VERSA 10 with Safety Bar


VERSA 10 with HEPA/UV/LED Hood

The VERSA 10 is a compact automated liquid handling machine that provides a versatile 6-position deck all in a footprint under one square metre. Utilizing air displacement pipetting technology, the system can handle volumes as low as 1µL. The 8-channel head with single-channel functionality provides flexibility to prepare anywhere between 1 to 96 samples.

The VERSA 10 compact automated liquid handling instrument can be configured for multiple applications, including:

  • qPCR and PCR Set-up
  • Sequencing Reaction Set-up
  • Nucleic Acid Purification
  • Microarray Spotting
  • Immuno and Biochemical Assays
  • Cell-Based Assays
  • Environmental Sample Preparation
  • General Liquid Handling – dilution, plate reformatting, aliquoting, cherry picking

Frequently Asked Questions

Can VERSA 10 function as a single channel pipette without having to change its head?

The VERSA 10 compact automated liquid handling machine can be utilized as a multichannel system in addition to a single-channel without you having to change the pipette head.

Is cooling or heating of plates/samples available?

The VERSA 10 automated liquid handler can be equipped with a heater-cooler plate, which can define a temperature anywhere between 4 to 90 degrees Celsius. In addition, a Heater-shaker is also available to vortex samples while incubating samples anywhere between RT to 90 degrees Celsius.

Is a HEPA filtered hood available?

You can choose to have either a safety bar, safety hood or HEPA/UV hood for each VERSA series depending on your requirements. Each automated liquid handler is equipped with UV protective glass for a technician to monitor the process of automation.

What volume ranges can the system handle?

The system can handle anywhere from 1μL to 1000μL with the installation of a 1000μL syringe pump. However, a 250μL syringe pump is typically installed for conducting low volume assays such as PCR setup, Nucleic Acid Purification or NGS library normalization, guaranteeing a %CV of less than 5%.

What measures are in place to prevent cross-contamination?

Using disposable tips, each VERSA series can avoid sample cross-contamination. Along with the tip-touch function, our user-friendly software VERSAware allows you to control the air gap to eliminate sample cross-contamination when using our automated liquid handling systems.

Can a VERSA 10 sit inside of a biosafety cabinet?

Yes, with its small footprint, the VERSA 10 compact automated liquid handling machine is small enough to be installed inside a biosafety cabinet if necessary.
