Pipetting robot
A Closer Look

A Closer Look

The pipette system handles routine tasks at high speed and with the highest precision – quietly and reliably. The Liquid Handling Station closes the gap between electronic pipettes and highly complex, expensive pipetting robots. It primarily consists of a 3-axis system, five different pipette modules (Liquid Ends) and seven different adapters. The speeds of the axis system are designed to permit rapid, exact pipetting while simultaneously minimizing the risk of contamination due to loss of liquid drops during movement. Adapters bring the plates/racks used to a single height, reducing unnecessary vertical movements. That saves time during pipetting!

Thanks to its compact design and the front door, the Liquid Handling Station needs very little space! An area of just 595 mm x 485 mm and 690 mm in height with the door open allows it to be set up in close quarters in the lab or under the safety hood. The space-saving design of the front door allows it to be swung up easily and it is mechanically braked when closing.

The work table has eight work positions, seven of which use the ANSI/SLAS format and can be freely assigned. The waste box in position 1 can hold up to three hundred 300 μl tips or one hundred fifty 1000 μl tips.

The Liquid Handling Station works with single vessels, PCR 8-strips, reservoirs, 96-well and 384-well plates.

The BRAND Liquid Handling Station is an open system. That means that disposable items (e.g., microplates, deep-well plates, single vessels, etc.) from other manufacturers can also be used.

The only exception is the pipette and filter tips. To obtain optimum results, the system works exclusively with robotic tips from BRAND.

 

 

The basis for the pipette modules are components from the familiar Transferpette® S. Three single-channel Liquid Ends (SC) and two 8-channel Liquid Ends (MC) are available for contact-free liquid delivery. Manual changes are so easy a child can do them, and they take only a few seconds. No tools are needed: Just press the ejection button, pull out the Liquid End, and insert a new one – and you're done! The volume testing of the pipette modules is carried out according to ISO 8655 part 6.

The Liquid Handling Station and BRAND robotic tips and filter tips are designed to be used together. This is the only way to obtain the best possible results.

 

 

Different height adapters, tip adapters, and racks ensure stable support and an even working height for the plates and vessels used.
