  • Application Area: Multiple uses

"A very cool piece of equipment. The Assist is easy to use and has a wide range of applications. It's great for multi dispensing plates from smaller volumes - you can even use a strip tube as a liquid source. The Assist also allows for custom programming to do more elaborate tasks aside from the pre-made programs. A cheap and innovative solution for laboratory automation."

Reliable pipetting assistant
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Tissue Culture

"The VIAFLO Assist has greatly improved our tissue culture seeding protocol for 96 and 384 well plates. It generates highly reproducible results and has expedited our workflow. It is easy to program and use, and rarely needs recalibration. As long as the pipettes are well cared for and calibrated regularly, it works consistently and without issue."

Small footprint and a huge time saver.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Liquid Handling

"This is a great complement to the ViaFlo pipettes. Saves us a lot of time and hand strain to just set up a quick program using the touch screen and have all of our serial dilutions and plate fills done for us. We use this for SPR, TSA, and even crystallography"

Yes I will recommend and it helped in avoiding manual errors.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:High throughput assays

"Could complete thousands of compound analysis with accuracy within a short time, unlike other liquid handling systems VIAFLO was not bulky but served its purpose."

Great little robot for the $ in comparison to other suppliers.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:ELISA and washing plates

"This unit is very accurate when integrated with the viaflow pipette via Bluetooth. It not only saves time for the lab user, but increases accuracy. Each plate is filled or mixed the same way each time since this is a robot. It will also integrate with the computer to save stored programs on the pipette. However, this part could use some improvements."

Automate your multichannel pipettes!

Multichannel pipettes are invaluable when working with multiwell plates. However, prolonged and repetitive pipetting sessions bear the risk of strain and fatigue, often resulting in repetitive strain injuries (RSI) and less reproducible results.

VIAFLO ASSIST together with INTEGRA’s VIAFLO II electronic pipettes form the perfect symbiosis to prevent users from RSI and to increase the reproducibility of prolonged pipetting protocols such as serial dilutions, plate filling and reagent addition significantly.

By mounting a VIAFLO II electronic pipette on the VIAFLO ASSIST, the pipette’s protocols can be carried out fully automatically.


VIAFLO ASSIST Features:

  • Touch wheel interface - A full color screen and a proven touch wheel interface offer quick and comprehensible menu navigation. Simply by moving a finger over the touch wheel, menus and settings can be accessed.
  • Smart pipette adapter - Any VIAFLO II multichannel pipette can be mounted to the smart pipette adapter. Pipettes are available as 8-, 12-, and 16-channel models, covering a volume range of 0.5 -1250 µl.
  • Plate compatibility - Use 6-well to 384-well plates in either landscape or portrait orientation.
    Choice of reservoirs - Accommodates reagent reservoirs of three different volumes: 10 ml, 25 ml and 100 ml.
  • Compact size - The instrument’s footprint is small and it is light weight. This makes it easy to relocate it anytime and use it in a laminar flow cabinet.
    Bluetooth communication - The pipette and VIAFLO ASSIST are connected via Bluetooth, supporting convenient wireless connectivity.

Applications:

  • Serial Dilutions
  • Plate Fillings
  • Reagent Additions
