Pipetting Robot CAS-1200

Refurbished Pipetting Robot CAS

Low cost and very compact pipetting machine for PCR and Real-Time PCR. Used and top refurbished. The CAS-1200 is configured to automatically prepare DNA master mix and load up to 96 samples with high speed and precision. Level sensing is a standard feature that ensures reproducible volume delivery for all reagents. These instruments are completely renewed by our technical department and are in a very good condition.

Real-Time PCR applications

With the advent of real-time PCR it is now even more critical that pipetting steps are tightly controlled. Unfortunately pipetting real-time PCR protocols manually is both laborious and prone to error. Volumetric errors that are tolerated by gel based analyses systems show up as sample-to-sample deviation in real-time systems. The pipetting precision can be determined by the standard deviation of replicate samples that are used to create a standard curve. Sample preparation with the CAS-1200 eliminates these errors so less replicates need to be run and the need to re-run assays is reduced.

From the graphs it is noted that all replicates are identical resulting in an R value for the standard curve of R=0.99960 samples were prepared on the CAS-1200 in under 15 minutes.

Standard PCR Software Module
The standard software has been designed specifically for the preparation of regular and real-time PCR assays. This software can be upgraded and the table configuration changed as new software modules are developed for other applications.
