The bulk reagent dispenser is a convenient and reliable laboratory instrument. The newest models from Thermo Electron Corporation include a multidrop combi smart dispense head. Designed with eight nozzles and two dispense heads, the new bulk reagent dispensers can handle a wide variety of applications. The color touch screen user interface makes it easy to change the settings and define up to 99 liquid handling programs. The system also has a plate stacker that increases throughput by storing well plates in chimneys. It can handle up to 50 plates, and is compatible with a variety of lidded trays.
A microplate bulk reagent dispenser typically uses a microprocessor-controlled syringe pump to dispense the reagents. While both pump types have their advantages and disadvantages, users should consider their preferences before making a purchase. If a laboratory requires both pump types, it will incur additional costs and need to buy two different instruments. BioTek's MultiFlo(tm) Microplate Dispenser offers a dual syringe bulk dispenser and a peristaltic pump.
When it comes to reliability, bulk reagent dispensers have come a long way in the last decade. With the most recent improvements, these devices are more reliable and more robust than they were even a decade ago. Despite these improvements, however, there is still room for improvement. One of the most common problems that high throughput users have is the inability to use their bulk receptacles consistently. Those concerns should be addressed before a purchase is made.
Reliability: The reliability of a bulk reagent dispenser is generally high, with 95% of their operational time being interrupted by instrument failures or dispensing problems. The most common problems reported were tip clogging, retrieval of unused reagents, and routine fluidics path clean-outs. Some of these problems have already been resolved in recent years. The current performance of a bulk regent dispenser is a major deciding factor for purchasing a new bulk reacting device.
Historically, bulk reagent dispensers were not reliable enough to dispense below 1-2 mL, but as assay miniaturisation improved, the need for lower volumes became more widespread. In recent years, bulk reagent dispensers have been pressurised and equipped with individual addressable channels. In addition to the size and weight of the containers, the bulk reagent dispensers have numerous features and are a valuable laboratory tool.
The bulk reagent dispenser uses a non-contact technology to dispense liquid. In other words, the bulk reagent dispenser is not able to make contact with the destination plate. The reagent dispense head moves rapidly over the plate and dwells over the well. This system is highly flexible and can handle a wide variety of liquids. Soluble reagents in the dispensers are easily replaced.
This dispenser is a great addition to any office building. The user simply holds the button for a few seconds to confirm their human identity. There are several models available in the market and each one has its own unique features. The most notable difference is that the speed of dispensing is significantly faster than other machines. A quick and easy way to identify yourself is by using the button on the dispenser. Here are the top ones. Read on to learn about their features.
The Lateral Flow Dispenser, also called rapid test Dispenser, is specially designed for lateral flow assay test kit manufacturing. It is easy to distribute micro volume reagent or colloidal gold liquid on NC membrane and widely used in rapid test production line.
