Touch Screen Rapid Reagent Dispenser

Product story

Easy to use touch screen rapid reagent dispenser

Bulk reagent dispensers require a significant investment or users need to buy multiple expensive modules to build the desired dispenser. Additionally, these dispensers only offer eight channel cassettes which dispense in two passes to fill a 384 well plate. This increases the dispensing time and the risk of cross contamination.

The VIAFILL is an affordable bulk reagent dispenser featuring a touch screen graphical user interface for simplistic programming. Users can easily alternate between 8 and 16 channel dispensing cassettes for rapid filling of 6 to 1536 well plates. The addition of the stacker allows for filling bulk quantities of both non-lidded and lidded plates.

How it Works

How it works

The VIAFILL reagent dispenser features a touch screen graphical user interface for simplistic programming of repeat dispenses, variable volume dispenses and custom programming.

Users can easily alternate between 8 and 16 channel dispensing cassettes for rapid filling of 6 to 1536 well plates. The addition of the stacker allows the utilization of 25 and 50 plate chimneys for filling bulk quantities of both non-lidded and lidded plates.

  • Rapid Reagent Dispensing

    The VIAFILL is the first reagent dispenser which includes a color touch screen user interface and was designed to enable intuitive navigation of the instrument thus reducing the learning curve.

    The user interface allows users to quickly edit predefined programs and to create, store, name and recall up to 99 individual liquid handling programs.

  • Plate Stacker

    The addition of a plate stacker increases throughput and allows for unattended operation. Well plates are conveniently stored in the plate stacker using removable chimneys designed for either 25 or 50 plates.

    The stacker is designed for standard or deep well plates of varying heights and is also compatible with many lidded plates.

    Excellent overall but a few things could be improved

    "We've found the ViaFill to be very good for our main purposes but would be happy to see some improvements. Optical sensing of fluid in the tubing at the dispense pump would allow for stopping the run if the source bottle runs dry. Firmware should allow dispensing into 1, 2, 3 & 4 quadrants when usin..."
