Excellent for assay development and screening
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Enzymatic screening

"The instrument is easy to configure and offers a high degree of versatility for liquid handling tasks. Having the stackers and a time delay option is immensely helpful for biochemical screens and other applications. The software for plate teaching and creating protocols is very simple to work with."

  • Application Area:Small Volume Dispensing

"This is one of the best instruments on the market. This instrument has a small footprint that fits easily into labs. It can dispense twelve different reagents to any location and any volume on a plate, and even use barcode pick lists to direct the location and volume of dispensing. This instrument is a non-contact dispenser and we have seen our data quality improve by incorporating this instrument into our workflow. It is an invaluable piece of equipment, easily one of the best investments for a small volume dispensing lab. Enables DOE experiments as well. The one down side is for u shaped wells modifications need to be made to dispense speed to ensure the volume stays in the wells. We have found the support and assistance from Formulatrix to be excellent, and I would highly recommend this instrument. "

The Formulatrix Tempest is a flexible reagent dispenser that can dispense dilutions, factorial DOEs, and even precious samples.

This high-throughput device's independent channel control over all 96 wells enables it to dispense any volume of any input into any well. CVs below 10%, a typical dead volume of 400µL, and a minimum dispense volume of 200nL with no upper limit make this an ideal instrument for high-throughput screening and precious sample dispensing.

 

Features:

  • Fast : Dispense a 1µL, 1536-well plate in less than fourteen seconds
  • Flexible : 12 ingredient inputs; supports virtually all SBS plate types; robot accessible; optional plate stacking
  • Precise : Dispenses a minimum volume of 200nL
  • Small : About the size of a toaster oven
  • Efficient : Non-recoverable dead volume of less than 40µL; typical dead volume of less than 400µL which can be reduced to approx. 100uL using pipette tip dispensing
  • State-of-the-Art : Independent channel control over all 96 nozzles; uses positive displacement instead of pressurized bottles.
