The epMotion 5075t automated liquid handling system includes an integrated Eppendorf ThermoMixer® module to mix, heat or cool samples and reagents. The module can be loaded and unloaded with the gripper and pipetting to the mixer is possible before and after mixing steps. The Eppendorf ThermoMixer module is fully software controlled enabling pipetting onto other worktable positions while the mixer is in operation.
Fully integrated ThermoMixer with 2DMix-Control improves yield and application results,
e.g. resuspending bacteria pellets or magnetic beads. Peltier element for heating and cooling
of sample and/or reagents. The following epMotion versions are equipped with ThermoMixer capability, M5073, 5075t, 5075m, 5075vt. A ThermoMixer upgrade product is available
for epMotion 5075l, 5075v, and successor versions 5075LH and 5075VAC.
Sample preparation for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)
involves extensive manual processing that can be subject to human error. Eppendorf epMotion Liquid Handling systems are important tools for labs that want to significantly increase throughput and consistency of results. The automation of labor-intensive steps in NGS sample prep, like pipetting, mixing, temperature control and magnetic separation brings about a standardized and streamlined process, with significantly reduced hands-on time and minimization of human errors.
epMotion automation method for Illumina’s TruSeq Stranded Total RNA & TruSeq Stranded mRNA library preparation kits for Next Generation Sequencing are “Illumina Qualified”.
The gripper tool allows transport of labware on the worktable of epMotion 5073 or 5075 versions. It is loaded by automatic tool exchange and can be programmed easily in the software. The stacking of up to 5 plates is possible.
