The BNX 1536 liquid handling system provides both precise dispensing and thorough microplate washing in a single instrument. The small footprint houses a built-in vacuum and air pressure pump; no external pumps are needed.
Each of the four reservoir bottles has its own fluid path to individual dispense heads, allowing four different fluids to be dispensed into a single microplate. A single aspiration head allows fast and efficient liquid removal from microplate wells for plate washing applications. The intuitive software provides a high degree of control over operating parameters, allowing rapid processing of robust assays and gentle processing of cell based assays. The system is robot compatible, with a robot-friendly plate carriage and accessible RS-232 COM port.
With its Windows compatible, drag-and-drop software, the BNX 1536 provides a high degree of control over process parameters. Column selection offers the choice of dispensing only a few columns, or a complete plate. For optimal dispense accuracy, the software allows fine tuning the dispense volume using the Liquid Factor tool. Dispense pressure can be lowered for a gentler dispense when using loosely adherent cells or weakly bound antibodies. A spiration controls allow the probe height, probe offset, aspiration rate and aspiration time to be set for lowest residual volume or gentlest processing.
