OT-2 Liquid Handler for BACGene Use

Real-time PCR solutions like BACGene are used worldwide for the detection of foodborne pathogens, delivering reliable results substantially faster than classic detection methods. The OT-2 liquid handler is a new automation solution for the BACGene pathogen real-time PCR kit portfolio.
The system enables the users to run the full process starting from the sample transfer into a ready-to use prepared lysis plate up to the final transfer of the lysate into the PCR plate – thereby enhancing accuracy in your laboratory, increasing efficiency and optimizing costs.

We provide a full starter package including all respective modules and pipettes to easily set up and automatize your BACGene workflow.

The OT-2 system enables the users to run the full process starting from the sample transfer into a ready-to use prepared lysis plate up to the final transfer of the lysate into the PCR plate:

A heating unit allows the temperature lysis to be run fully hands-free. Furthermore, the robot occupies a small space (63 x 57 x 66 cm) on the lab bench and hence can be easily integrated into the workflow.
We provide a full starter package including all respective modules and pipettes to run your BACGene workflow in an automated setup.
