BioTek-MultiFlo

BioTek MultiFlo
Manufacturer: BioTek Instruments
Model: MultiFlo Series

BioTek’s new MultiFlo Microplate Dispenser is the latest advancement in bulk dispensers offering up to four reagents dispensed in parallel with one compact instrument. The MultiFlo offers a choice of either peristaltic pump or microprocessor controlled syringe drive technologies. Users can purchase one channel now and add others in the future. A wide array of plate types are accommodated from 6- to 1536-well formats. The MultiFlo dispenses a broad volume range from 1 microL to 3 mL accurately and precisely with a fully modular and upgradable design. BioTek’s proprietary angled dispensing ensures compatibility with all dispense protocols including reagent addition to loosely adherent cell monolayers. For assays requiring minimum reagent usage, the MultiFlo prime volume is under 1 mL. A built-in priming trough is designed to allow both recovery of reagents or to send primed reagent directly to waste.
