Chr. Hansen has found a new way to improve the challenges of the genomic workflow. In their lab, they do the identification of strains, as well as a genetic analysis of strains. This can be a very time-consuming process, but with liquid handling automation, they can do it in a more productive fashion and get results much faster. This also helps with increasing accuracy at a more consistent level with the ability to do 48 samples in one day, eliminating the process almost by half. The Biomek 4000 has made sequencing so much easier and helps with preparation of the strains. Also, the Biomek 4000 is compatible with other liquids as well; making it adaptable to changing situations with its easy-to-use software and interchangeable tools.
The Biomek 4000 has made strides in increasing workflow in laboratories all over the world. It’s easy to use and is ideal for smaller laboratories, as well as ones that are newer at using automation as an alternative. The Biomek 4000 is compact and is able to deliver the same consistent results time and time again. Making the possibility of new discoveries endless by the amount of time it cuts out from the process stage.
