AVITI - Parts

Instrument Layout

AVITI OS independently controls each side of the instrument, which is like having two sequencers in one. The intuitive touchscreen interface is positioned in the middle for convenient proximity to all functional bays. To guide workflows and avoid errors, the instrument also features electronic sensors that identify and validate components by barcode. Door lock sensors ensure safe operation.
