietary Modular Dispense Technology™ (MDT) delivers all of these benefits -without compromising performance or methodology.

With the JANUS Automated Workstation, you can easily reconfigure it for more throughput, capacity or dynamic volume range -- just add a second integrated labware movement module. To accommodate additional microplate capacity or disposable tip boxes, simply add a PlateStak™ microplate storage device.


JANUS® Automated Workstation Features:

  • Hands-off, "on the fly" adaptability in dynamic volume range and microplate densities for up to 1536 wells.
  • Dispense heads can be automatically switched, within a single protocol, to go from nanoliters to microliters in seconds, with no user intervention.
  • Adjust throughput and capacity easily AND integrate with other accessories or instrumentation for complete "walk-away" automation.
  • Precision pipetting with the widest dynamic volume range available.
