Personalized Zephyr® G3 Workstation

The Zephyr® G3 workstation is a compact, cost-effective, multi-channel liquid handler. It is an ideal tool for key applications in compound management, HTS, genomics, proteomics and bioanalytical assays. A custom version of the Zephyr G3 workstation can be designed to automate many applications including:

  • DNA and RNA clean-ups
  • PCR setup
  • Protein precipitation
  • Solid phase extraction (SPE)
  • Protein purification
  • Solubility assays
  • Plate prep
  • Kinase assays
  • Cell based assays

The Zephyr G3 workstation offers many of the features found in larger, high-end liquid handlers yet in a benchtop form factor. The Zephyr G3 workstation’s small footprint makes it ideal for workbench operation, while the convenient deck  design  provides  ready  access  to  consumables  and  accessories  from  all  four  sides. It offers the flexibility to adapt to your future needs.

  • Changeable 96 (1-200 μL) or 384 (0.5-25 μL) heads
  • Fixed canula or disposable tip arrays
  • 12 deck locations for accessories and consumables
  • Offset gripper is a standard feature which provides ability to move consumables or hold lids while pipetting
  • Partial tip loading
  • Row-wise and column-wise serial dilutions
  • Barcode reading
  • Seamless integration of Twister® III plate handler
  • Deck options for filtration, heating, cooling, shaking, tip washing, reservoirs
