The OT-2 is the most accessible liquid handler on the market, trusted by thousands of labs for automating their most time-consuming life science protocols. The Opentrons Flex is Opentrons’ new, modular automation platform, offering increased throughput with gripper and 96-channel head, and transformed user experience, including automated calibration and touchscreen control.
In this webinar, we’ll talk through the main differences between the OT-2 and the Flex and offer guidance on which platform you should choose to best fit your needs. We’ll also offer some tips and tricks for adapting your workflows from one system to the other.
