TTP Labtech will Showcase its Latest Automated Technology Innovations in Europe
News May 21, 2012
TTP Labtech will showcase its latest innovations for the automation market at the European Laboratory Automation (ELA) conference for the second year. With new products across the liquid handling mosquito® range, biobanking and automated solvent monitoring, TTP’s broad portfolio spans a wide spectrum of benchtop automation requirements. Stop by booth F1 to see the products in action and enter the ‘guess the level’ competition.
As innovative developers of tools to enhance drug discovery, eliminate manual work, increase efficiency and provide robust data, TTP Labtech will display:
• mosquito® HV for the accurate handling of low volume serial dilutions and assay plate preparations across the 500 nL to 5 µL range
• arktic -20 oC/-80 oC automated store, which has the capacity to hold up to 95,000 0.5 mL tubes and still fit neatly into a small footprint
• aequus, the automated non-contact sensor, allows analytical chemists to keep track of both solvent use and waste overflow of analytical instruments
TTP Labtech will also be presenting several posters, including ‘Rapid profiling of multiple toxicity indicators using a laser scanning imaging cytometer’ in collaboration with Life Technologies. This details the use of the acumen® ex3 to provide a measure of toxicity in every cell of every microplate well, thus enabling the identification of toxicity issues earlier in the drug discovery pipeline.
Novel Microplate 3D Bioprinting Platform for Engineering Muscle and Tendon TissuesNews
There is a strong need for medication that treats age-related degenerative muscle and tendon diseases. A critical bottleneck in the discovery and development of novel drugs for skeletal muscle is the lack of efficient and robust functional in vitro assays for compound screening. Researchers describe the development of a novel screening platform with automated production of 3D muscle- and tendon–like tissues using 3D bioprinting.READ MORE
