The accurate pipetting of viscous liquids and cross-contamination between wells can be highly problematic when using conventional pipetting technologies, such as air displacement pipetting.
The dragonfly®'s positive displacement liquid handling capabilities eliminate these issues and can be used to optimize assays and formulations in a wide variety of application areas including: drug discovery, biotechnology, clinical and food industries.
Very high or very low viscous solutions, such as 100% glycerol, PEGs, alcohols, or detergent solutions, including thixotropic non-Newtonian ones, are easily pipetted with very high accuracy and precision. Liquids are dispensed via a noncontact unique dispensing technology to ensure there is zero cross-contamination between wells and the disposable tips eliminate cross-contamination between samples.
