Broad Institute an Early Adopter of Encore Multispan Liquid-Handling System

The Broad Institute in Cambridge, Mass., has become an early adopter of Agilent’s new Encore Multispan liquid-handling system. The system unites advanced liquid handling and robotic integration for true sample-to-analysis automation.

The Broad Institute will be the first to take advantage of the capabilities of this pioneering instrument to develop automated solutions for a variety of high-throughput genomics workflows. With integrated robotic arm and Iron Python scripting, its a LIMS-integrated DNA/RNA quantification and normalization workstation for processing tens of thousands of samples a year.
