The BioMicroLab VolumeCheck 100 helps laboratories shift away from visual or manual inspection of well plates and tube racks by offering an automated alternative. With an affordable price point, the BioMicroLab VolumeCheck 100 is ideal for laboratories needing to integrate detection of low or high volumes in uncapped 96, 48 and 24-format well plates and tube racks into their workflow.
The VC100 uses innovative ultrasonic technology to measure the distance between the sensor and the height of the meniscus.
The instrument extrapolates the distance from a calibration table created by the user and easily outputs the volume for each well position.
The technology allows for efficient sample measurement of sample volume in a wide variety of labware and is compatible with a range of sample types.
The VolumeCheck 100 is able to scan and detect sample volumes in 96 well plates in just 1 minute with strong repeatability.
The VolumeCheck 100 liquid level sensor senses changes in sample volume in the sub 10 μL range for 96 well plates.
The VolumeCheck software user interface is designed for quality control applications, with an easy to analyze display. Operators can choose to scan rows, columns or entire racks for the most efficient throughput.
Laboratories around the world are choosing VolumeCheck instruments for standalone, non-contact volume detection of samples in well plates and uncapped tube racks at high speeds as fast as 30 seconds per rack (with the VolumeCheck 384 model).
The VolumeCheck uses ultrasonic technology to measure the distance between the sensor and the height of the meniscus. It then extrapolates the distance from a calibration table created by the user and outputs the volume. The technology allows for sample measurement of sample volume in a wide variety of labware.
The VolumeCheck software calibration wizard assists the user in efficiently creating the calibration table, which is based on known volumes of a given sample. Many calibration tables can be stored, making it easy to switch between sample types and different types of labware.
The resolution and accuracy will depend on whether the samples were centrifuged, any dimensional variation in labware consumables, the accuracy of the calibration tables created by the user, and the sample volume in the plates. The VolumeCheck returns a higher resolution with low volume plates vs. higher volume plates (PCR plates vs. 2.2mL deep well plates).
The VolumeCheck exhibits good repeatability, which makes it an appropriate choice for many volume inspection tasks.
The VolumeCheck software calibration wizard assists the user in efficiently creating the reference curve, which is known volume vs. distance measure to the meniscus for a given sample. Many reference curves can be stored, making it easy to switch between sample types and different types of labware.
