Rich with advanced features and a small footprint design, the Biomek NXP puts virtually every aspect of liquid handling—from basic pipetting with a Span-8 or multichannel head to device integrations including incubators and plate readers for more complete assay automation–the NXP is as powerful and flexible as it is efficient and economical.

NXP detail

The right features – exactly where you need them

The ability to adapt to changing situations is critical for today’s labs. The Biomek NXP liquid handler is designed with the flexibility to accommodate whatever your needs. This powerful liquid handling workstation will handle near-term and future requirements, make modifications as necessary and easily accommodate accessories for extra capability. From standalone to industrial robotics solutions, it’s no wonder Biomek liquid handling systems are the foundation of discovery solutions worldwide.

Eight-probe, 96- or 384-channel pipetting

The NXP workstation offers multiple configurations, including multichannel, Span-8 and Span-8 with an optional gripper. The multichannel model is available with 96- and 384-channel pipetting heads for rapid plate-to-plate applications and assay miniaturization.

360° rotating gripper for maximum flexibility

With the ability to rotate a full 360°, the optional gripper handle provides access from the left, right or from integrated devices on the back of the instrument. It turns to pick up plates in different orientations, enhances on-the-fly barcode reading and saves deck space by moving microtiter plate lids while the Span-8 is pipetting.

Open-frame design for integration of additional devices

The flexible, open architecture of Biomek NXP simplifies integration, as plate readers, washers and storage devices can be located on the left, right or back of the instrument. The open frame design allows future vertical workspace integration for applications where limited lab space is an issue.

Pipetting performance

Biomek offers proven pipetting performance for low-volume reaction setup and assay miniaturization, as well as accurate and repeatable results extending into the submicroliter range. Different techniques can be used for various volume ranges, to enhance liquid handling capabilities. Improved X, Y and Z stability delivers reliable results for small volumes and to ensure optimum pipetting performance, an integrated pump purges air from the lines.

Fly-by barcode reader delivers on-the-fly tracking

With the ability to scan plates being held by the gripper, sample integrity is ensured. Sample IDs can be imported based on the plate barcode and tracked throughout the run. If barcode inconsistencies are detected, Biomek Software allows a wide range of user-controlled corrective actions, including logging and error handling instructions.

Software that works the way you work

No matter what your skill level, you’ll find Biomek Software is packed with easy-to-use features to meet any need. With a single, consolidated user interface driving all Biomek liquid handlers, it’s easy to move between platforms. Since many functions are combined into a single step, setup is fast and effortless. Specialized built-in algorithms speed programming even more by auto-selecting the best settings for the job at hand–all of which helps you make the most of everything the Biomek NXP has to offer.

21 CFR Part 11 compliance

To help achieve regulatory compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 and perform validation assays in a regulated environment Biomek Software offers the ability to set different user accounts and permissions, track revision control and enable electronic signatures. It also requires users to register any change to methods and stores all versions.

Intuitive interface

The flexibility built into the user interface puts the full range of capability in your hands. New users can get set up and running faster than ever, while experienced lab professionals can customize the interface, import and export methods and use icon-driven Step Palettes to create and configure methods with simple drag-and-drop functions. Switching between applications such as MALDI spotting and genomic DNA purification has never been easier.

Point-and-click methods development

The mouse-driven simplicity of unique point-and-click programming avoids long learning curves so common to other approaches. Options such as pipetting techniques, liquid types and deck layouts can be chosen from drop-down lists. Method validation features will check your method and find any logical errors. The Estimated-Time-to-Completion (ETC) feature provides you with an accurate run time, enabling you to speed up methods development and efficiently plan your instrument use. Variables, worklists and logicals can be used to vary runs without reprogramming. All of which makes a wide variety of applications from nucleic acid purification to cell-based assays extraordinarily efficient and streamlined.

Septum piercing and clot detection

To maintain sample integrity, Biomek NXP offers advanced septum piercing abilities. Clot detection circuitry ensures samples are consistently and reliably dispensed to the defined location in a non-contaminated form–ideal for applications such as genomic DNA purification from whole blood.
