BioTek Liquid Handling | Dispensers & Pipetting Systems


Overview

MultiFlo™ FX is an automated multi-mode reagent dispenser for 6- to 1536-well microplates offering BioTek’s unique Parallel Dispense™ technology. Up to four independent reagents can be dispensed in parallel without potential carryover. MultiFlo FX becomes a versatile multi-mode dispenser with the addition of either the RAD™ technology for random access dispensing to 6- to 384-well plates or a wash module for 6- to 384-well plate washing. Fast, intuitive programming and operation are via the color touch screen user interface. A MultiFlo FX configured with either RAD technology or the wash module replaces up to five liquid handlers.

Features

* Multi-mode dispensing replaces up to four dispensers and a washer
* RAD™ technology for dispensing to individual wells
* Parallel Dispense™ technology: peristaltic or syringe dispensing with no carryover
* Cost savings through dispense mode options and low prime volumes

Overview

BioTek's MultiFlo™ Microplate Dispenser offers a single peristaltic pump for dispensing into 6- to 1536-well microplates. The MultiFlo dispenses a broad volume range from 500 nL to 3 mL accurately and precisely in a compact design. BioTek's proprietary angled dispensing ensures compatibility with all dispense protocols including reagent addition to loosely adherent cell monolayers. For assays requiring minimum reagent usage, the MultiFlo's prime volume is under 1 mL. A built-in priming trough is designed to allow both recovery of reagents or to send primed reagent directly to waste.

Features

* Wide dispense volume range of 500 nL to 3 mL
* Compatible with 6- to 1536-well microplates
* Compact footprint, ideal for integration into automated systems
* BioStack compatible for walkaway automation
* Choice of 1, 5 or 10 µL cassettes for most efficient dispensing

Overview

MicroFill™ offers an economical, compact, and reliable alternative to existing microplate dispensers. Accurate and precise dispensing are guaranteed without the time-consuming recalibration, cassette replacement, and maintenance commonly associated with other dispensers available today. Autoclavability is standard available for those applications requiring a sterile fluid path. Using BioTek's vast expertise in liquid handling, MicroFill™ incorporates a microprocessor controlled syringe pump for optimal performance. 24-, 96- and 384-well standard microplates and deep well blocks are accommodated with flexible volume ranges from 5 µL to 6,000 µL per well. MicroFill's compact footprint makes it ideally suited to fit inside laminar flow cabinets. The user-controlled dispense flow rates allow low- to high-velocity dispensing for any application. Superior Performance in 24-, 96- and 384-well Plates



MicroFill repeatedly delivers reagents with a range in sample viscosities. Typical performance is 1.5% CV at 80 μL

Features

* Robot compatible carrier accommodates 24-, 96- and 384-well standard and deep well microplates
* Microprocessor-controlled syringe pump guarantees optimal precision and accuracy
* No recalibration required
* Low-maintenance design with BioTek's long history of liquid handling instruments
* User-controlled dispense flow rates for low- to high-velocity dispensing
* Up to 75 programs stored in multiple languages at the touch of a button
* Built-in maintenance routines

MicroFill’s autoclavable syringe pump is changed in seconds for guaranteed sterility and no reagent carryover.

Overview

Precision™ Microplate Sample Processor and Pipetting systems are an affordable, unique solution for automated 96-/384-well microplate liquid handling. With its ability to perform virtually any routine liquid transfer, Precision replaces manual pipetting. The Precision XS model adds even greater functionality with its combination of a single-channel sample processing head, an 8-channel pipetting head and an 8-channel bulk reagent dispenser all in one compact instrument. The Precision liquid handling systems offer the best solution in sample processors for today’s modern lab, providing the power of unattended operation and the simplicity and economy lacking in high-end liquid handlers. Precision is specifically designed to fit into most biological safety cabinets and chemical fume hoods, while the intuitive Precision Power pc software simplifies the programming of applications from hit picking to serial dilutions. BioTek’s BioStack™ Microplate Stacker increases liquid handling throughput and provides walk-away automated processing of up to 50 microplates when integrated with Precision or Precision XS.

Features

A configurable multi-station platform and powerful onboard software allow for customized applications. The unique XY transport design provides effortless 96- to 384-well plate transfers with the same pipette mechanism. BioTek's proprietary pipette technology provides a reliable way to pick up and seal standard tips with controlled force. Precision solves the sealing issues associated with conventional pipettes.
Precision Microplate Sample Handlers and Pipetting Systems offer an affordable alternative to liquid handling requirements, including user configurable multi-station platforms, volume ranges from as low as 1 µL and intuitive Precision Power software.

Precision optimizes safety in today's laboratory, by helping prevent eliminate repetitive motion injuries. Its compact size makes Precision ideally suited for installation into a biological safety cabinet. An internal software safeguard is available at any point in the liquid transfer if a pause or program abort is necessary.
Precision offers a variety of fluid transfer operations including:

* Reagent addition
* Mixing within a well
* Serial dilutions
* Rapid Dispense Mode
* Plate replication
* Sample transfer
* Plate-to-plate (96 to 96, 384 to 384, 96 to 384)
* Within a plate
