The SOLO™ Automated Pipettor and SOLOSoft™ control software offers unsurpassed ease
of operation for serial dilutions and more...

The Hudson SOLO™ is a low cost, flexible and easy-to-use automated pipettor. Available in single, 8 and 12 channel options the SOLO can be programmed to do anything expected of a hand-held pipettor, with better repeatability. Simply set up the pipetting steps in intuitive SOLO Soft control software and go. Equipped with a broad dynamic volume range and the ability to handle reactions in a sterile environment, the SOLO can be loaded and operated manually and is also compatible with robot loading systems from most manufacturers, including the Hudson Plate Crane EX. The SOLO was developed to meet the growing need throughout the research, pharmaceutical and clinical communities for a high resolution compact robotic pipettor. The SOLO provides researchers with walkaway freedom, a small footprint, and easy to use SOLO Soft software which is closely linked to our SoftLinx™ software for data tracking and scheduling, plus improved efficiency and decreased the cost of continuous unattended operation.

The SOLO™ easily fits on the lab bench and in standard fume hoods and biosafety cabinets. It can automate large and small volume experiments, is adaptable to most SBS footprint microplates and can improve the quality and reliability of many assays. The SOLO can work within a plate saving valuable time and reducing errors inherent in complex, repetitive pipetting. Optional deck accessories, stackers and bulk reagent dispensing give the SOLO all the features users demand in an automated pipettor.
