Gilson PIPETMAX® is a flexible, robust, precise and very economical pipetting robot system. It has nine real SBS positions, where standard full skirted plates, reservoirs, deep well plates or racks can be placed directly on the tray. With two pipetting heads, PIPETMAX®can pipette volumes between 1 and 200 μl in one up to eight channel modes. A very important feature is the economic use with low maintenance, and the use of standard Gilson tips, with no need to use special, and expensive robot tips.
Here we will demonstrate, as one example, the PIPETMAX® in the workflow of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). The Illumina® Nextera® XT DNA Library Preparation Kit workflow was automated on PIPETMAX®. For comparison, 12 technical replicate libraries were prepared side by side, using manual liquid handling or automated on PIPETMAX®. The 24 libraries were pooled and sequenced on an Illumina MiSeq® sequencing system.
