"...These instruments grant researchers manual control over each stage of the pipetting process, simplifying error recovery compared to fully automated liquid-handlers. We primarily use the 384-channel heads, which not only enhance precision in comparison to multichannel hand-pipetting but also yield more uniform plates, thereby mitigating potential plate-effect related issues in our assays. They are super easy to use and cost effective, they became so popular we had to order 2 more...
