Precision Microplate Pipetting System

<<Prev Next>>

Personal pipetting station for 6- to 384-well plates automates routine tasks often done by hand

Single-channel pipetting and dispensing for sample processing, including primary tubes

Compact footprint fits in standard size lab cabinets

Precision™ Microplate Sample Processor and Pipetting systems are an affordable, unique solution for automated 96-/384-well microplate liquid handling. With its ability to perform virtually any routine liquid transfer, Precision replaces manual pipetting. The Precision XS model adds even greater functionality with its combination of a single-channel sample processing head, an 8-channel pipetting head and an 8-channel bulk reagent dispenser all in one compact instrument. The Precision liquid handling systems offer the best solution in sample processors for today’s modern lab, providing the power of unattended operation and the simplicity and economy lacking in high-end liquid handlers. Precision is specifically designed to fit into most biological safety cabinets and chemical fume hoods, while the intuitive Precision Power pc software simplifies the programming of applications from hit picking to serial dilutions. BioTek’s BioStack™ Microplate Stacker increases liquid handling throughput and provides walk-away automated processing of up to 50 microplates when integrated with Precision or Precision XS.

A configurable multi-station platform and powerful onboard software allow for customized applications. The unique XY transport design provides effortless 96- to 384-well plate transfers with the same pipette mechanism. BioTek's proprietary pipette technology provides a reliable way to pick up and seal standard tips with controlled force. Precision solves the sealing issues associated with conventional pipettes.
Precision Microplate Sample Handlers and Pipetting Systems offer an affordable alternative to liquid handling requirements, including user configurable multi-station platforms, volume ranges from as low as 1 µL and intuitive Precision Power software.

Precision optimizes safety in today's laboratory, by helping prevent eliminate repetitive motion injuries. Its compact size makes Precision ideally suited for installation into a biological safety cabinet. An internal software safeguard is available at any point in the liquid transfer if a pause or program abort is necessary.
Precision offers a variety of fluid transfer operations including:

  • Reagent addition
  • Mixing within a well
  • Serial dilutions
  • Rapid Dispense Mode
  • Plate replication
  • Sample transfer
    • Plate-to-plate (96 to 96, 384 to 384, 96 to 384)
    • Within a plate
