Microplate pipetting system
IBS - INTEGRA Biosciences
ASSIST provides unmatched pipetting ergonomics. Through the attachment of a VIAFLO electronic pipette protocols can be automatically performed. By reducing handheld pipetting to the lowest, lab personnel is relieved from having to carry out repetitive motions that can cause repetitive stress injuries. Manual pipetting requires practice to get reproducible pipetting results. Regular parameters that influences the performance are tip immersion depth and pipetting angle. The automated pipetting capability of the ASSIST ensures that these parameters remain the same which improves reproducibility. The communication between the pipette and the ASSIST takes place via Bluetooth. Setting up is convenient and simple to use. The user interface enables VIAFLO pipettes to be used for both automated pipetting combined with ASSIST along with standard handheld pipetting. The smart pipette adapter allows all VIAFLO multichannel pipettes (8-, 12- and 16-channels) to be attached which covers a volume range of 0.5-1250 µl.
