The Tecan EVO liquid handling system is utilized to automate the various protocols and procedures of the high-throughput biological assays. It contains a liquid handling arm (LiHa) that can work with both tubes and plates enabling rapid tube to multi-well plate sample transfers and dilutions. The LiHa is equipped with eight tips configured with a wide combination of fixed and disposable options. Bulk reagent additions can be performed with these devices or with integrated reagent dispensers.

This "drop tester" imposes shock impulses of controlled amplitude and duration. Peak values can be as high as 100,000 g, with durations as short as 0.05 ms. A typical test condition for drop testing of electronic assemblies is a half-sine impulse of 1500 g for 0.5 ms. The machine provides continuity monitoring at nanosecond resolution in accordance with testing standards and industry practices. A smaller, Research Ops-built drop tower is also available.

Dimple grinding offers a fast and reliable mechanical method of pre-thinning to near electron transparency (in some cases to electron transparency) greatly reducing ion milling times and uneven thinning.  Dimple grinding also offers a means of producing quality TEM specimens having a large central area only a few microns thick surrounded by a robust outer rim. This eliminates special handling techniques for fragile specimens.
