Cell Biology Cell Culture Made Easy with New 24-Channel Pipetting Heads for Viaflo 96/384
Integra has responded to customers’ requests and developed two new 24-channel pipetting heads, extending the capabilities of its popular Viaflo 96/384.
Designed to make cell biology workflows more efficient and reliable, these handheld electronic pipettes allow plate filling, reagent addition or sample transfers to be performed in a single step, enabling quicker and more accurate pipetting, states the firm.
Two versions of the 24-channel heads are available to accommodate the need for different volumes – a 10 to 300 µl option for cell or reagent addition, and a larger 50 to 1,250 µl version for media and buffer transfers – allowing the user to fill a 24-well plate in seconds. Both options use Integra’s proprietary Grip Tip system, which ensures perfect alignment and eliminates the risk of pipette tips leaking or falling off.
As with existing 96- and 384-channel options, all of Integra’s pipetting heads are easily interchangeable, allowing the user to seamlessly switch between 24-, 96-, 384- and 1,536-well plate formats in less than a minute to streamline workflows. The easy-to-use system also minimises the risk of human error, making lab results more accurate and reproducible, adds the company.
