Automated Sample Aliquoting with Stopper Removal/Replacement

The Aliquot STARlet assay ready workstation fully automates source-target sampling of blood and other homogeneous and heterogeneous biological samples for downstream applications. The walkaway process safely removes and replaces stoppers from a variety of commercial blood collection-type tubes, mixes the samples, and precisely aliquots daughter samples in under two minutes per tube. Up to 64 source tubes and 256 target tubes may be processed at once.
