A Customizable Automated Tube Filling System That Fits Your Budget
COVID-19 has led to high demand for diagnostic testing of patients. Viral transport media (VTM) is a critical component of COVID-19 test kits, as it is used for the collection, transport, and storage of clinical specimens. Here, we describe a low-cost automated fluid dispensing system that is easy to use and adaptable.Start Reading
Liquid properties such as viscosity, volatility, surface tension, or temperature can adversely affect the performance of your pipettes by having an impact on the volume of the air cushion inside the pipette. Additionally, air-displacement pipettes run a higher risk cross-contamination with biological samples and carryover of hazardous or radioactive liquids. For these situations, positive-displacement pipettes, such as MICROMAN® E, are a better tool for the job.
Normalization of the concentration of nucleic acid samples is a crucial yet tedious process that requires constant readjustment of the volume of the pipetting device. PIPETMAX® Normalization Assistant automates this process: calculations are carried out by the software, eliminating arithmetic errors, and pipetting volumes are adjusted automatically - learn more in this app note.
Pipetting insights and digital records of your protocols are at your fingertips with TRACKMAN® Connected, a tablet with accessories and apps that makes pipetting on microplates faster, with greater traceability and reproducibility.
Pipette maintenance is an essential part of your analytical method. Here are some of the best practices to keep your pipette working reliably and accurately.
For supervisors, choosing a liquid handling platform is a tough decision. Here are some of the key elements to consider before choosing a system for your lab.
Chemists are looking for “green” purification methods that can reduce the impact of their work on the environment, particularly from the hazardous materials they use. One chromatography solution, centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC), uses familiar materials but significantly smaller volumes of solvent than traditional chromatography methods.
