Mason Technology in partnership with Integra are delighted to bring our customers the ASSIST PLUS, the ultimate in multichannel pipetting robot technology.
Multichannel pipettes increase throughput in today’s laboratories. However, prolonged manual pipetting takes up precious time and can lead to repetitive strain injuries. In addition, ever-decreasing sample sizes have made it increasingly difficult to pipette without errors.
INTEGRA has developed the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot to streamline routine pipetting tasks at an affordable price. Using INTEGRA electronic multichannel pipettes, the system automates pipetting tasks, eliminates physical strain, and ensures superior reproducibility and error free pipetting.
Key Benefits of the ASSIST PLUS
- Serial dilutions: Repeated dilution steps with optimal pipetting heights, controlled mixing speeds and optional tip change. Performing serial dilutions by hand is a tedious and error prone task, but not with the ASSIST PLUS. It never skips rows, and ensures critical parameters – such as pipetting heights and mixing speeds – remain consistent for excellent pipetting results. If required, tips can be exchanged after every transfer to minimize the risk of carryover.
- Assay set-up on the adaptable deck: Setting up assay plates typically requires the addition of multiple samples, buffers and media. The flexible deck layout of the ASSIST PLUS accommodates tubes, reservoirs and plates, enabling multi-step transfers to the assay plate.
- Smart Pipette Adapter: The pipette adapter of ASSIST PLUS allows the use of all VIAFLO and VOYAGER multichannel pipettes. Pipettes range from 4 to 16 channels and cover a volume range of 0.5 to 1250 μl to allow optimal adaptation to many different applications.
- 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
