The Formulatrix Tempest is a non-contact, bulk reagent dispenser based on proprietary modular microfluidic chip technology. It is configurable to simultaneously deliver any volume of up to 12 ingredients through 96 individually controlled channels. The Tempest’s patented microfluidic valve clusters use positive displacement to dispense discrete volumes of liquid to 96-, 384-, or 1536-well plates with non-recoverable dead volumes as low as 50 µL per ingredient. The optional stackers and barcode reader add additional flexibility to the instrument.
The Mantis is small liquid handling robot which utilizes a unique pipette input to allow for an incredibly low dead-volume. This single-channel liquid dispenser is robot accessible and can accept SBS plate types.
