Fast and efficient sample transfer from plate to plate with INTEGRA's electronic pipettes
contributed by INTEGRA Biosciences |
The transfer of samples between same (e.g. from 96 well to 96 well plate) or different plate formats (e.g. from 96 well to 384 well plate) is a common process in life science applications, from cell culture, seeding and staining to drug testing, PCR, protein analysis and nucleic acid purification. However, it is a slow, tedious and highly error prone procedure when performed manually with a single channel pipette. INTEGRA's electronic pipettes allow precise and efficient transfer of multiple samples in parallel, significantly speeding up the reformatting process. For example, the VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette is an ideal tool when the source and target plate formats differ, and can be used either manually or automated on the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot. For even higher throughput reformatting, the VIAFLO 96, VIAFLO 384 and MINI 96 offer a fast solution for whole plate transfers.
