Handheld Electronic Pipette Reduces 96 or 384 Well Plate Preparation Time by 80%

Anima Biotech, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, is using Integra’s VIAFLO 96/384 handheld electronic pipette to study protein translation in the drive to tackle undruggable targets in diseases such as fibrosis, respiratory syncytial virus, oncology and Huntington's disease. The VIAFLO 96/384’s ability to simultaneously transfer liquids into every well of a multi-well plate has increased the speed of pipetting, improved throughput and enhanced the accuracy of the process.
Principal PSM Technology Scientist Dr Wissam Mansour explained: “We’ve had the VIAFLO 96/384 for about two and a half years now, and find it fast, robust and easy to operate. It’s very user friendly and a big help for our work. During the early stages of assay development, and later on in the hit validation and the hit-to-lead phases, we work with small numbers of microplates. In the past, this was done manually using an 8 or 12 channel pipette, a tedious and time consuming process that required multiple transfers. The VIAFLO 96/384 allows us to transfer samples and reagents into a 384 well plate in one step, reducing the preparation time per plate by 80% and increasing the throughput considerably. The ability to process an entire plate in one go has also significantly improved the accuracy and reproducibility of pipetting; there is no human hand that can manually pipette into a 384 well plate with the same accuracy as the VIAFLO 96/384.”
