Microlab STAR Line Liquid Handling Workstations
"This is a powerful instrument, most useful for set assays with the same assay parameters. Our lab's needs are a little more challenging: in addition to a calibration curve, various samples for pharmacokinetic analysis require different levels of serial dilutions. Thus, more complicated programming is needed, since the scenario can be quite different from plate to plate, and the software has a somewhat steep learning curve. Also, as with other robotic systems, you should be prepared for a higher reagent usage due to dead volume limitations, and you should also adjust for the relatively slower action vs. manual operators. Consumables (pipette tips, reservoirs, etc.) can add up."
