Liquid handling is an essential part of many experiments in life science. These experiments are often at the molecular level, and the bioactive assay samples can be fragile and expensive. Because of this, the sample volume dispensed needs to be precisely controlled and as small as possible. With the rapid development of life science, higher accuracy and precision, higher throughput and lower sample volume are required for liquid handling. However, some activities are tedious, time-consuming, and even impossible if performed by hand. The automated liquid handling robot is a robotic system that improves laboratory processes by automating the pipetting component of a range of laboratory methods. Automated liquid handling systems have advantages over manual liquid handling since robot can work without fatigue, increase the throughput, perform consistently, and ensure accuracy and precision.
Types of liquid handling equipment include pipets and micropipets; microplate or microtiter plate dispensers, stackers, handlers, and washers; and a variety of automated robotic systems. Common multichannel pipetting configurations incorporate 4, 12, 96, 384, or 1536 channels. Volumes range from the common microliter volumes to nanoliters and picoliters levels, with femtoliter dispensing being used more often in microarrays. Automated liquid handling equipment can come in many different shapes and sizes and are used in different fields. These machines use a motorized pipette or syringe, attached to a robotic arm, to dispense a specified volume of liquid or sample to a specified container. Some models are equipped with additional laboratory equipment and can perform additional operations to meet specific requirements. These modifications ensure that the liquid handling process is as thorough, efficient, and precise as possible. Automated liquid handlers can be applied to automate many techniques such as ELISA, time-resolved fluorescence, nucleic acid preparation, PCR, next-generation sequencing for genomic research, and cell seeding. Automated liquid handling robots can be used in a variety of fields including drug discovery, materials discovery, molecular biology, clinical research, and drug discovery and development. The benefits of these robots are increased reproducibility, decreased cost, and increased overall efficiency. Due to the use of high-end robotic technology in automated liquid handling, the risk of human error is greatly reduced, providing very consistent and accurate results. In addition, automating liquid handling allows laboratory technicians to spend time on other tasks, such as sample analysis, making the process more efficient and economical.
