Molecular Dynamics introduced a DNA sample prep robot at FASEB last month.
It is called the VISTRA DNA Labstation and has a magnetic bead recovery
component. MD says: any DNA sequencing strategy, dye or radio, solid-phase
or vanilla can be automated and run on this machine. Q. Anyone out there
get a good look at the FASEB meeting? Any beta testers out there? How does
it compare to Beckman Biomek 2000 and ABI Catalyst?
Any info would help, thanks, -Paul
