Good robot, will be very helpful in multi-samples experiments.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Microbiome and biomarkers at IBD

"This is very good machine for the money; easy to use (I wish your manual would be a little bit clear, like 1, 2, 3..steps; especially to start for the beginners). We use to have very good account manager in order to start with robot, but she was not helpful after the sale (although we resolve some issues by direct call to the company). Since we just started recently we can not say much about reproducibility, but it works pretty well in the test experiments. I wish it will be more predefined programs in order to easy modify ones for our own purposes."

This revolutionized the way I pipette and is perfect for training new team members
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze biomakers in serum samples

"This product has so many features, whatever your pipetting needs are there is either a built in program that can save you time or you can create a program to suit your needs. I also love that you can customize the menu if you want to eliminate things you will never do. The ability to add text prompts and sounds to protocols facilitates training of new members. I have received top notch customer service from my rep Courtney, who explained the product in detail, confirmed understanding of myself and my undergraduate assistants, as well as helped us incorporate the pipettes into our workflow. By taking the time to understand our laboratory methods, Courtney was able to help us write new protocols to save time and reduce error."

  • Application Area:Toxicology

"Very easy to use. Results are much more precise than using a manual pipette. The auto-pipettes themselves are superior to anything we've had here before. The software is incredibly easy to use. We've been able to create multiple programs ourselves for many different uses."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Sample Prep

"Our lab loves the INTEGRA ASSIS PLUS. Equipment always functions well, accompanied software is the most intuitive and user friendly that we have encountered. The accompaning pipets can be used at the bench as well as on the ASSIST PLUS which increased the value of the entire system for our lab. The automated reformating between 96-well plates, 384-well plates, and varied sizes of tubes have made this product well worth the cost. We love the ASSIST PLUS and are looking to buy another one."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Reformatting between plates and tubes.

"The Assist Plus has improved our labs throughput across the board. Older scientists in our lab who are not as technology savvy have praised the Vialab software used with the ASSIST PLUS and the VOYAGER Pipettes for being very user friendly to navigate and create programs. Having the Assist Plus has greatly reduced strain on our technicians when managing high-throughput PCR projects. We not longer have to worry about potentiall for cross contamination or mistakes made during sample prep."

A huge labor saver; highly reproducible culture and assays on our 3D cellular samples.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Maintenance and processing of spheroids and 3D cellular constructs

"The Integra Assist Plus has been highly effective at culturing our spheroids and other 3D cellular samples in 96 well formats. It only took a short duration to optimize liquid handling parameters for our workflows. With similar settings, the Assist+ has also been successfully applied to processing samples for fluorescence microscopy and running drug-based assays on our samples for metabolic characterization. The Assist Plus is overall easy to use. For example, it is simple to turn on the device and set up for a liquid handling run (i.e. the placing of the tips, reservoir, plate and waste bag is easy due to the clearly labelled grooves on the base plate). Our team (of 5 people) has found, after a short training session, the liquid handling programs are easy to run using the VIAFLO pipette interface. It should be noted though that some options such as turning the instrument light on/off or placing it into park mode prior to moving are less obvious to figure out. However, these things were quickly resolved by communicating with our account manager. Overall, we are very happy with the Integra which has been a huge labor save and we are now using routine protocols for 3D cell culture dozens of times a week due to the reproducibility of the work. It should be mentioned that early on we did have a problem with our first pipette which had a faulty channel, however, we were given a temporary pipette while a new replacement was quickly provided. Hence, due to the massive labor saving, the reproducibility of the results, the great after care service and the ease of use, the instrument is 5 stars all round."

  • Application Area:Set up molecular biology assays.

