How does I.DOT work?

Immediate Drop-on-demand Technology (I.DOT) is a patented approach for optimizing noncontact liquidhandling tasks. The system uses eight individually controlled positive pressure channels to generate droplets from 8 to 50 nanoliters from a small hole at the bottom of each well. Each channel can generate up to 100 droplets per second.

Key Features:

  • Noncontact: The technology enables droplets to be dispensed into the target plate below the source plate. I.DOT eliminates carryover and cross-contamination
  • Flexible: Exchangeable source tray supports temperature control from 4 to 37 degrees Celsius and dispensing into any SBS target plate, including 96-, 384- and 1536-well plates
  • Low dead volume: Well reservoir design ensures dead volume <1 µL to conserve valuable reagents and samples
  • Supports multiple liquid classes: Dispenses multiple liquid classes on-demand including aqueous solutions, PCR buffer, DMSO (up to 100%) and glycerol (up to 50%) – and defines liquid class at the well level.
  • Speed: Dispense 10 nanoliters across a 96-well plate in 10 seconds and across a 384-well plate in 20 seconds.
  • Built-in droplet verification: I.DOT is the only instrument in the world to incorporate bubble detection and the capability to detect when users run out of source liquid

Pure Plates configured to meet your low- and high-throughput needs

I.DOT Pure Plates are comprised of an SBS-compatible polystyrol frame with 96 individual polypropylene wells. Each well has a precise 90-micron hole to ensure maximum reproducibility of droplets.

Intuitive software streamlines your workflow

I.DOT’s software optimizes protocol creation, and users can easily import CSV files to create more complex protocols. The software is automation-friendly and integrates with any third-party scheduler.

  • Seamless, user-friendly software
  • Fast, intuitive and CSV-friendly setup
  • Multiwell and custom formats
  • No programming or looping needed

Built-in droplet verification

I.DOT is the only instrument in the world to incorporate bubble detection and the capability to detect when users run out of source liquid.
