Automating Multichannel Pipettes

Electronic multichannel pipettes are used around the globe to increase productivity in life science laboratories, as they allow for quick reagent addition, well plate reformatting or sample dilution. However, continuous manual pipetting over a long period remains a tedious task. In consequence, many lab professionals face problems ranging from increased pipetting errors to medical problems such as repetitive strain injuries.

In light of these issues, INTEGRA has developed a family of two compact and easy to use pipetting robots, which are compatible with our Multichannel Electronic Pipettes and therefore free you from repetitive pipetting routines. Basic pipetting protocols can be set up directly on the pipette, whereas tasks that are more elaborate are easily created using the dedicated VIALAB software. Simply mount a multichannel pipette on the ASSIST and turn it into a personal pipetting robot, ensuring superior reproducibility and error free pipetting without any physical strain for the user.
