Speed-Up Daily Liquid Handling Applications
Product News Aug 22, 2011
INTEGRA has produced two new informative videos that demonstrate how its new generation of innovative electronic pipetting tools bridge the gap between traditional handheld pipettes and large robotic systems.
The VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO Voyager deliver to users a higher level of productivity without the cost or training associated with fully automated liquid handling systems.
The VIAFLO 96 is the first handheld electronic pipette which allows simultaneous transfers of 96 samples; there is no easier or faster tool for liquid transfers between 96- and 384-well microplates.
The intuitive user interface allows users to dispense to well plates in only seconds without needing to set up complex programs.
The VIAFLO 96 is as simple to use as any other pipette in lab. With the choice of four interchangeable pipetting heads, it allows users to accurately pipette volumes from 0.5 to 1250 microlitres.
Typical applications include replication of plates, compressing 96-well plates into a 384-well format, dispensing buffers / master mixes, exchanging culture media and simultaneously starting / stopping 96 reactions.
The VIAFLO Voyager is the first electronic pipette featuring an automatic mechanism to alter the tip spacing with the press of a button.
The VIAFLO Voyager allows users to transfer multiple samples in one go instead of going back and forth with single channel pipette repeatedly. This not only saves time, but also minimizes the risk of pipetting errors.
The tip spacing is freely adjustable and thus helps users to accelerate sample transfers between virtually any lab ware formats including 24-, 48-, 96- and 384- well plates as well as tube racks and SDS / agarose gels. Simply customize the tip spacing to optimally fit your applications needs.
