Molecular Informatics Equipment
We are grateful to DARPA and Brown University for funding the purchase of the following cutting-edge Molecular Informatics equipment, which bring precision and speed to our experiments.
Andrew Alliance 1000 P Liquid Handling Robot
The Andrew robot is a vision-assisted companion robot capable of manipulating standard single-channel adjustable volume pipettes, completely unattended. Andrew can be programmed to transfer thousands of .2-1000 microliter volumes per day, automating and accelerating our sample preparation process.
Labcyte Echo 550 Liquid Handler
The Labcyte Echo uses acoustics to transfer nL volumes of liquids among wells with speed and accuracy. Up to 750,000 fluid transfers can be accomplished per day, which allows us to accomplish our Molecular Informatics goals of writing and reading MBs of information in less than 24 hours.
Bruker SolariX Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FT-ICR) Mass Spectrometer
Our FT-ICR times how long molecular ions cycle in a magnetic field in order to determine the masses of up to millions of molecules with a resolution of .001 Da all at once.
