By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Brooks Life Sciences, a global leader in automated solutions for temperature-controlled storage and management of compounds and biological samples, announced the launch of the Brooks Life Sciences FluidX AcoustiX Sample Tube, developed in partnership with global biopharmaceutical leader AstraZeneca and Labcyte, Inc. The collaboration provides a total workflow solution, bringing innovation and efficiency to biotechnology companies looking to optimize high-throughput sample management within their drug discovery process. The combined efforts of Brooks Life Sciences, Labcyte, and AstraZeneca have coalesced into an acoustic sample management solution that enables acoustic dispensing directly from a sample storage tube (see also Brooks Life Sciences).
At the center of the acoustic sample management solution is the FluidX AcoustiX Sample Tube, a Labcyte Echo Qualified Consumable that is designed for long-term, temperature-controlled storage of samples, such as compounds for drug discovery and DNA. The tube represents a breakthrough in tube technology, engineered specifically for the Labcyte Echo 655T Liquid Handler, which uses a burst of sound energy to eject 2.5 nanolitre droplets from a tube or microplate to a destination microplate, with high precision and accuracy. Using patent pending technology, the FluidX AcoustiX Sample Tube features a unique 2D4 Quad Code that provides a redundant barcode and a suitable path to allow acoustic energy to pass through to the sample. The tube also benefits from proven FluidX tube technology, ensuring sample security with an internally threaded cap and co-molded gasket seal to prevent the samples from being compromised by hydration or evaporation during storage. The FluidX AcoustiX Sample Tube mitigates risks to sample integrity by allowing researchers to only thaw the samples they require, protecting innocent samples that under traditional processes would unnecessarily go through a freeze-thaw cycle in a microplate. The tube also helps save compound through nanolitre dispensing volumes, improving data quality through non-contact dispense and saving time lost during plate transport. The FluidX AcoustiX Sample Tube is another example of the continuous stream of smarter sample solutions from the FluidX team.
