VOYAGER Adjustable Tip Spacing Pipette
Adjustable Tip Spacing Pipette
Save hours of pipetting by using a VOYAGER pipette
In the past, scientists were restricted to use single channel pipettes when transferring samples between labware of different formats. Such single transfers as gel loading, tube to plate transfers or 96-well to 384-well plate reformatting are tedious and an error prone tasks.
VOYAGER multichannel pipettes have been designed to address this problem specifically. It is the first and only automatic adjustable tip spacing pipette on the market. Using a VOYAGER you can transfer multiple samples at once in the blink of an eye. Moreover, by reducing transfer steps, VOYAGER helps you prevent pipetting errors and repetitive strain injuries (RSI).
How it works
VOYAGER pipettes feature a unique motorized tip spacing, enabling parallel transfer of multiple samples between labware of different sizes and formats. The tip spacing can be changed by a simple push of a button.
Electronically Adjustable Tip Spacing
VOYAGER pipettes allow the tip spacing to expand anywhere between 4.5 mm and 33 mm at the push of a button.
The motorized tip spacing offers many advantages over manual tip spacing adjustments:
- Single handed operation leaves the other hand free to handle labware.
- On the fly access to up to 3 user-defined tip spacings.
- These user defined tip spacings are saved. No need to memorize spacings of different labware formats.

GripTip pipette tips which never leak or fall off
GripTips are always firmly attached and perfectly aligned, regardless of how many side well touch offs are performed. You no longer have to hammer your pipette tips on or worry about pipette tips falling off!
2) O-RING Seal
3) RIM SNAPS OVER THE LOBES
The rim (3) of the GripTips will snap over the Multi-Lobes (1), attaching firmly. As a result, GripTips will never accidently fall off.
A shoulder (4) provides a positive stop to prevent over-tightening of the tip. It can only be attached up to that point and no further, ensuring that all tips are at the same height. As a result, the tip is either on or off, but nothing in between.
Intuitive operation and navigation
The Touch Wheel interface offers a quick and ergonomic way to modify pipetting parameters. It enables you to browse through menus, change pipetting volumes and speeds or other settings. Changing a dispense volume has never been so fast and easy!
The full color screen provides full text menus and displays pipetting protocols without abbreviations, making INTEGRA's pipettes particularly easy to understand and intuitive to use.
Various pipetting modes
For the most common liquid handling tasks 10 preset pipetting programs are available, in which only basic parameters need to be defined.
For more elaborate pipetting protocols, up to 40 user defined custom programs can be created.
1) Currently active pipetting mode
2) Next pipetting step is marked
3) Aspiration volume
4) Other parameters such as speed
If connected to the VIALINK PIPETTE MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE, even complex custom programs can be quickly created and stored in a library on the computer.
"We are very glad we made this purchase. Saves so much time and stress, minimizes mistakes as we pipette 384-wells, and our techincal replicates are always very close together."
"Great products, easy to use and long lasting. Efficient and user friendly."
"I definitely and confidently say that it is very reliable including the support I get from the tech support and sales support."

Easily aspirate 8 or 12 samples from a 96 well PCR plate (9 mm spacing) and dispense to 4.5 mm spacing gel lanes.
- Plate reformatting
Transferring samples between plates of different formats
Plate reformatting can be tedious and prone to transfer errors. VOYAGER pipettes allow you to transfer 8 or 12 samples at once between 96 and 384 well plates (9 mm <-> 4.5 mm spacing).
- Transfers from tubes to plates
Transfers from tubes to plates
Sample transfers from tube racks to microplates
Transfers from 1.5 ml microcentrifuge tube racks (~14 mm spacing) to microplates is a routine task for a VOYAGER pipette and saves many transfer steps.
- Cell seeding
Transferring cells and media
The 4 and 6 channel VOYAGER pipettes accommodate even the large well to well spacing of 12 and 24 well plates (26 mm and 19 mm). This allows you to transfer cells at a fraction of the time it would take with a single channel pipette.
