Redd&Whyte, an expert supplier of liquid handling automation for drug discovery and life science research applications, today announced its Preddator system has been integrated in an assay workcell by AstraZeneca, to meet a generic high throughput nano-litre dispensing application. Using the Preddator system, the assay run time has been significantly reduced, while maintaining the dispensing consistency and flexibility of the original workcell.
Scientists in the Oncology Group at AstraZeneca (Alderley Park, UK) integrated the Preddator system as an additional dispensing module to complement a Labcyte ECHO 555 acoustic reformatter in a high throughput cell-based screening workcell. The system is routinely …
Redd&Whyte will be exhibiting at all of the following ELRIG shows in 2013.
The Preddator will be on the stand for you to see in action.
There is also a prize draw on the stand to win an iPad 3.

The Preddator S4’s software has recently been updated with on-the-fly dispensing functions. The Preddator’s high precision solenoid dispensing valves allow for faster dispensing to any rectangular shaped region. This update allows 500nl to be dispensed to an entire 384-well plate in 9 seconds, and 200nl can be dispensed to a 1,536-well plate in just 26 seconds.
In addition, the valve calibration procedure has also been enhanced to allow calibration profiles for each valve, resulting in improved dispensing performance. A single calibration at a designated “master” volume allows the calibration to be checked frequently, and can easily be updated if necessary, …
Redd&Whyte have developed a rinsing station for their popular Preddator S4 which now has expert rinse and cleaning capabilities.
The new and improved rinse station allows the Preddator’s high precision dispensing valves to be cleaned at a rapid speed using a rinse solution, and an air-blade to dry the valves, before or after dispensing.
This is ideal when dispensing reagents that are prone to precipitating, such as buffers, or any other sample media that could cause clogging. As a result, the dispensing performance is maintained each time a plate is run.
The rinse station consists of a trough with 4 …
