VIAFILL Touch Screen Rapid Reagent Dispenser
Touch Screen Rapid Reagent Dispenser
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
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.
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.
"The system is very easy to use because is not necessary to use any computer, the internal touch display allows 100% of functionality including Plate Stacker Control. The system is high precision and accuracy including using the high speed option. VIAFILL has a special kind of cassettes with 16 tip manifolds, this consumable allows the system to dispense on 384 and 1536 well plates at double the speed of other systems. Another important new feature of this system is when you work with 384 or 1536 well plates, is the option of modifying the dispense Z-height in each plate column, this allows performance of all the dispensing steps with the tips in the well avoiding cross contamination between wells due to flow deviations. The stacker system is very simple to use and configure for different plates, from low profile to high deep well plates, simply adjusting the total height of the required plate with a small button in the front site of the plate stacker. The after sales care support from INTEGRA BIOSCIENCES Technical Service is excellent, using web portal or directly contacting INTEGRA engineers using phone or email. Speaking about money, the total price of VIAFILL system including Plate Stacker is significantly lower than the market competence, and the large live and cheep price of the consumable (dispensing cassettes), makes re-calibration unnecessary."

"The VIAFILL is easy to use and dispenses with very low CVs when the GRIPtip and large bore cassettes are being used. We found the small bore (low volume) cassettes did not work for our applications. They worked fine with basic buffers but for media the variation was too high to be effective for our application. Otherwise I would highly recommend the product."
"This is the first bulk dispenser (in its category class of low priced single reagent dispensers) I've seen that can dispense more than just whole number volumes. All other features are nice to have, such as the touch screen and connected stacker, but being able to dispense 2.4uL, 2.5uL for instance makes this instrument an easy sell."
