Dispense Viscous and Non-Viscous Ingredients
At the core of the FORMULATOR is a patented microfluidic chip that measures and dispenses discrete volumes of liquid. The chip has 96 outputs, each with its own microfluidic valve cluster. Each valve cluster has two micro-diaphragms (200 nL and 2.5 µL) that fill and dispense up to three times per second. By combining multiple dispenses of each micro-diaphragm, the FORMULATOR can dispense any volume down to 200 nL.

User-Friendly Software
The FORMULATOR software provides a straightforward, user-friendly way to run even the most complicated dispensing protocols through a visual representation of your plate that displays each ingredient’s dispense volume and well location. Design dispenses that vary the volume of each reagent to every well on the plate, dispense the same volume to every well, and add a backfill if necessary. Quickly design experiments using the ROCK MAKER Crystallization Software.  ROCK MAKER can provide a barcode to print and label for your plate with. To run the dispense list, scan the plate label using the integrated barcode scanner before placing the plate on the FORMULATOR's plate holder. The dispense design will automatically load and you're ready to run the dispense.
