Default Biomek NXp for liquid handling? Recommendations?

We are looking to purchase a liquid handler for the lab and I was wondering if anyone had recommendations or warnings against any specific platform?

We would like to not only perform Truseq Library generation and qPCR set up on the instrument, but also have the ability to alter protocols (or build your own) for custom assays.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Any thoughts on the Biomek NXP?

I want to preface this post by saying that I do work for Aurora Biomed so I do have a bias, however, as the Genomic Application Specialist at Aurora I would love to encourage you to check out the VERSA liquid handling workstations which have pre-programmed protocols for the TruSeq setup and will let you create custom protocols as you've indicated. If you'd like to learn more feel free to send me an email!

Hey Hicore,

We have the biomek FXp and just programmed it to do our liquid handling for generating next gen libraries and the qPCR steps. Did you get an NXp? If so, how is it going? Do you have major discrepancies between samples or are they quite uniformed?
