Advancements in Automated Liquid Handling



Automated liquid handling has become necessary in labs to cut down on manual work and keep up with growing workloads while maintaining efficiency, reproducibility, and careful use of resources. Formulatrix has introduced cutting-edge liquid handling technologies for routine lab operations like serial dilution, normalization, cherry picking, plate broadcasting, pooling, etc.

In this webinar, we will introduce our two new liquid handlers, both with different pipetting technologies: the F.A.S.T., a 96-channel positive displacement liquid transfer system, and the FLO i8, an 8-channel air displacement liquid handler with automated liquid transfer optimization. The F.A.S.T. (Flow Axial Seal Tip) is a reliable and easy-to-use liquid transfer system designed to quickly move any viscosity of liquid with its one-of-a-kind positive displacement, 96-channel head. Its high accuracy, precision, and reliability for low-volume sample transfers saves researchers time and reduces reagent costs.


The FLO i8 Liquid Handler is ideal for optimizing the protocols and simplifies experimental design, and execution. Its intuitive software, flexible hardware, and intelligent pipetting guarantee accurate and precise liquid transfers without specifying source volumes, labware geometries, and liquid properties.
