The apricot DC1 from SPT Labtech is a versatile, 4-in-1 automated liquid handling platform. This compact and accessible automated pipettor opens up affordable opportunities for many laboratories to streamline and automate their everyday manual or semi-manual pipetting processes across a wide variety of applications.

Building on SPT Labtech's apricot range of liquid handling instruments, the apricot DC1 platform offers reliable and versatile automation solutions at exceptional value. Incorporating unique dual-core pipetting technology, the apricot DC1 integrates four separate pipetting tools within a single benchtop unit to allow for high-volume and low-volume, single and multichannel pipetting.

Easily controlled via intuitive software, the apricot DC1 platform empowers laboratory staff, allowing them to benefit quickly from increased throughput, reliable standardisation, and enhanced data quality when copying, mixing, pooling, aliquoting, and preparing the serial dilution of liquids. The out-of-the-box automation gives laboratories full walk-away capabilities without the need for costly automation experts or further investment in additional application-specific functionality.

Dr Anne Hammerstein, Product Manager at SPT Labtech, explained: "A liquid handler with unique dual-core pipetting technology, the apricot DC1 offers the equivalent of four pipetting tools within one accessible instrument at an affordable price. This single and multi-channel pipettor handles the full µL-to-mL volume range across a 9-position deck to provide outstanding versatility across a variety of applications – from simple pipetting tasks all the way through to automated PCR/qPCR setups."
