“We are excited to announce this strategic relationship with Andrew Alliance that will make it much easier for researchers to take greater advantage of the wide range of cutting-edge consumables that we supply to the life science industry,” said Tracy Andrews, Senior Product Manager of Brooks Life Sciences 4titude range. “This means that researchers will be able to more easily, and quickly, set up their liquid handling workflows in OneLab, be they for PCR, NGS or imaging, speeding up both their research and their ability to disseminate the work of other research groups.” “What makes this especially powerful, if that these protocols can then be executed on either Andrew Alliance’s automated liquid handling solutions, increasing productivity and reducing the risk of error.”
The award-winning Andrew+ robot oﬀers fully automated pipetting, as well as more complex manipulations, using a wide range of accessories and Andrew Alliance Bluetooth electronic pipettes. OneLab is a unique browser-based software environment enabling researchers to design, and share, their own protocols, through a highly intuitive graphical interface that can then be executed step-by-step, from any PC or tablet. This browser-based highly intuitive software platform ensures that labs can easily, and quickly, develop a wide range of experimental & workflow protocols.
“In developing OneLab, our focus has been to understand ways in which to better support the life science researcher in their ability to design, execute and share their protocols.” “We are very excited by this game changing partnership enables Brooks Life Sciences to better support their customers by making their labware and consumables easily visible and accessible during experimental design.”
The relationship with Brooks Life Sciences will be initially focused on products developed and supplied by its 4titude® range, which specializes in the design, manufacture and marketing of consumables and bench top instrumentation for the life sciences industry. Since its foundation in 2005, it has continued to develop a range of innovative products for PCR & sequencing, imaging, plate sealing, liquid handling, forensic and NGS sample processing.
