ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) is used for the detection of small quantities of target compound in liquid or viscous solutions such as serum, urine, cellular supernatant, wine and milk. Typical ELISA protocols involve repeated dispensing, washing and incubation steps. Manual procedures are prone to variability and are time consuming. Increasing workloads and decreasing resources necessitates automated ELISA.
Aurora has developed the robust, walk-away VERSA 2000 ELISA workstation to handle these labour-intensive protocols. This customized liquid handling workstation offers advanced robotic automation features in combination with high precision liquid handling abilities.
While the VERSA 2000 ELISA system has been customized for ELISA protocols, the underlying versatility of the workstation allows this automated liquid handling workstation to perform many generic liquid handling tasks including: serial dilution, cherry picking, plate reformatting and plate replication.
