apricot instrumentation provides accurate, precise and intuitive automated pipetting technology for convenient general use across your entire team. The small footprint designs allow laboratories to maximize available space without compromising on pipetting performance.
"...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... ”
"5/5 easy to import, create or edit workflows / protocols. Our apricot S3 works really well for NGS protocols. 5/5 easy to calibrate and re-initialize. 5/5 great after sales care & customer services."
"The apricot S3 delivered high level of precision and accuracy in pipetting when we had it for the demo, the %CV was around 1.5%. It's nice to have a instrument that can pipet 0.5 uL to 125 uL in one pipet tray, which greatly facilitates our workflow. It is very easy to use and methods are easily written."
"User friendly software. Easy to do quick setup but also offers many different functions and options for more extensive assays. Reproducibility was very good in a time-saving manner. Instrument allows for mid to high throughput assays."
Laboratories across the biotech and pharmaceutical industries are increasingly automating their liquid handling and dispensing capabilities with versatile, scalable, and affordable solutions that cater to a range of applications.
The apricot S3 offers automated high performance 96 and 384 channel pipetting, equally suited to low or high-throughput use. The instrument’s interchangeable pipetting cores allow researchers to simply select the dispense range depending on the application, without a need for any tools.
This easy to use and accessible 96 and 384 channel liquid handling system with interchangeable pipetting core is up to 12x faster than an 8-channel handheld pipettor. Ideal for laboratories making their first step towards automation, it incorporates adjustable split level manually actuated plate elevators for individual sampling using multiple plates and supports a variety of SBS format labware.
The versatile apricot DC1 unlocks a whole raft of benefits for laboratories taking their first steps towards liquid handling automation. As a highly accessible platform, the apricot DC1 empowers laboratory staff, allowing teams to benefit quickly from increased throughput, reliable standardization, and enhanced data quality when copying, mixing, pooling, aliquoting, and preparing the serial dilution of liquids.
The apricot PP5 brings together the functionality of several pipettors into one space-saving instrument suited for both production and laboratory environments. Its accurate, reliable and repeatable automation minimizes repetitive tasks and eliminates pipetting errors to increase productivity.
Our apricot pipette tips and consumables are designed to work in perfect combination with the apricot automated pipettors. Manufactured exclusively by SPT Labtech for our apricot instruments, the apricot EZ-load and AL tips deliver optimal liquid handling precision and accuracy.
