Introduction of an Anti Droplet Control Pipette

HAMILTON introduces ADC, for pipetting volatile organic solvents, with pressure sensors in the pipetting channel to monitor each pipetting step.

With the Anti Droplet Control HAMILTON introduces an innovation for pipetting volatile organic solvents, demonstrating the technological advances of the STAR’s Monitored Air Displacement.

This technique is designed to allow process safety as the pressure sensors in the pipetting channel monitor each pipetting step, giving users the opportunity to react to problems like empty samples or clots immediately.

With ADC HAMILTON takes this technology one step further. Pipetting of volatile organic solvents is a challenge because the evaporation of these solvents causes a pressure increase that leads to immediate leakage from the pipette.

The pressure sensors in the STAR’s pipetting channels can detect this pressure increase and ADC can compensate for them in real time.

ADC illustrates monitored air displacement and opens up new application fields in combinatorial chemistry and biology.

ADC is part of HAMILTON’s new Vector Software 4.0, the standard operating software of the STAR liquid handling systems.
