More Than a Reagent Dispenser
While traditional hand-held pipettes, or larger automated liquid handlers greatly deteriorate in accuracy and precision below 2 µL volumes, the MANTIS® automated liquid handler prevails in Efficiency, Reproducibility and Versatility.

Overview of the MANTIS®
The MANTIS automated liquid handler is the easy and affordable solution to quickly increase the reproducibility and quality of your research as well as throughput and efficiency of your laboratory. The diaphragm-based chip design is liquid class compatible, easily dispensing aqueous and organic solutions. Additionally, the MANTIS will dispense in any SBS template from 6 to 1536 well plates, and can be easily programmed to dispense to custom designs as needed.
Enhance Laboratory Efficiency
Efficient research means that reagent dead volumes, tip consumption, and reaction volumes are minimized.
The MANTIS liquid handler dispenses volumes from 100 nL to 100s of mL allowing researchers to commonly run 2-5 µL reaction volumes in genomics and screening workflows.
To minimize dead volume, reagents plug directly into the microfluidic chip. Dead volumes are further reduced to just 6 μL by using pipette tips as reagent reservoirs, making the Mantis ideal for dispensing even the most precious reagents.
Normalize your assay plate, quickly and easily
- Software calculates the normalization values.
- The Continuous Flow (CF) chip bulk dispenses at >600 µL/sec, therefore, quickly normalizing each sample tube, well and plate
Highly Reproducible Data
Since liquid handling imprecision impacts experimental reproducibility, researchers consider CVs to be a vital factor when considering the automation of their research.
At the core of the MANTIS' microfluidic dispensing chip is a valve cluster that measures and dispenses discrete volumes of liquid. This valve cluster has two micro-diaphragms (select either 100 nL and 500 nL or 1 μL and 5 μL) that can fill and dispense as rapidly as 10 times per second.
|Low Volume Chip||CV*|
|High Volume Chip||CV*|
|Continuous Flow Chip||CV*|
* = The coefficient of variation (CV) is the average of three independent microfluidic Chip readings.
Versatility for any and all labs
The MANTIS dispenses any reagent efficiently and reproducibly regardless of volume, viscosity, temperature, concentration, and research experience. It is no wonder that every year, more and more researchers discover and obtain the MANTIS for dispensing reagents as a part of their diverse set of scientific workflows.
