Acoustic Sample Tube - Echo® Qualified Consumable

The Acoustic tube allows researchers to combine the benefits of Azenta Life Sciences 2D coded tubes and the Echo® Liquid Handler, providing the drug discovery process with the robust assay data quality and an increase in compound consumption efficiency when compared with current, conventional methods.


Acoustic dispense direct from the tube. Assay robustness based on a higher sample integrity. Compound saving vs. conventional storage methods. Faster turnaround time from request for compound to compound ready for assay.

Established benefits of 2D Coded Tubes vs. Plates which have to be fully thawed and unsealed to access one sample. Combined technologies of 2D Coded Tubes and Acoustic Transfer.
