Pipetting robot streamlines workflow in virology research

Researchers in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Otago, New Zealand, are focused on understanding the mechanisms and clinical consequences of drug resistant viruses, as well as performing antiviral drug discovery. The group is using Integra’s Assist Plus pipetting robot and Voyager adjustable tip spacing pipettes to streamline a number of its workflows.

Professor Miguel Quiñones-Mateu, Webster Family Chair in Viral Pathogenesis and Principal Investigator of the group, explained: “We’re mainly interested in the properties of drug resistant viruses – such as transmission and pathogenicity – and applying this research to the evaluation of novel drug strategies aiming to eradicate HIV infections.”
