With our state-of-the-art equipment we are able to increase throughput, efficiency and thus optimally facilitate (amongst others) your assay development and hit-to-lead (H2L) projects.
The current automation infrastructure at Pivot Park Screening Centre includes a state-of-the-art ultra High Throughput Screening (uHTS) lab for large-scale compound screening and a lab with multiple automation islands and liquid handling stations for medium-scale HTS, hit-to-lead biological profiling support, plate preparations, biophysical testing, and high-content screening.
With our liquid handling systems we are able to reduce timescales and deliver results faster.
We, for example, use our automated liquid handling systems during assay development to ensure robust assays are put forward for screening applications. This gives our scientists more time to focus on the performance and the analysis of the data.
Our Hamilton VANTAGE automated robot for advanced liquid handling can create more samples in shorter periods of time without the risks of error or variability and is ready to use for your assay development and hit-to-lead (H2L) projects.
The Hamilton robot can accommodate a wide variety of labware from (sealed) tubes to 1536-well plates. Integration with microplate sealing & de-sealing technology and flexible integration with Labcyte ECHO acoustic transfer technology, via the HighRes Biosolutions dockable carts, means we can also use our Hamilton robot for compound library transfer.
Other facilities at Pivot Park Screening Centre include assay development labs, tissue culture labs, and a molecular biology lab for wet lab work, as well as storage rooms for compound libraries, chemicals, reagents, and consumables.
