The VERSA Mini PCR Carousel Setup is a small, automated liquid handling workstation designed to perform virtually every task for the automated PCR set-up reactions as well as all general liquid handling tasks.
Whether processing a small batch or up to a thousand PCR reactions a day, this fast PCR set-up and robotic liquid handling system can automate the PCR set-up procedure with high precision, throughput and accuracy.
The VERSA Mini PCR Setup workstation also performs fast PCR applications such as hot-start PCR.
This automated fast PCR set-up workstation conserves expensive reagents, it eliminates concerns associated with volumetric variations caused by handling errors and removes repetitive manual pipetting protocols.
The VERSA Mini PCR Setup workstation is extremely easy to use and is pre-configured to automatically prepare PCR master mixes, add DNA/RNA templates and load samples into reaction plates/capillary tube carousels.
While the system and software has been designed for liquid handling applications targeted at fast PCR reaction setups, the unit is capable of performing generic liquid handling tasks such as: serial dilution, cherry picking, plate reformatting, plate replication and array printing. The PCR Setup workstation is an open system compatible with a diverse range of labware and kits.
PCR Setup Workstations
- Large volume ranges from nL to mL
- There are options for multi-channel head:

(2) 5-8 channel Reagent Drop cluster for dispensing reagents
- Disposable tip changer and autoclavable tubes reduce cross-contamination issues
- Compatible with most commercially available reagents
- User friendly drag and drop software
- UV fluorescent light and HEPA-filter hood option
- Aqueous/ Organic solvent compatibility
- Small footprint
- Other deck modules available
- Integratable with third party equipment
