Nexar® In-Line Liquid Handling And Assay Processing System

Modular Inline Liquid Handling and Assay Processing System

  • <b>Rewind Module</b><br/>The Array Tape™ is wound back onto a reel for amplification or analysis.
  • <b>Tape Sealer</b><br/>The tape sealer automatically applies a pressure sensitive cover seal to each array.
  • <b>Dispense Jet</b><br/>A non-contact dispense jet adds reagents to the Array Tape™ wells.
  • <b>Plate Stacker</b><br/>Reagent plates are stored for automated access.
  • <b>Plate Stacker</b><br/>Sample plates are stored for automated access.
  • <b>Dispense Pipette</b><br/>The CyBio dispense pipette stamps samples into Array Tape™ in 96- or 384-well configuration.
  • <b>Unwind Module</b><br/>A reel of 200 arrays (76,800 data points) containing miniaturized reaction wells is unwound for sample and reagent processing.
The Nexar® is a modular, liquid handling and assay processing system engineered to support high throughput processing of sub-microliter volumes in 96- and 384-well Array Tape™. Using the indexing holes along the edge of Array Tape™ to accurately position and continuously feed reaction wells, the Nexar dispenses the samples and reagents, seals the tape and winds it onto a dunker reel.

Pipette Dispensing

The Dispense Pipette features a CyBio head with 384 or 96 tips. It aspirates the samples from the sources plate and stamps them in the Array Tape™. The dispense jet aspirates the reagent from the source plate and adds it to the samples on the fly. Aspirate and dispense volumes, along with CVs, are determined by the type and style of pipette and tip tray used.
