Equipment

Lab-Automation

Application
example graphicI-Dot One MC: This non-contact nanoliter liquid handling platform allows the very rapid combination of different liquid components such as DNA-components. It can dispend from 2 nl up to 80 µl.
example graphicepMotion 5075TMX: We operate an epMotion 5075TMX pipetting robot. This machine can pipette, thermomix and incubate samples automatically and is especially useful for complex media setup, aliquoting and reformating of samples.
example graphicCyBio Selma: A semi-automated 96-tip pipette useful for the flexible handling of 96- and 384-well MTPs.
example graphicKröte: This liquid handling platform with four needles for pipetting, incubation and an integrated thermocycler is currently on leave to enjoy the company of the TU Darmstadt iGEM-team.
example graphic3D Printer (MakerGear M2): Our 3D printer helps us to develop custom labware for many different applications.

Bioprocessing

Application
example graphicParallel Bioreactors: We are operating 6 Multifors bioreactors, three of them equipped with off-gas analysis and massflow controllers. The system is applied for strain characterisation, optimization and small-scale cultivations.
example graphicPilot Bioreactor: Together with the Prof. Neubauer and Dr. Junne (TU-Berlin) we are operating a 15 Liter Techfors-S bioreactor, coupled to a plug-flow reactor, for scale-up/-down experiments.

Standard Equipment

Everything for standard molecular biology (thermocycler, electrophoresis, electroporation, ...) and microbiology (shaking, cooling, disrupting [up to 2x 96 samples], ...).
