SHENZHEN, China, 17 July 2023 – MGI, a company committed to being a world-leading life science innovator, today officially launched its updated automated sample preparation system MGISP-Smart 8 (Smart 8), an advanced and independent 8-channel pipetting robot, to further support molecular diagnosis and high-throughput sequencing with its high flexibility and easy-to-use.
First available in markets outside of China from April 2022, MGISP-Smart 8 represents a groundbreaking leap in lab automation, boasting unprecedented flexibility and customization with a suite of innovations in its pipette and gripper functions. The latest Smart 8 has added more compatible and adaptable components and consumables with more customization options and modular process/workflow templates that can apply into more modular operation processes and operation schemes. The new Smart 8 will meet the evolving demands of modern laboratories and accelerate scientific progress.
Flexible Pipetting to Meet Various Pipetting Routines
The latest Smart 8 takes laboratory automation to a new level with its eight independent pipetting channels, each featuring a voluminous 1-1000 μL pipetting volume range. Its pipetting distance, volume and height can be independently adjusted, empowering researchers and technicians to effortlessly create flexible pipetting routines, that dramatically improves automated sample transfer, plate setup, and assay processes. Moreover, its pipetting based on air displacement, which ensure stability, accuracy and avoids cross-contamination.
User-Friendly Graphical Interface
Adopting a graphical interface with intelligent guidelines, the latest Smart 8 ensures ease of operation even for novices. With 9 functional instructions and 35 modular commands, the operating threshold is significantly reduced. It also adopts drag-and-drop process editing, which enables users to create all types of experimental workflows flexibly. What's more, the upgraded Smart 8 provides verified templates to help simplify workflow creation, it also empowers scientists to define their own processes templates based on their requirement.
Modular Design Provides Flexibility and Expandability
The Smart 8 features a modular design that allows users to swiftly and conveniently combine, replace or rearrange functional modules, carriers and adapters, flexibly serving different application scenarios. Smart 8 also includes abundant functional modules to realize the transition from a simple pipetting platform to automated workstation adapted to different applications.
This flexible pipetting robot for lab automation has attracted wide attention since its launch in 2022. Don't miss the opportunity to embrace the future of lab automation. The latest Smart 8 is now open for order globally. For more information, please visit the website: https://en.mgi-tech.com/products/instruments_info/19/
