Liquid Handling Robotics
The GC3F houses an Eppendorf EpMotion 5075 TMX liquid handing robot that is available for use by the UO research community. The EpMotion has a 12-position work table capable of accepting a diverse array of multi-well sample plates. We also have adapters for working with standard microtubes and large reservoir troughs.
The EpMotion also has a “thermo-mix” position on the worktable that is capable of vortex mixing as well as heating / cooling samples in a 96-well plate. This allows some enzymatic reactions to be conducted on the robot worktable for automated, high throughput sample processing.
Pipette tips for the robot are available in the core and can be purchased from the GC3F at cost. The hourly fee for robot usage is $25 per hour.
