  • Application Area: Pre-PCR and antibody assays

"Integra Bioscience’s Voyager II Adjustable Tip Spacing Pipettes are my favorite equipment to work with in the lab! They are awesome pipettes! They are ergonomic and efficient because their features enable the user to avoid extra movement that they would otherwise perform in order to accomplish a particular task. For instance, the adjustable spacing allows the user to transfer multiple samples (up to 8 with the 8-channel version) from micocentrifuge tubes on a rack directly into a PCR tray. (The rack and PCR tray have different spacing, which would make transfer using a standard multi-channel pipette impossible because its spacing only works for the PCR tray.) Without this feature, the user would either have to pipette the samples one-by-one manually or, if applicable, with a single-channel multi-dispensing pipette at best. Not only does this pipette save my hands from repetitive motion, but it is also a significant time-saver--- it cuts the time it would normally take for me to dilute or dispense samples in half. I use the Integra Voyager pipettes for Pre-PCR methods (in an HLA lab) such as RSSO, SBT, NGS, and KIR, and now have also started using it for antibody assays since I rotated benches. I use it to dilute samples for Pre-amplification set-up since it allows me to dilute up to 8 samples at a time. Additionally, in the case of NGS, I use the "Pipet/Mix" function because dilutions are made on a PCR tray instead of in microcentrifuge tubes (which would then be vortexed afterwards). The volume, mix cycles, mix speed, and aspiration speed can all be customized to preference. I also use the Voyager to dispense my samples; not only can I dispense 8 samples at a time because it’s a multi-channel pipette with adjustable spacing, but I can also multi-dispense the same samples to different wells (a double time saver). For RSSO, I use the "Repeat Dispense" function to dispense my samples from microcentrifuge tubes on a rack to the locations for the A, B, C, and DR loci in a PCR tray, but the "Variable Dispense" function to dispense samples to the DQ and DP loci (for SBT, I can go across all 6 loci after just one aspiration with the "Repeat Dispense" function). The samples ordered for the DQ and DP tests in RSSO are the same, but different volumes are required: I need to dispense 1 uL of sample for DQ and 2 uL for DP. With “Variable Dispense,” the Voyager allows me to aspirate and dispense up to 8 samples from one locus to the next without having to go back into the dilution tubes again because of the different volume needed. The Variable Dispense function also allows the user to specify the number of dispenses desired, as well as the speed and volume for each Dispense. I use the Voyager for basic and simple steps, but if preferred, and for longer assays with repetitive steps, the user can also save time by using “Custom” to program their steps into the pipette, so that they only have to press one button (“Run”) to move from one step to another, and the pipette will adjust the spacing, volume, etc as specified by the routine. I also like the fact that the Voyager utilizes Grip Tips. They have a secure fit that click into place without much force, which increases the precision and accuracy of volumes during pipetting. Moreover, the Voyager pipettes are lightweight even with all the features they provide. This is such an incredible pipette, I don’t think I can go back to performing my work without it!"

  • Application Area:Sample preparations with well plate for high throughput bioanalysis

"The VOYAGER II electronic pipettes have 4, 6, 8, and 12-channel models, and enable users to change the tip spacing electronically with the push of a button, and enable users to accelerate reformatting of plates, e.g. 96 well plates to other formated plates or racks, and to transfers from racked tubes into microplates."

  • Application Area:Nucleic acid extraction

"Once familiar, this pipette has made a major difference in allowing my staff to pipet samples reliably and efficiently in our BSC. The user programmable protocols make execution easy and specific for each part of the extraction process that we perform. The motorized tip spacing feature allows us to work with the logistics on hand instead of seeking other vessels for conformity. We have used our device for more than a year to great effect, very pleased with its build, battery life, and usability."

"These pipettes are amazing and have increase my work flow remarkably. I am able to set up reactions from an 1.5ml tube to 384 well plate with ease minimizing time and consumable cost for secondary 96 well plates. I have used these in many training courses for my collaborators in country and this is the perfect solution for a lab that does not have the means for robots. Highly recommend!"

  • Application Area:Cell culture, immunocytochemistry, qPCR, sequencing library prep

"Extremely easy to use and great accuracy. The ability to set spacing is a great feature of the VOYAGER multichannel pipette, which really allows us to plate/fix cells in various plate formats. My favorite is the snap-on GripTip design that ensures all tips to fit perfectly without using much force. This design also prevents damage to the tips of pipette from long-term jamming, which is the most common cause for volume inaccuracy (especially important for qPCR and sequencing library preparation). At a price slightly higher than multichannel pipettes made by other companies, it is worth it for the accuracy and versatility."

  • Application Area:Venom/protein biochemistry

"This is possibly the best pipette I have ever used, and everyone on our experimental staff agrees. Smooth operation, user-friendly, accessible electronic interfaces and incredible repeatability in operation means this is my first choice for liquid movement in the lab. Utilizing this pipette for 384-well plate construction, it's a real time-saver and very precise. A key thing to mention with this pipette is its level of control - fine adjustments of as low as 0.1ul can be made, as well as speed of dispensation and the addition of mix cycles being just a button press away, so easy alterations can be made without breaking away from task. Additionally the electronic, on the fly tip spacing means you can switch from different plate/well sizes mid-task, which really cuts down on the repetitive strain and repeated switching between different equipment. Along with this the pipette is reliable to a fault - you can actually bash the tips on a bench several times (the rep actually demonstrated th"

  • Application Area:384 well plate production

"After several months of manual plate production using single channel and manual pipettes, we began to look for an adjustable multi-channel solution. After trialling many competitors we gave the Integra Voyager 12 channel adjustable pipette a try and have only been pleased. The adjustable tip width means switching between different plate sizes is simple, dispensing volumes are accurate even if the pipette is jogged or dropped and controls and programming are easy to understand and comprehensive. I have never been so excited about a pipette before! This should be your first choice for all high throughput dispensing needs."
