Application Note: Evaluation of a Prototype dragonfly Dispenser for Assay Development
19 January 2018

In multiplex assays, where complicated combinations of conditions and reagents are concerned, automated sample handlers will likely benefit researchers hugely. In this application note, the dragonfly dispenser by TTP Labtech, a multi-tip automated liquid handler, was evaluated as a tool for assay development. The dragonfly uses positive displacement technology for accurate liquid dispensing and ensures minimal sample contamination. The methods and results for seven separate experiments are discussed, including cell dispensing and fluorescein uniformity.
