INTEGRA has prepared an explanatory application guide that demonstrates the benefits of its electronic adjustable tip spacing VOYAGER II pipette range in transferring liquid samples between different labware formats. 

 VOYAGER IIMany laboratory applications require liquid transfers between various labware formats. Due to varying requirements in their sample processing, different labware vessels are typically used for sample storage, processing and analysis tasks. Traditional multichannel pipettes were not designed to accommodate the wide variety of labware formats used today because their tip to tip spacing is optimized for use with standard 96-well microplates.

To overcome this limitation researchers have traditionally had to use single channel pipettes to perform liquid sample transfers between different labware. Although a single channel pipette offers the versatility to cope with this task, it lacks the throughput performance. Also single channel pipettes are more error prone and time-consuming to work with because more transfer steps are required compared to a multichannel pipette.

The VOYAGER II pipette offers a solution to this problem. It features electronic adjustable tip spacing, enabling the pipette to optimally access almost any labware by the touch of a button. The VOYAGER II can adjust its tip spacing anywhere between 4.5 mm and 33 mm.

Lab scientists choosing to download the new application guide* can learn how to significantly reduce the many hours they spend pipetting and minimize transfer errors when pipetting liquids between tubes, vials and microplates. Example applications covered in the new application guide include screening compound libraries, genotyping, qPCR and cell seeding.
