The LHS closes the gap between electronic pipettes and highly complex, expensive pipetting robots. It is a quiet and compact instrument with a unique front door, allowing it be set up in tight quarters. The instrument has seven working positions and five available liquid ends with single channel volumes up to 1000uL and multichannel volumes up to 300uL. The system has the flexibility to move liquids between reservoirs, tubes, and plates. Adapters and racks bring the consumables to an even height, reducing unnecessary vertical movements to save time during pipetting.
