Seamless Solutions for Sample Prep to Data Acquisition

Multi-omics research involves integrating data from multiple omics fields, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and, metabolomics to gain a better understanding of complex biological systems.

Among the omics approaches, proteomics plays a central role in monitoring protein expression, interactions and modifications. However, the manual handling of samples can be a bottleneck, time-consuming and a significant source of variability.

That’s where automation comes in. By implementing an automated liquid handler in your lab, you can generate high-quality and reproducible data. This will empower you to unlock the potential of AI and machine learning to revolutionize the study of proteomes in disease and therapeutic responses.

Automated liquid handling systems provide a solution offering:

Seamless workflows for protein purification and bioprocessing, sample preparation for mass spectrometry, protein detection and immune-assays

Accurate and precise transfer of small volumes of liquids

The ability to perform complex experiments with consistency and reliability

Increased productivity and accuracy

The freedom to walk away from an experiment and take care of other tasks

“Our scientific work covers a wide range of applications, including the detection of vitamins, the determination of drugs and drug residues, the investigation of biomarkers, and innovative methods of material research and development. The Biomek i7 gives us the highest possible flexibility for automating the respective workflows and integrating our own, customer-specific automation devices and systems to realize a variety of sub-processes beyond classic liquid transfers. This makes high-throughput processes possible even for applications for which automation was previously hardly possible.”

Unlock the Power of Metabolomics

Transforming Complexity into Clarity

Metabolomics is the science of measuring and analyzing the low-molecular-weight metabolites within biological specimens. Just like genomics and proteomics, metabolomics workflows come with their fair share of challenges.

  • Increasing throughput without compromising repeatability
  • Enabling the extraction of polar metabolites and lipids
  • Maintaining sample integrity through strict processing requirements
  • Ensuring appropriate use of quality control samples

Access App Notes and Case Studies

“Having conducted research in metabolomics for almost 20 years, I’ve experienced firsthand the labor intensive nature of metabolite extractions as well as the importance of repeatable extractions to achieve high data quality. Establishing our extraction protocols on the Biomek i7 has opened a new horizon for high-throughput metabolomics, enabling the preparation of thousands of cell extracts for mass spectrometric analysis within just a few days”
