Automation company Festo is showing its new low-weight 96-channel bulk dispense head at the 2019 American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) annual meeting in Anaheim, CA.
The bulk dispense head allows users to distribute reagents into 96- or 284-well microplates at high-throughput speeds, according to Festo. Its dispense volumes range from less than 10 µL to more than 100 µL, with a coefficient of variation generally less than 5%. Other notable features of the device include the following:
- Low weight (roughly 1 kg)
- Modular cassette design
- Individual control for each eight-well column in the microplate
- Usable with disposable or fixed-tip applications
