Bravo Automated Liquid Handling Platform
"The Bravo system has a nice footprint which is great for labs with little free space. The pipetting heads are easy to remove and replace when needed. The software interface is not very user friendly and can be difficult to navigate. My biggest disappointment with the unit is that the pipette channels are difficult to QC and tend to fail quite often. Agilent has made it simple to replace channels that fail, which is quite nice, however, the frequency at which I have to replace the channels is too high. Improvements on the pipetting head channel robustness as well as a better software interface would make this product better. I would recommend this product for simple one off transfers, but not for serial dilutions as the precision goes down the more tips are used."
