The Maldi Auto Prep System
Our customized 1-channel liquid handler for automated MALDI sample preparation - based on the proven Gilson 215 series of robots.
Automated MALDI sample preparation has become feasible with the MAP II series of robot systems - including the most common sample cleanup steps, e.g. on-target washing or purification with Millipore ZipTips. MAP II is available as one-channel and 8-channel liquid handler.
MAP II and MAP II/8 use disposable tips for a minimum of cross contamination. Samples can be placed in capped vials or in microtiter plates; all standard microtiter plate formats are supported and can be reproduced 1:1 onto the scout MTP MALDI target.
One single sample spreadsheet contains all information necessary for automated sample preparation, measurement and analysis. This spreadsheet links together MAP Control and the FLEX III MALDI-TOF acquisition control module AutoXecute, guiding the path from sample purification to a successful protein identification.
