The Encore multispan system combines multispan pipetting with the reach of a built-in robotic arm and intelligent software control. Its dual pipetting system provides two individual banks of multiple pipettes where each moves independently in multiple axes. Each pipette can address a variety of sample formats, from tubes to vials to microplates. The included software package features a 3D simulator that provides researchers with the ability to set up, visualize, and optimize their protocols remotely and offline prior to running experiments on the system. The built-in robotic arm provides a span of up to 21 inches off-deck with one-touch teaching that enables end-to-end workflow integrations.
