Scorpion Slide Preparation Robot

Automates Chromosome and MicroFISH Slide Preparation

An automated liquid handling robot that prepares 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:

  • Drops 24 chromosome slides in < 10 minutes
  • Controls humidity for optimal spreading
  • Prepares 12 FISH panels in < 30 minutes
  • Barcode reader prevents sample/slide and probe mix-ups
  • Produces detailed patient reports
  • At-a-glance probe inventory reports
  • Small footprint (19x19 in; 48x48 cm)
