Scorpion Slide Preparation Robot

Automates Chromosome and MicroFISH Slide Preparation

An automated liquid handling robot that prepares 12 or 24 chromosome slides for banding or 12 FISH slides for hybridization. Precisely dispenses microliters of fixed cells for G-banding in a humidity-controlled chamber for optimal chromosome spreading. Dispenses fixed cells and probes for FISH; ready for coverslipping and hybridization. Patient information may be entered by barcode scanning or manually. The robot monitors probe tube volumes  creates detailed patient reports and produces score sheets for slide readers.

Highlights:

  • 24 chromosome slides in < 10 min
  • Controls humidity for optimal spreading
  • 12 MicroFISH slides in < 30 min
  • Prevents sample/probe mix ups
  • Produces detailed patient reports
  • Tracks probe inventory
  • Small footprint (19x19 in; 48x48 cm)
