CF-Spotter for MALDI-TOF Microbial Identification
Spotting Robot for MALDI-TOF Microbial Identification
The SunCollect Contact Free (CF) spotter is designed for an automated fast and accurate sample preparation for microbial identification by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. The spotter can process up to two MALDI targets simultaneously, requiring only one second per sample spot. For higher throughput, the instrument has an automatic target drying function that provides a fast and efficient sample preparation. The instrument has two separate inputs for reagents. This ensures not only direct sample preparation with MALDI matrix, but also pretreatment with formic acid.
Contact Free Pipetting of MALDI Matrix and FA
The SunCollect CF spotter enables fast, efficient and reproducible sample preparation for your MALDI-TOF microbial identification system and relieves your laboratory staff from tedious and time-consuming pipetting. Due to the non-contact application of the solutions, there is no carryover of the samples and the costs for consumables such as pipette tips are eliminated.
Fast and Simple Sample Prep for MALDI-TOF MS
The operation of the CF spotter is simple and straightforward: Insert one or two MALDI targets into the device and select the method of preparation: "Matrix Only" or "Formic acid + Matrix". With just two more clicks, you determine which samples are to be spotted. Every further preparation step including drying of the spots is then performed automatically by the spotter.
Benefit from our high-purity HCCA (α-cyano-4- hydroxycinnamic acid) MALDI matrix, which we supply with our spotter as consumables. Due to the large volume of the convenient 10 mL glass vials, the matrix solution does not need to be constantly renewed and thanks to the user-friendly prices, the investment in the instrument p ays for itself in a very short time.
