Scorpion Slide Preparation Robot

Scorpion Slide Preparation Robot
Automated liquid handling robot that prepares 24 CytoDrop Slides for G-Banding or 12 MicroFISH Slides for hybridization. Precisely dispenses metaphase cells for banding under temperature and humidity control for optimal chromosome spreading. Dispenses fixed cells and then probes onto MicroFISH Slides; ready for coverslipping. Barcode Reading Station (BRS) matches sample tubes and FISH panels with slides; preventing mistakes.

  • Drops 24 CytoDrop Slides in < 10 min
  • Controls slide temperature and humidity for optimal spreading 
  • Prepares 12 MicroFISH Slides in < 30 min
  • Barcode reader prevents sample, slide and probe mix-ups
  • At-a-glance probe inventory reports
