Sample management software provider Titian Software and biotechnology tools company Labcyte have announced a smart integration of the Mosaic sample management suite with the Access workstation and POD automation platform – two Labcyte automation systems incorporating their Echo liquid handler.
The two companies say the combination of Mosaic’s software and flexible integration modules, coupled with the Echo system’s low-volume acoustic liquid handling, enable fast, accurate, cost-effective and fully traceable automated workflows.
Edmund Wilson, CEO of Titian, said: 'We have been working in close collaboration with the team at Labcyte to integrate the Mosaic web-based sample ordering facilities to the Access workstation.'
He continued: 'One of the key objectives was to give users the convenience of requesting low volume assay-ready plates, with these being prepared automatically with very high precision.'
Mosaic manages and tracks sample libraries with improved sample preservation and viability. Requestors can select individual substances, plates or substance sets for assay.
