Tremendously versatile and easy to use reagent dispenser.


Average Rating 4.7

Application Area:

General reagent handling for molecular biology applications

The dragonfly has been a game changer in our lab. We have a time-sensitive application in which reagents must be dispensed to a 384 well reaction plate in under 2 minutes. The dragonfly is the perfect, rapid fire, contact free liquid handler for the job! Perfect positional and volume accuracy every time. The instrument is easy to operate and maintain, and technical support is responsive and knowledgeable. Highly recommended for high-throughput genomics and molecular biology laboratories.

dragonfly discovery gives scientists a common platform whereby they can easily develop complex assays, validate and screen them in a reliable, robust and cost efficient manner.

This innovative technology enables assays to be developed directly in high density (up to 1,536 well) plate format using a common liquid handling platform that can also perform assay validation and subsequent HTS. The commonality of dispense technology, combined with reliability of dispensing not only simplifies the process of assay development, but also significantly aids the smooth transition into HTS. The versatility of the instrument, and powerful software, provide the ideal platform for hit to lead and lead optimisation, thus enabling the same dispense technology to be used throughout the drug discovery process.

  • Robust user friendly liquid handling with minimal set up time, irrespective of liquid class
  • A novel, low volume liquid handling technology that significantly reduces assay development time and greatly improves assay robustness in screening
  • Reliable low volume, non-contact dispensing from disposable positive displacement tips
  • The same dispense technology can be used at all stages of the drug discovery process, easing assay transition
  • Enables rapid assay development and a significant savings of precious samples and reagents
