University of Nevada, Reno Key Developments

Hamilton Company and University Collaborate for Robotic Biochemistry Research

Students and faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno will soon be exploring new robotic innovations and accessing laboratory automation systems in a collaboration with the Hamilton Company. The University's College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources is providing laboratory space in the Howard Medical Sciences building for several automated liquid handling stations, where Hamilton aims to develop new cell-based, protein-based and nucleic acid-based applications for their workstations. Students and faculty will be trained to use the high-throughput, accurate and complex instruments, which use precision robotic arms to automate a wide range of laboratory tasks. Hamilton will train faculty researchers, post-doctoral students, and undergraduate and graduate students in the operation and programming of the robotic workstations. The workstations in the Hamilton Center for Laboratory Automation will perform tasks in minutes that would take technicians hours or even days to complete, without the risk of human error associated with repetitive and tedious motions. The instruments are most commonly used for the isolation, extraction, normalization, amplification, purification, cloning and analysis of nucleic acids (DNA or RNA) for all types of biological materials, including blood, bacteria cultures, cells, tissue and plants. The liquid handling stations will be installed in the biochemistry section of the Howard Medical Sciences Building and has been integrated into the undergraduate curriculum.
