Synthetic biology

Automation at the heart of gene synthesis

Careful management of bioparts and glycerol stocks is fundamental to gene synthesis. With multiple process steps and components, maintaining order is critical to efficient operation. Our automated storage systems provide secure sample tracking and easy access to bioparts, all stored in optimal conditions.

Making the complex simple

Access to multiple bioparts and glycerol stocks and keeping track of multiple components can become a major challenge as libraries grow. Our automated stores make light work of sample picking, able to place 96 requested samples into specified positions in an SBS rack in as little as 10 minutes. This common format is compatible with other automation such as capper/decappers and liquid handling systems. This maximizes process efficiency and simplifies the challenging task of tracking multiple parallel synthesis reactions.

Fully automated low volume synthesis workflows

Utilizing novel low volume 2D barcoded sample tubes, required bioparts can be cherry picked from arktic® or comPOUND® storage systems and transferred directly to the mosquito liquid handler. Low volume assembly reactions (uL or even sub uL total volume) can be prepared directly from the storage tube by the mosquito, preparing complex permutations of reaction mixes that are almost impossible to produce manually.
