INTEGRA has announced a new customer testimonial video that demonstrates how the VIAFLO VOYAGER motorised adjustable spacing pipette can be used to rapidly set up a 384-well qRT-PCR plate for analysis in a ViiA™ 7 Real-Time PCR system (Life Technologies).

In the video demonstration, the VIAFLO VOYAGER  simplifies and significantly accelerates the loading of samples into a 384-well plate. The researcher shows how it is routinely possible to pipette 64 samples in triplicate for two genes of interest - all in under 10 minutes!

The VIAFLO VOYAGER is a handheld multichannel pipette featuring motorised adjustable tip spacing; enabling significant productivity gains in applications such as qRT-PCR where loading of samples into microplates has traditionally been a time-consuming task. The VOYAGER pipette features a unique one-handed tip spacing adjustment, GripTip pipette tips that never fall off, low pipette tip attachment / ejection forces, an intuitive touchwheel user interface and a color display. VOYAGER pipettes uniquely combine ease of use with the flexibility to rapidly and comfortably handle large workloads between various lab ware formats.

The video can be viewed below.
