Simplifying PCR set-up with INTEGRA’s range of pipettes
25 Nov 2021
INTEGRA Biosciences’ selection of liquid handling tools is designed to provide scientists worldwide with the solutions they need for their PCR workflows.
The company offers an array of options for manual, electronic or fully automated pipetting, with volumes ranging between 0.2 µl and 5000 µl. These can be combined with the company’s GripTip system, which ensures pipette tips never leak or fall off.
A combination of ever-growing workloads and the need for rapid turnaround times mean that the latest liquid handling technologies are proving critical to cope with increased demand. Options such as the VIAFLO multichannel electronic pipettes help to overcome the challenges of combining accurate results with high throughput. VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipettes – featuring electronic one-handed tip spacing function – address the common issue of transferring liquids between different labware formats, such as PCR plates and tubes.
For high throughput PCR set-up, INTEGRA has a suite of options to cater for different lab sizes and budgets. The VIAFLO 96, VIAFLO 384 and MINI 96 electronic pipettes can reduce pipetting steps while increasing productivity and reproducibility, while the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot can be combined with the full range of VOYAGER and VIAFLO electronic multichannel pipettes to automate and streamline workflows. The ASSIST PLUS allows users to optimise settings – including tip immersion depth, and pipetting speeds and angles – to deliver reproducible and precise results.
