Robotic System - Biomek FX
The Biomek Fx, an automated liquid handling system distributed by Beckman Coulter, significantly reduces the time required to prepare samples. In our facility, we have a 96-channel head which is capable of dispensing to and from 96-well and 384-well microplates. The Biomek Fx has highly versatile pipetting capabilities for volumes ranging from 1 to 250 ml. Currently we conduct 384-well microplate preparation for PCR and sequencing reactions on the Biomek Fx.
The instrument is available to all groups at CMM, but users are expected to share the yearly service fee of approximately 75 000 SEK. To book the instrument, please use the calendar which lies next to it. There is no additional cost per booking.
Users need to either take the introduction course held by Beckman Coulter (approx one day, approx, price: 3000-4000 SEK, max no of participants: 3) or go with a person who has taken the introduction course.
Presently (May 2010) the following groups are able to use the instrument: Lars Klareskog, Tomas Olsson, Martin Schalling, Annika Lindblom, Magnus Nordenskjöld, Anders Hamsten, Jan Hillert.
