Eppendorf’s epMotion tool speeds AmpliGrid slides loading times

Eppendorf UK : 27 June, 2007  (New Product)
Eppendorf’s epMotion tool offers fast, accurate and contamination-free pipetting of ultra-low volume PCR reactions on AmpliGrid slides.
The innovative AmpliGrid glass slides from Advalytix contain 48 chemically structured DNA-free reaction sites, providing a 1l Assay platform with many research applications.

The AmpliGrid system enables scientists to use ultra-low volume PCR techniques for genomic analysis of minute quantities of DNA, even from a single cell. Automating the plate loading operation by using epMotion delivers speed and reproducibility of pipetting that would be impossible with manual methods. As well as affordability for any lab, epMotion provides ease of use and the most accurate pipetting of volumes down to 1ul, compared with other automated liquid handling systems.

Holger Eggert, Eppendorf’s product manager for automation, explained the significance of epMotion for AmpliGrid users: “The demand for low volume applications continues to increase in fields such as forensic or DNA identity testing, cancer diagnostics and expression profiling, driven by the need to use high price reagents, low copy number templates and minute sample specimens. epMotion is an extremely valuable tool for use with low volume and high throughput PCR methods based on the AmpliGrid system. Cost efficiency is assured through the enormous reductions in reagent stock solutions, while the epMotion’s accuracy provides highly reproducible results.”

Using epMotion in combination with AmpliGrid slides, the whole PCR set-up of up to 48 independent samples, starting from sample preparation and including downstream processing, can be automated very simply. epMotion is also ideally suited to real-time PCR set-up, fully automated nucleic acid extraction, cherry/hit picking, sample normalisation and immunoassays.
