FLEXIBLE JANUS G3 LIQUID HANDLER WORKSTATIONS

Personalized JANUS® G3 Liquid Handler Workstations

The JANUS® G3 automated workstations include a portfolio of  precision liquid handling solutions that provide adaptability in throughput, plate capacity and dynamic volume range to meet your current and future automation needs.

Both single- or dual-arm workstations are available for sample processing. Optional 4-tip or 8-tip dispensing arms with Varispan technology provide independent variable sample probe spacing for multi-tipped processing of test tubes, microplates, deep well plates, vials, and customized labware. The optional VersaTip sampling tip allows for user-defined capability of sample processing with both washable fixed tips and disposable tips within the same sampling probe without the need for user intervention.

The JANUS® workstation is compatible with a wide range of consumables. From disposable tips to microplates and reagent troughs, PerkinElmer provides high quality consumables to meet your liquid handling needs.

JANUS® G3 liquid handler workstations are available to address varying application workflow requirements

The JANUS G3 Modular Dispense Technology (MDT) workstation offers multi-channel dispensing using proprietary hands-off ‘on the fly’ adaptability in dynamic volume range and microplate densities. The unique MDT NanoHead provides for assay miniaturization for processing volumes as low as 50 nL.

The JANUS® G3 workstations can easily be configured to meet throughput, capacity or dynamic volume range. Every JANUS® G3 workstation can be easily integrated with additional accessories or ancillary instrumentation for complete ‘walk-away’ automation.

Custom JANUS® G3 liquid handler workstations are available with an integrated mobile operations monitor

The PKeye™ mobile operations monitor features multiple integrated on-deck cameras to ensure a true walk-away solution. Uploading video of any errors that occur on-deck to the PKeye™ cloud-based platform, you are free to focus your attention on intellectual contributions to the lab.

Do you require 21CFR Part 11 compatible software for your liquid handler?
