Innovative Device Automates Handheld Pipetting

New VIAFLO ASSIST from INTEGRA in combination with VIAFLO II electronic handheld pipette.

INTEGRA has announced the VIAFLO ASSIST - an innovative new device that, in combination with a VIAFLO II electronic handheld pipette, enables the pipette’s protocols to be performed automatically.

This unique new product from INTEGRA reduces the need for traditional handheld pipetting to a minimum, relieving lab personnel from activities that may cause repetitive stress injuries.

Handheld pipetting requires practice to achieve steady reproducible pipetting results. Typical parameters influencing performance are tip immersion depth and pipetting angle.

The automated pipetting capability of VIAFLO ASSIST ensures these parameters are always the same, resulting in increased reproducibility and thus better results.

To use the VIAFLO ASSIST, simply mount a VIAFLO II electronic pipette onto the pipette adapter, choose a protocol and press the run button. VIAFLO ASSIST will then obtain the protocol via Bluetooth from the VIAFLO II electronic pipette and automatically execute it.

The VIAFLO ASSIST smart pipette adapter accommodates all VIAFLO II multichannel pipettes (8-, 12- and 16-channels), enabling precision pipetting throughout the volume range of 0.5 – 1250 µl.

To fulfil wide ranging applications, including serial dilutions, reagent additions and plate filling, the VIAFLO ASSIST / VIAFLO II electronic pipette combination accommodates 6-well to 384-well standard or deep-well plates in landscape or portrait format.
