The Automation Partnership (TAP) will preview a benchtop automated dispensing system for maintaining centralised cell line libraries, screening operations or GMP cell bank production in September.
The Fill-it 48-way is compatible with Nunc's racks of 2ml and 5ml vials, supplied in racks pre-loaded with 48 vials.
Offering these bigger vial volumes, Fill-It 48-way allows processing of larger batches, therefore increasing throughput to ultimately reduce quality control overhead costs.
The Fill-It 48-way can be integrated with many liquid handlers and is compact enough to fit in a standard laboratory tissue culture cabinet to maintain aseptic conditions.
The Fill-It range, which includes SBS standard 24- and 96-way rack formats, are used for the efficient dispensing of cell suspensions and other liquids (biological and non-biological) into screw-cap micro tubes and cryovials.
Other versions of the range are available for all common vial and tube types, including, Corning, Greiner, Matrix, Micronic, Nalgene and Sarstedt.
The company will be exhibiting the Fill-it 48-way at the Elrig Drug Discovery Meeting on 1-2 September on stands K3-K4.
