    "This is a grade-A instrument. It has very high precision pipetting. Not quite as versatile as instruments that have a span-8 pipetting head, or as instruments with bigger decks, but that has yet to be an issue for us. Can pick up any arbitrary rectangle of pipette tips (including a single tip) and thus approximate the versatility of a span-8 head. Can stack plates and pipette from the top of a stack to free up deck space. Planning pipetting operations with less than a full head of tips takes work to determine where physical collisions would happen. Robot is not ideal for hit picking due to speed (clocks around 35 seconds per hit-pick operation when changing tips between operations, largely due to slow and precise pipetting; could maybe get it down to 20 seconds per operation if less careful). Can set just about every parameter possible for pipetting, including acceleration (not just speed) in and out of wells."

    "We use this for aspirating supernatants from pelleted cells and we need the remaining volumes to be precise. Works very well for that; vacuum is pretty consistent across tubes, pellets do not get disrupted and the positioning is highly accurate. We have the valve and ultrasonic upgrades for the sake of maintenance: we have one of the four valves dedicated to water and rinse the tips of any salts or cells if there will be any significant delay between processing plates to prevent clogging. The ultrasonic cleaning cycle is very good at clearing clogs when they do form. After a year of heavy use I've yet to use the rapier to clean the manifold. We use the instrument manually (interface is fine), on a computer via LHC2 software (interface is better) and automatically in a Vworks-integrated system. Note that if you're planning to automate, BioTek will not provide serial strings; you must use their LHC2 software. Have had minor problems with valves and fluid sensors but have not needed servi"
