Automation Friendly Reagent Reservoirs The Advantages Are Clear!
The Advantages Are Clear!
Fully Compatible With All Liquid Handling Systems
As automation becomes more and more important, reagent reservoirs varying in dimensions are problematic. The automation friendly reagent reservoirs from INTEGRA are especially designed for use with VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 pipettes or other liquid handling platforms. The microplate format makes them ideal for all automated liquid handling systems using the clearly defined footprint of the Society for Biomolecular Sciences (SBS).
INTEGRA offers two types of automation friendly reagent reservoirs:
- 150 ml and 300 ml Clear Advantage™ reagent reservoirs which are made of crystal clear 100 % virgin polystyrene and fit into a reusable automation friendly base with bold, crisp, clearly visible graduation markings.
- The 300 ml open well, 12 column and 8 row polypropylene reservoirs offer improved chemical campatibility and also permit autoclaving.
How it works
The INTEGRA automation friendly reservoirs utilize reusable bases. Simply keep the base and replace either the 150 ml or 300 ml reservoirs inserts. The INTEGRA reservoir design saves you both precious lab space and money.
INTEGRA also offers polypropylene reagent reservoirs for improved chemical compatibility and are autoclavable.
Clear Advantage™ Automation Friendly Reservoirs
1) Dual Viewing Windows
The windows allow users to safely position tips directly at the bottom of the reservoir without crashing pipette tips or aspirating air. Having two windows allows for visibility whether 96, 384 or a single column of tips are being used.
2) Low Dead Volume
The SureFlo™ Array located on the flat bottom reservoir prevents pipette tip seal off. This allows users to rest the pipette tips directly on the bottom of the reservoir offering an incredibly low dead volume of less than 3 ml!
3) Latching Lid With Gasket
Both reagent reservoir bases feature latches for securing lids. Both lids incorporate a gasket which prevents spillage during transport and evaporation during short term storage.
Polypropylene Reagent Reservoirs
1) Polypropylene Design
The polypropylene design improves the reservoirs chemical compatibility and also allows the reservoirs to be autoclaved.
2) Three Configurations
These options include a 300 ml open well reservoir with 96 pyramid shaped indentations, a 12 column and an 8 row reservoir.
3) Automation Friendly Footprint
All three reservoirs feature an automation friendly footprint for use with VIAFLO 96, VIAFLO 384 and other automated workstations.
"The 150mL and 300mL automation friendly reservoirs are a great improvement from the 100mL reservoirs, individually sealed , that the lab had been using. They are easy to use and can hold more volume. The lid makes it easy to store and transport. Between the basin and the container, there is little room to hold down the basin while removing the lid. The lid creates some sort of a suction, which may seem like it is 'sticky' when removing it. However, this is not a huge issue as for our purposes, the lid is not necessary but it is convenient to have. All in all, great product and customer service!"
