In this video, Matt Kirtley, Sr. Product Manager and Bill Rust, Sr. Manager of R&D, introduce the new Agilent Encore Multispan liquid handling system. This liquid handling system can address all types of formats found in the lab, including vials, tubes, and plates. The dual span gantries allow for spanning of pipettors in two directions, both across and front to back, allowing pipetting of more samples at any given time. The robot arm facilitates on-deck labware management and off-deck integration with third party equipment, adding significant capabilities of workflow integration. The software's 3D simulator allows users to develop protocols offline and visually see how the protocol will run, enabling protocol optimization and maximizing throughput.
