The PhyNexus MEA 2 robot is a bench top 96 well format platform that brings cost effective sample prep right into the researcher’s lab. The MEA 2 fills the productivity gap between semi-automated instruments and 96 channel capability robots. When used with the unique PhyTip Cover, elution plates retain the integrity of the final elution at volumes as low as 10 µL to guarantee high concentrations of ultra-high purity samples. With the dedicated cooling system option, the MEA can be utilized on any standard lab bench without the need to occupy limited cold room space. The MEA 2 system offers the following:
The MEA 2 processes 12 samples in parallel, moving down the 8 rows of a plate, giving a powerful advantage over 96-at-a-time robots. Purification conditions can be surveyed to produce optimized capture, wash, and elution of any protein. Side-by-side comparisons along the row of 12 can be made with different conditions moving down each of the 8 rows. After conditions have been surveyed and chosen, the MEA 2 can be programmed to process one or two boxes of 96 samples with the optimized conditions.
