Product News: New MultiFlo™ FX Combines Bulk Dispensing and Washing for Improved, Automated Workflows
09 Oct 2013
BioTek's new MultiFlo™ FX Microplate Dispenser offers up to four independent reagent dispensers and a washer in one compact and modular platform to simplify and automate microplate-based liquid handling processes, thus saving time and reducing reagent costs. MultiFlo FX is an efficient solution for 6- to 1536-well plates and incorporates Parallel Dispense™ technologies, which allows a choice of peristaltic or syringe pump dispensing. This choice of dispensing technologies allows reagent conservation and unattended operation down to 500 nL. Additionally, a wash module adds multi-purpose functionality and uses BioTek's patented Dual-Action™ manifold for independent aspirate/dispense control.
MultiFlo FX has a small footprint for use in a biosafety enclosure or in an automated robotic system. To automate sensitive cell-based assays, MultiFlo FX can also be integrated with the new BioStack4 to handle lidded plates.
The fully configured MultiFlo FX replaces up to five liquid handlers, and the modular architecture means that users only need to purchase the modules required now, and can upgrade at any time as their assay needs evolve. MultiFlo FX is ideal for cell-based assays, bead-based assays, ELISAs, primary and secondary screening, compound storage and much more.