"We've been using the Assist Plus for a couple of months to set up molecular biology assays. We've found it to be simple and reliable, doing an excellent job of completing that are just too complex or repetitive for manual setup but too variable or low volume to be worth deploying on a full-scale automation platform. The Assist Plus can be programmed either directly on the pipette to set up simple assays such as dispensing across a plate or reformatting a plate from 96 to 384 wells, or using the Vialab software for more complex experiments Vialab's strength is its simplicity and ability to help you visualize your experiment by showing the exact popping motions that a program will result in. It's lacking programming-style loops, but it's rare that we want to program such complex protocols. In general, it's possible to automate one-off tasks in a few minutes once you get to know the height offsets for your particular labware. Programs are sent to Integra's line of handheld pipettes, which are then attached to the robotic arm to carry out the experiment. The advantage of using handheld pipettors is that they can do double-duty for handheld plate setup when detached from the Assist if necessary. Tips are competitively priced with other high quality competitor tips. Overall, the Assist Plus has been an excellent addition to our lab, reducing error and variation considerably."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Immunology, scRNAseq library preparation

"We’ve owned our unit for about a week, but we believe that Integra’s Assist Plus device is aptly named. This machine serves to automate the repetitive pipetting that is often found in scientific protocols, thus reducing the time and effort needed to obtain experimental results. The Assist Plus is designed to be compatible with Integra’s Voyager and ViaFlo pipettes; a pipette slots into the robotic arm and serves to direct the transfer of liquid between three positions in the machine’s base. The base unit is sturdy and well-made, and the moving arm also locks into position to facilitate movement and transport of the machine. Most of our utilization to date has been in programming the unit and assessing the reproducibility of those small programs. After a small amount of trouble shooting we found the included ViaLab software to be very user friendly while still providing a good deal of flexibility and depth. Simple protocols such as a basic plate reformat or a wash step can quite literally be setup in minutes. However, if your protocol has very particular needs to buffer solution delivery volume or do a tip touch - or only enter the well/tube to a certain depth these are all available through simple menus. Output of these self-generated protocols has so far been very reproducible. Pipetting matches the quality of the Voyager or Via-Flow pipettes that are utilized by the instrument (which is to say they are among the best digital pipettes out there.) I will say that a bit of tech savvy is necessary to run the software and upload to your pipettes as well as in pairing Bluetooth functionality etc... (hence the 4 star under ease of use.) However, our rep was able to quickly train my group in all of this and as of yet we haven't run into any additional issues that the product care team weren't able to quickly resolve. One of the advantages this unit has over other much more expensive units is in its flexibility, through swapping out of different pipettes, receptacles, etc... you have substantial control over how things proceed. However, in contrast to these much larger units any reasonably complex protocol will require some level of human input to swap plates or tubes in and out as the only moving part is the pipette/arm. However, for the cost this is still quite unique and powerful. While we are thus far satisfied with our purchase of the Assist Plus, there are a few items worth noting that other users might want to consider. First, Integra’s pipette tips for the machine are currently offered only as individually-wrapped boxes, so the expansion of the catalog to include environmentally-friendly ecopacks would enable customers to reduce the use of both resources and storage space. Second, ViaLab is currently only compatible with Windows, so at the moment Mac only groups would need to consider this. All in all its an excellent device and lives up to the quality that integra is generally associated with. We're looking forward to putting the instrument through more complicated hurdles as time goes on! Overall, we believe the Assist Plus will be a boon to our scientific endeavours, and anticipate an improvement in the accuracy and reproducibility of our results. We look forward to further use and evaluation as our unit, affectionately named Ally Kwat, assists us in our experiments."

"PROS: Assist Plus has allowed us to improve assay variability (especially between users). Also a time saver, for instance to collect 5ul samples from 96well- treatment plates and transfer them to 384 well plates for multiple cytokine measurements. I think this instrument has a lot of flexibility for the moderate price. I like the Simulation feature, very useful. A bit time consuming to set up the programs at the beginning, but worth it, as it is saving a lot of time eventually. CONS: The only negative I find : because we have both ASSIST and ASSIST PLUS, I wish it were easier to use a pipet on both instrument (without the need to re-pair it each time)."
