MGI Tech Co. Ltd. (Shenzhen, China) unveiled its new MGISP-Smart 8 automated sample preparation system at MEDLAB Middle East 2022 held at the Dubai World Trade Center.

The event marked the debut of the MGISP-Smart 8 in international markets outside of China, where it was launched in October 2021. MGISP-Smart 8 will now be available in markets outside of China in April 2022. Additionally, MGI Tech also showcased its DNBSEQ-G400 and DNBSEQ-G50 gene sequencing platforms, MGISTP-3000 automated sample transfer processing system, mobile platform for automated and integrated nucleic acid testing.

MGISP-Smart 8 is an independent 8-channel pipetting robot that achieves flexible and customizable lab automation with several innovations in the pipette and gripper functions, such as independent multi-channel dynamic positioning and dual-level liquid detection. Equipped with high-end core technologies, such as an independent 8-channel pipette, intelligent integrated gripper and triple slide track design, MGISP-Smart 8 meets a variety of different application needs, from sequencing library preparation to nucleic acid detection and sample preparation.

MGISP-Smart 8 automates the pipetting and gripper function, which are two core functions for laboratories. With its independent eight-channel pipette for cherry-picking, the system flexibly and efficiently controls pipetting for a variety of lab scenarios and tasks. The system's pipetting volume ranges from 1μL to 1000μL, and eight independent pipettes support dual-level liquid detection for capacitance and pressure. MGISP-Smart 8 is also capable of undertaking pipette functions for different volumes, different channels and unequal intervals - making it adaptable to microplates, reservoirs and tubes. Meanwhile, the high precision integrated rotatable gripper directly connects to the peripheral integration instrument and detects gripping status in real-time to ensure experiment stability.

Beyond the pipette and gripper functions, MGISP-Smart 8 is extremely user-friendly and flexible with exceptional attention to details. The main workstation's triple stacked sliding deck design is adaptable to different modules, allowing users to flexibly combine modules like building blocks and conveniently replace modules at any time for applications' protocols. With 36 independent sliding tracks on the deck, MGISP-Smart 8 supports up to 30 SBS-standard layouts and works with seven types of consumable carriers. All tracks and deck positions are equipped with a position-sensing function, as well as induction functions to avoid misplacement errors in carrier and consumable advancement. MGISP-Smart 8 also works with different types of functional modules and is compatible with third-party kits with flexible software. As a flexible automated pipetting system, MGISP-Smart 8 covers different application scenarios in genomics, cell biology, proteomics, drug development, microbial screening and more. By fully automating operations, laboratories can improve efficiency; reduce errors in complex, repetitive liquid handling protocols; and free out researchers from tedious sample preparation work so they can devote more time onto more valuable tasks.

"Since our inception, MGI has been committed to developing our automated sample preparation systems business. The MGISP-960 and MGISP-100 have helped simplify tedious sample preparation tasks and been well-received by the international medical and scientific community, while the MGISTP-7000 automated sample transfer processing system and MGISP-NE384 automated nucleic acid extractor have supported pandemic prevention efforts for a number of countries worldwide. With the new MGISP-Smart 8, we have once again made a major breakthrough in lab automation. MGISP-Smart 8 builds on our existing systems with greater flexibility, intelligence and customization – enabling us to provide comprehensive lab automatic workflow for more fields and applications," said Dr. Roy Tan, General Manager of MGI Asia Pacific.
