Integrating Mosaic with Biomek Liquid Handlers from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences

Simplifying Biomek Liquid Handler Integration and Programming using the Mosaic Variable Span Liquid Handling Application

The Mosaic Variable Span Liquid Handling (VSLH) application controls a liquid handler with variable span liquid handling channels such as the range of Biomek systems from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences.

Supported liquid handling operations are:

  • Cherry Picking
  • Dilution
  • Solubilisation
  • Serialisation
  • Adding various reagents (for example, standards and controls, DMSO)

Key benefits of the integration

Operators are guided through fulfilling sample requests and creating automated runs
The VSLH application validates the run and writes the Biomek control scripts based on the requestor’s requirements
The VSLH application performs inventory and workflow updates in real-time
Operators can intervene to handle machine failures, and the inventory is only updated when transfers are completed
Users are guided through setting up a run on the Biomek liquid handler, based on the parameters of the Mosaic order, to specify
- Workflow segment (for example cherry picking or serialise)
- Labware and tip placement and tracking
- Reagent sources
- Standard and control positions and required volumes
The VSLH application maintains details of work in progress during a liquid handling run. If the run is interrupted by power failure or a tip crash, for instance, the operator is asked to confirm any suspect transfers at the time of the interruption and can resume. A new script will be written to complete the work
