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 volume range depending on the application, without a need for any tools. The intuitive interface through a Microsoft® Surface Pro Tablet, and EZ-Load tip technology combined with fully automated X, Y and Z drives, create exceptionally straightforward and user-friendly automated pipetting.
The automated split level plate elevators for plate sampling enable researchers to simply raise or lower plate/reservoir to a programmable height. An interchangeable pipetting core provides flexibility to choose from a 96 or 384 core to determine the configuration most suitable for a given application. The easy to program serial dilution protocols enable access to every column in a 24, 96, & 384 well plate or reservoirs with multiple sections.
The instrument is easily and intuitively controlled through a simple touchscreen interface and requires minimal operator training. The WiFi enabled tablet delivers additional flexibility and allows for operation outside the fume hood.
The compact design conserves precious bench space and fits easily into suitably-sized hoods.
The S3 uses Apricot’s unique EZ-Load disposable tips for simple, no-pressure loading without a requirement for any tools.
The S3 benefits from a readily available API to support integration with other laboratory equipment including microplate stackers, robotic arms, and automation work cells.
