Previously, high-throughput microplate pipetting was only possible by investing in fully automated liquid handling robots. These robots are not only expensive, they are also complex and difficult to program, requiring specially trained users.
That’s where VIAFLO 96/384 come into play. With this 96 and 384 channel pipette, INTEGRA meets the need for an affordable, compact and easy to use pipette that provides increased productivity. The unique operating concept makes VIAFLO 96/384 as easy to use as any traditional handheld pipette.
How It Works
VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 enable transfers of 96 and 384 samples in a single step, thus increasing pipetting throughput and reproducibility significantly. At a fraction of the cost, they often surpass throughput capabilities of even expensive robots.
Intuitive Handheld Operation
VIAFLO 96/384 is a handheld 96- or 384-channel pipette designed to fit on any lab bench. It features a unique operating concept making it as easy to use as a traditional handheld pipette. Hold the control unit and push to move the pipetting head to the desired pipetting position. This unique servo-assisted steering mechanism allows fast, precise and stress free multichannel pipetting without the need for position programming.
Quick And Comprehensible Menu Navigation
All INTEGRA electronic pipettes have a common user interface making it easy to switch between different systems without a second thought.
A full colour screen and proven touch wheel interface offer quick and comprehensible
menu navigation. Simply by moving the finger over the touch wheel, menus and settings can be accessed and changed.
VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 can be connected to a computer via USB port. With the free to use Vialink Pipette Management Software, user defined custom programs can be created on the computer and then be transferred onto VIAFLO 96/384.
Always Work In The Optimal Volume Range
Users can simply change the pipetting head of their VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 to guarantee optimal matching of the available volume range to the application performed. Changing a pipetting head of VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 is easy and takes less than one minute.
Each channel of a pipetting head is independent, having its own precise piston and sealing to exclude any cross-channel influences for error-free pipetting.
Space Saving Footprint
With its compact design, this benchtop system requires little space on a lab bench and fits into most laminar flow hoods to allow work under sterile conditions. Up to three stage positions accommodate tip racks, microplates, reagent reservoirs or other SBS size labware.
Up to 8 microplates can be stacked to make maximum use of the stage positions.
