Sample Prep/Storage: Reducing Cycle Time on Pipetting Protocols

Feb 14 2006 Read 1891 Times

Available from Velocity 11 the VPrep pipetting station is the fastest precision pipettor on the market.

The VPrep features a choice of interchangeable heads for 384-, 96-, 16- and 8-channel operation. Available either as a stand-alone unit or integrated into a larger robotic platform, the VPrep will significantly reduce cycle time for even the most demanding pipetting protocols. Operational use is further enhanced by Velocity 11's intuitive Serial Dilution Wizard, which makes protocol setup quick and easy.

Compact in design the VPrep features eight pneumatic sliding shelves arranged on either side of the pipetting head permitting access to plates, while conserving deck space. The VPrep's head is fitted with a 2-axis positioning stage that provides access to all quadrants of 96, 384, and 1536-well microplates. The shelves can be custom fitted with vacuum manifolds (to position warped PCR plates), auto-filling reagent shelves or a tip washing station. The VPrep uses thin-walled, low retention disposable tips, which may be washed between uses.
