Omni Liquid Handling & Homogenizing Workstation (LH 96)
96 – Sample Automated Homogenizer
The Omni LH 96 is a fully automated liquid handling and homogenizer workstation. The LH 96 has a modular design, small footprint and brushless motors for automated homogenizing. The LH 96 automates liquid handling, pipetting, liquid transfer, weighing, diluting, and sample transfer. The unique Omni LH 96 supports automated liquid handling and homogenization of up to ninety six samples in a single batch in sample tubes ranging from 1.5 mL to 50 mL. With the Omni LH 96 workflow software, custom profiles can be created and deployed in minutes through an interactive GUI for hands-free sample prep of one to ninety six samples.

Human Like Generator Probe Movement
The Omni LH 96 was designed to provide automated homogenization using the same generator probe movement as a manual handheld homogenizer operated by a laboratory technician. During processing the motor heads are capable of both vertical and horizontal intra-tube movement to maximize sample contact with the generator probes in order to ensure complete homogenization.
Whisper Drive Technology
The Omni LH 96 features Whisper Drive Technology. Equipped with 4 X 40 watt brushless motors the Omni LH 96 is virtually maintenance free and ultra quite during operation. With whisper drive technology the motor holds processing speed to +/- 1% to ensure reproducibility and accuracy across all samples regardless of fluctuations in sample size and viscosity.
Eliminate Cross Contamination
The Omni LH 96 is capable of utilizing 7 mm plastic Omni Tip generator probes. Clean Omni Tips are selected for each sample processing step then ejected between samples to ensure only clean tips are used for each sample thus eliminating cross contamination. Omni Tips remove the tedious task of disassembly and cleaning of stainless steel generator probes. With the ability to have a one use generator probe, Omni Tips are an ideal solution for applications targeted at nucleic acid extraction or for applications where reproducibility is critical.
