Gilson and Synthace Announce Collaboration Aiming to Make Biological Research More Efficient and Reproducible at Analytica 2018
Synthace’s Antha Software Makes Gilson’s PIPETMAX More Flexible and Easier to Use
MIDDLETON, Wis., LONDON and MUNICH (April 10, 2018) – Analytica 2018 attendees will get a sneak peak of Antha software integrated with PIPETMAX®, a collaboration between Gilson and Synthace launching this summer. The software connects Gilson’s automated liquid handling platform, PIPETMAX, to the cloud and will make it easier to design and reproduce experiments.
Antha will help PIPETMAX users create, edit and run their automated liquid handling methods using an intuitive drag-and-drop visual interface. By designing protocols with Antha software, researchers can easily share highly optimized methods and practices with others, cutting out the time-intensive and often frustrating process of deducing protocols from research papers.
The software will offer a variety of pre-built basic liquid handling tasks such as transfers, dilutions, and master mix preparation, as well as more sophisticated sample and method data management. It can import Gilson labware files, create custom tasks for specific cases, and run the PIPETMAX remotely. As Antha is a cloud-based platform, researchers will be able to design these methods from anywhere they have access to a web-connected computer.
For added convenience and traceability, users will be able to import and export sample and plate data. Antha can interpret sample lists that need to be imported for normalization, qPCR prep, reformatting, and other operations. Analytica 2018 attendees can demo the Antha software at Booth 327 (Hall B1).
