MicroFlo Select and MicroFill Reagent Dispensers Comparison - Flow Rate and Velocity Differences between Peristaltic and Syringe Pump Dispensers
Flow rate is defined as the volume of fluid which passes through a dispense tip per unit of time. Velocity is the rate of change of fluid position.
Below find comparison tables for flow rates and velocities using BioTek’s MicroFlo Select and MicroFill Dispensers. This information will be useful when determining the most appropriate dispense technology and setting for a particular reagent and/or application.
96-well microplate = 1 tip/well
96-well microplate = 2 tips/well
