Read the newest updates to Gilson Connected Products in our release notes.
Connected Products Update
Use our CSV template to run your ELISA on TRACKMAN Connected.
Enter your step names, samples, and volume into a CSV file that can be imported into PipettePilot. Based on the file, a protocol will be automatically generated, reducing set up time.
Improved csv Import
For your complex protocols, use the improved CSV import to create flexible experiments from your desk. With the CSV import, you can create and import any supported operation, including:
• Pipetting steps on various labware
• Action steps with an optional timer
• Pipetting parameters such as aspiration speed, dispense speed, prewet, and mix
Connection screen optimizations
The connection screen has been redesigned to make instrument selection easier.
Flexible liquid handling characteristics
When creating a plan in the app, you can now define the default pipette settings and unique labware in each step. In addition, multiple instances of liquids can now be added all at once.
Execution screen optimizations
A new, redesigned execution screen that clearly presents the important information needed to complete your protocol.
You can now add a photo as a comment in your report at any time during the execution of your protocol.
A variety of minor improvements to improve usability have been made across most of the application screens.
Support for tube racks
Along with the already available 96 and 384-well plate designs, you can now customize your protocol to work with a variety of rack designs.
Support for 30 protocol steps or more
On 96-well plates, you can now create a protocol with up to 30 or more pipetting steps.
Multi-Day, pause-able protocols
Need to collaborate on your plate method? Use the comment box when creating your pipetting steps and the comments will be displayed during execution.
Comments in liquid handling steps
Need advice to fill your plate? Use the comment box when you create the pipetting step, your advice/comments will be displayed when the pipetting will be executed to be sure to have all complete information to execute the protocol properly.
PipettePilot automatically generates an editable checklist based on your protocol which you can check and adjust before beginning your experiment.
Flexible multichannel use
Choose any number of channels you want to use on your multichannel pipette. Whatever your needs may be, PipettePilot can adapt to your specific workflow.
Checks compatibility of your firmware and software
PipettePilot checks the pipette’s firmware to ensure you’re always working with the most up to date version before proceeding.
Better control of aspiration and dispense speed
You can now choose the speed of aspiration and dispense for each step of your protocol. With this new feature, you can adjust the speed within each step based on your needs. The speed can be set between 1 (slow) and 6 (fast) and is tracked in your exportable report to provide traceability for all your actions.
Importing and exporting files from a CSV format
You can now import and export a pipetting plan from Excel by creating a plan in the program, saving it in a .csv format, and then loading your plan directly into PipettePilot. The app automatically converts your .csv file to an executable pipetting plan.
PipettePilot now takes the time to alert you
While performing an experiment, it's easy to become completely absorbed. When you need to change steps or pipette, the app now displays an alert notification of the change, resulting in reduced risk of errors.
Benefit from a better view of the execution screen
The size of the volume and connected pipette are now clearly displayed, making it easier for you to process the information by quickly glancing at the screen.
