"This is one of the best instruments on the market. 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. 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 of the Tempest reagent dispenser:
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.
