Caliper Life Sciences Introduces Sciclone(R) G3 Liquid Handler
Date:1/25/2010

HOPKINTON, Mass., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Caliper Life Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: CALP), a leading provider of tools and services for drug discovery and life sciences research, today announced the introduction of the Sciclone G3 and several new platform innovations at the LabAutomation 2010 conference in Palm Springs, CA.  The Sciclone G3 combines the flexibility of its predecessors with powerful new innovations including: pioneering tube-to-plate reformatting technology; non-contact liquid level and clog detection; and advanced blood tube management, in an easy-to-use, yet flexible software environment.  

"The Sciclone G3 provides a simple and speedy method for tube-to-plate transfer," said Dr. Thomas Mayer, Director of the Conquering Diseases Biorepository Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester.  He continued, "I like the innovative approach to liquid level detection and the ability to transfer 24 samples at once.  There is nothing like this on the market."

"As a leading provider of integration services, we saw a clear need for a robust and rapid tube-to-plate solution," said Kevin Hrusovsky, President and CEO of Caliper Life Sciences. "We have partnered with key thought leaders and customers to create the Sciclone G3 platform, which expands Caliper's long history of innovation for laboratory automation."  

Using an innovative rack system, which simplifies decapping and tube loading, the Sciclone G3 can easily manage and process 96 blood tubes.  The Sciclone G3 uses on-deck sensors and an integrated bar code reader to identify and track samples, providing the most comprehensive and direct approach to handling samples on the market today.  

"The PING liquid level sensor and tube management capabilities of the Sciclone G3 allow for processing samples directly from blood tubes, a critical step in our comprehensive diagnostic strategy," said Kevin Keras, Business Unit Manager, Automation, Consulting, Engineering and Services (ACES).  He continued, "The pipetting approach implemented on the Sciclone G3 eliminates the need for costly electrostatic tips and is much faster than currently available platforms."

The Sciclone G3 is currently on display in the Caliper Life Sciences booth at LabAutomation 2010 (booth #437).  Caliper will also be showcasing a novel tip management and reformatting solution, as well as the latest version of the Maestro® controller software and the LabChip® GX platform.  For additional information on Caliper's liquid handing solutions, please visit http://www.caliperLS.com.
