Make your lab work seamless

Why do you need automated liquid handling systems?

A liquid handling robot is an automated device designed to handle liquids accurately and efficiently in laboratory settings. It enables precise dispensing, mixing, and transferring of liquids; in doing so reducing human error and increasing productivity. These automatic pipette robots play a crucial role in various scientific and medical research applications. Liquid handling instruments are no longer considered a luxury, but rather an everyday tool for laboratories around the globe.

Precise liquid handling robotics at your fingertips

In conjunction with the automatic pipette, Myra is equipped with a built-in camera and advanced algorithms, so it possesses the ability to visually comprehend and respond to its tasks. This functionality also grants Myra the power to actively monitor and track objects for potential user errors. Myra offers exactly what you want in your robotic liquid handling systems.

Reclaim your time with other important jobs. The Myra automatic pipette is so precise and speedy, you will never have to worry about inaccuracies.


Easy Setup

Our Myra is the first liquid handling system with an integrated camera to help simplify robot calibration and setup. With an easy user interface that can integrate seamlessly with the
Mic, you are able to set up, run, and analyze all in one location.

Smaller size means more
space in the lab

At less than 10 kg and a footprint of less than 2 ft2, Myra is half the size of other liquid handling systems in its class.


Streamlined solutions are available for standard laboratory processes, encompassing qPCR, normalization, pooling, cherry-picking, and straightforward liquid transfers, even for 384 well plates. To tackle more intricate procedures such as NGS library preparation, cell media washing, or determining minimal inhibitory concentrations for antibiotic susceptibility or resistance, you can harness the power of Python-based scripting functions.

Your Low Maintenance Pipetting Robot

When it comes to testing and analysis, laboratory facilities cannot afford inaccuracy or downtime. With Myra, there is next to no maintenance involved, therefore continuing your highest level of productivity and efficiency. Compared to other liquid handling instruments, Myra is a liquid handling robot designed to perfection.

Pressure based liquid level sensing that can monitor
the aspirate and dispense process for errors.

Keeping an eye on the job

You can calibrate the Myra pipetting robot at the click of a button, eliminating the need to stick your head under the hood and eyeball the position. Thanks to the integrated high-precision camera, achieving calibration on a liquid handling system has never been this easy. Simply click to the middle of the tube image, and let the software do the rest.

The Myra liquid handler software will only require calibration of tubes in use.


The Myra liquid handling system boasts best-in-class accuracy and precision, with deviations of less than 2% for 2μL pipetting volumes. This remarkable precision is achieved through closed-loop axis control, which relies on optical encoders and advanced path planning. As a result, you only need to calibrate positions once, ensuring consistent and high-precision automatic pipette tip positioning, even for small aperture tubes like 384 well plates. This, in turn, reduces the frequency of tip changes.

Additionally, the interchangeable automatic pipette head provides you with greater flexibility to meet all your liquid handling requirements. Each automatic pipette head contains its own calibration data, eliminating the need for recalibration with each exchange. Furthermore, Myra now offers the option to vortex, utilizing a high-speed rotating motion of the Myra head to enhance and expedite the mixing of reagents.


Myra is a dynamic liquid handler designed with both style and function in mind. It weighs less than 10kg and boasts a footprint of less than 2ft2, which is half the size of other instruments in its class.

Furthermore, a closed pipette tip waste container not only minimizes the system’s footprint, it reduces the risk of contamination. The inclusion of UV LED lights and a compact HEPA filter further decreases the likelihood of contamination. This compact design is applied to both components, resulting in a reduced size and weight for the Myra liquid handling system.

If needed, our in-house capabilities can even 3D-print blocks to house exotic tubes or plate types upon request.

In addition to these features, the introduction of a Myra magnetic station has unlocked new possibilities, enabling techniques such as magnetic bead-based NGS library preparation.
To support a wider range of applications, we also offer various cooling blocks that help maintain lower temperatures for extended periods during sample handling and reactions.

Feel free to reach out and inquire about enhancing your Myra robotic liquid handling systems – we are here to help you explore the full potential of your setup.

Automate qPCR on the Mic Cycler

Experience a perfectly seamless workflow when connecting the Myra liquid handling system with the Mic cycler for qPCR. Both instruments can be operated from a single user interface, eliminating the need for exporting or importing sample names. Simply set up, run, and analyze your experiments all in one convenient location. Once done, you can configure experiments for multiple Mic cyclers using a single Myra liquid handling system and analyze the results in a unified file using the Project feature.

We don’t limit our offerings to just qPCR; you can also take advantage of simplified solutions for NGS library preparation, bead clean up, normalization, cherry picking, dilutions and titrations, and pooling.

NGS Library Prep and Bead Clean Up

Myra offers semi-automated library preparation – streamlining the workflow, significantly reducing manual errors, and increasing reproducibility all while minimizing hands-on time.

Capable of handling up to 24 libraries, Myra incorporates a 96 Well Magnetic Station for bead clean-up steps, with off-deck heating to reduce robotic downtime. The workflow is split into manageable runs, with safe stopping points after the various library preparation steps including bead clean up.’

In NGS, repeatability and reproducibility are paramount. The Myra Liquid Handling System can successfully generate high-quality DNA libraries, with performance comparable to manual methods. Sequencing runs show high Q30 scores and consistent barcode balance. Sequencing coverage exhibits uniformity across the prepared libraries, resulting in low library variability and reliable performance. Myra not only reduces manual labor but also ensures high-quality sequencing results.
