Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has introduced the new Thermo Scientific Versette automated liquid handler. Compatible with 19 interchangeable, RFID-tagged pipetting heads, the Versette™ provides pipetting versatility for a broad range of applications that require single- to 384-channel automated pipetting. The Versette is compatible with both disposable and fixed-tip pipetting heads, with a total volume ranging from 0.1 to 1250 µl.

To further optimize performance, the single-, 8-, and 12-channel pipetting heads utilize the Thermo Scientific ClipTips, which securely seal to the pipette head. The clip design requires minimal insertion and ejection force, decreasing wear and tear and increasing the life of the instrument and pipetting heads.

The 96- and 384-channel pipetting heads use the Thermo Scientific D.A.R.T.s tips, which use a surface seal to ensure accurate and precise pipetting across all channels. The company showcased the Versette at Thermo Scientific booth 9 / G51 during Biotechnica 2010, held 5 – 7 October 2010 in Hannover, Germany.

To further the scalability of the platform, Versette offers two stage capacity options. The easy to swap 2- and 6-position stages provide flexibility for both stand-alone and robot-friendly use. With a compact footprint, further facilitated by the dual-level design of the 6-position stage, the Versette can be placed exactly where it is needed. Furthermore, all stage options are equipped with a safety shield to contain experimental material and reduce the occurrence of contamination, removing the need for an enclosure.

Simple and complex pipetting procedures can be programmed via onboard LCD user interface or the Thermo Scientific ControlMate software. This advanced instrument control, combined with experimental precision and versatility, makes the Thermo Scientific Versette automated liquid handling platform ideal whether transitioning from handheld pipetting or establishing an integrated liquid handling system.
