Positive pressure, evaporation and cap mat sealing increases throughput and walkaway time
Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, Washington, D.C., (February 8, 2015) -
Hamilton Company a leading provider in the design and manufacture of liquid handling, process measurement, robotics and storage solutions, introduced the [MPE]2, a first of its kind automated module used for positive pressure, evaporation and cap mat sealing.
The Hamilton [MPE]2
small footprint can easily be integrated onto any of Hamilton’s liquid handling robotic systems; NIMBUS, STAR and our newest platform the VANTAGE Liquid Handling System. The [MPE]2
‘s small size makes it scalable allowing the addition of multiple units on a single liquid handler, thus increasing throughput and walkaway time. Easy installation allows for future installs without the need for deck modifications or service visits.
The Patented [MPE]2
incorporates three functionalities in one. [MPE]2
is a positive pressure SPE with a dual circuit even-flow manifold capable of applying up to 100psi of pressure to the top of a SBS footprint filter plate/column; [MPE]2
is an evaporator which can deliver heated air of up to 32 °C (90 °F) to accelerate evaporation of the liquids contained within the plates/columns and the [MPE]2
is a cap mat sealer that uses air pressure to attach the sealant to the plate.
is compact, easily integrated and versatile and addresses the filtration needs of many labs for applications like: bead-based DNA extractions, protein purification, analytical chemistry, drugs of abuse sample preparation and many more.
Hamilton Company will be exhibiting the [MPE]2
during the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, SLAS (Hamilton Company booth # 501), in Washington, D.C., February 7-11, 2015.
