Model OEM-PCNC-0055-06

Air Driven Volume Range 0.5 uL to 1000 uL

Product summary

The Air-driven OEM 96-Channel Pipetting Head with integrated flow sensor is suited for liquid handling in microliter to milliliter volume range.  This product has been developed in close collaboration with Dynamic Devices to fit seamlessly in the Lynx Liquid Handling Platform. OEM opportunities are available for clinical diagnostics and dedicated application systems.

This product has been designed to fit a wide range of applications where action validation and process surveillance is required. The use of a dedicated MEMS flow sensor at the pipetting site allows complete validation of aspiration and dispense actions in real time, as well as providing clogging detection and other process monitoring information.

The Pipettor operates with a pressure/vacuum source, typically in the range of ± 200 mbar gauge for aspiration/dispense pressure. The pressure controller further acts as System Controller by providing a single port access from the host computer. Integrated high level coordination between the pressure source and the pipetting unit allows an efficient and rapid integration of the unit onto our customer's automated platforms.

Performance

Operating Principle:

Aspiration and dispense of the liquid sample is driven by vacuum and positive pressure.
