Scorpion Slide Preparation Robot

Automates Chromosome and MicroFISH Slide Preparation

A liquid handling robot that automates preparation of chromosome and MicroFISH slides. For G-banding applications, it dispenses fixed cells in a humidity-controlled environment for optimal and reproducible chromosome spreading. For FISH, it dispenses fixed cells and probe reagents for each patient panel; ready for MicroFISH slide coverslipping and hybridization. 

The Scorpion reduces tedious manual pipetting and eliminates errors by precisely dispensing microliter volumes of cells or probes onto 1-12 slides. Patient information is entered via barcode or manually. The system provides detailed patient reports, monitors probe tube volumes and produces score sheets for slide readers.


  • 12 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)
