Mantis

Microfluidic Technology At the core of the Mantis is a patent‐pending microfluidic valve cluster that can measure and dispense discrete volumes of liquid. Pressure and vacuum are used to open and close each valve on the silicone valve cluster. This valve cluster has two micro‐diaphragms (100nL and 500nL) that can fill and dispense as fast as 10 times per second. Extremely Low Dead Volumes To minimize dead volume, the ingredient plugs directly into the microfluidic chip. The Mantis can use pipette tips as ingredient reservoirs to reduce waste even further. Dead volumes can be reduced down to 5uL using this feature. This feature is ideal for dispensing even the most precious samples.

"The Mantis is an extremely versatile piece of kit which allows you to set up complex assays with minimal hands on time. We are currently using it to set up assay development experiments such as buffer optimisation as well as mode of action studies. We have found that the Mantis dramatically reduces hands on time in the lab, especially when running stopped assays as these can be programmed in and left to run."

  • Application Area:Small volume dispensing, low / med throughput

  • Mantis

"This dispenser is small footprint, small investment, and large return. Dispensing small volume reagents to an entire plate at any volume in the working range eliminates human error for manual addition. It also lets you dispense directly from a pipette tip, resulting in saving precious reagents! Highly recommend!"

Description

Microfluidic Technology
At the core of the Mantis is a patent‐pending microfluidic valve cluster that can measure and dispense discrete volumes of liquid. Pressure and vacuum are used to open and close each valve on the silicone valve cluster. This valve cluster has two micro‐diaphragms (100nL and 500nL) that can fill and dispense as fast as 10 times per second.

Extremely Low Dead Volumes
To minimize dead volume, the ingredient plugs directly into the microfluidic chip. The Mantis
can use pipette tips as ingredient reservoirs to reduce waste even further. Dead volumes can be reduced down to 5uL using this feature. This feature is ideal for dispensing even the most precious samples.

Small Footprint
The Mantis is the smallest liquid handling robot made by Formulatrix, and is one of the
smallest footprints on the market. With a base that fits on a standard mouse pad, the Mantis can fit in nearly any workspace ‐ but remains completely robot accessible for automation. Size: 220mm (8.66“) x 162mm (6.38“) x 111mm (4.37”)
