"Great, easy to use, bulk liquid system."
BioTek's MicroFlo Select Dispenser is the latest development in dispensing technology offering superior microplate dispensing flexibility in one compact instrument.
In fact, it’s the first instrument of its kind to offer a wide range of choices in dynamic dispense volumes (1 µL – 10 mL), microplate types, sample tube sizes, and automated dispense height adjustment, along with a full range in cassettes to accommodate dispensing requirements now and into the future.
The MicroFlo Select uses a specialized peristaltic design to deliver volumes from 1μL to 10 mL with a higher degree of flexibility than current technology allows. The proprietary cassettes (1μL, 5μL, 10μL) each incorporate the appropriate tubing, tip properties and accurate dispensing technology to deliver full and reproducible incremental volumes of liquid within its specified volume range, even after numerous autoclave cycles. What’s more, each cassette design is backed by the Confidence-Plus unconditional lifetime warranty.
In addition, both cassettes and cassette tubing may be quickly and easily replaced without the usual stretching associated with current peristaltic pump designs. Compatible vessels include 6- to 1536-well microplates, PCR trays, deep well microplates, microtubes, and many other tube configurations up to four inches in height.
Flexibility is further enhanced through automatic dispense height adjustment, automation capability and uncomplicated software. Users can dispense up to eight distinct reagents at a time, and can also choose to dispense into or skip any microplate row or column. A two-stage priming tray can direct liquid to waste, or to recovery, for precious reagents.
