Liquid Handling Control (LHC) Software
Liquid Handling Control (LHC) Software interfaces with BioTek washers and dispensers
Liquid Handling Control™ (LHC™) Software is a powerful yet flexible interface for use with BioTek's 405™ Touch Washer, 405™ LS Washer, ELx405™ Select Deep Well Washer, EL406™ Washer Dispenser, and MultiFlo™ Dispenser.
Full PC control provided by LHC Software leads to increased convenience when programming important assay-specific protocol requirements in a familiar Windows® environment. Any programming sequence possible onboard the washer or dispenser may be duplicated from the computer with LHC. With intuitive StepWise™ protocol creation, even novice users will find LHC Software easy to use.
To meet the demands of the GxP laboratory, LHC™ Secure offers features to ensure compliance to the U.S. FDA's 21 CFR Part 11 directive. Flexible multi-user permission levels and electronic protocol and system audit trail signing are all available whenever additional security is required.
LHC Software allows an unlimited number of methods to be linked together for the most complex liquid handling routines. From an instrument’s first prime routine, multiple microplate processes over time, an ultrasonic cleaning to dissolve protein or salt crystal build-up to a final system rinse, LHC Software enables unattended operation. Protocols are automatically validated to ensure feasibility and compatibility with the selected instrument.
