The instrument is easy to configure and offers a high degree of versatility for liquid handling tasks. Having the stackers and a time delay option is immensely helpful for biochemical screens and other applications. The software for plate teaching and creating protocols is very simple to work with.

We use the Tempest in a fully automated set-up for medium throughput quantitative analysis. The cv's are great and due to the ultra low dead volume we could dramaticly reduce reagent costings. Furthermore the very innovative and robust dispensing technology lead to reduced maintenance compared to the dispenser we used before. We are also very happy with the support by Formulatrix personnel. We definitely recommend the Tempest!

A fantastic instrument! We use the Tempest in our High Throughput biochemical profiling service. The team now has an automated process for our reagent additions that requires certain concentrations to be added to a plate in a "cherry picking" type of methodology. What was once done by two individuals can now be done by one. The Tempest has worked great

We use this instrument in our high throughput assays and it has resulted in increased accuracy and throughput for the lab. End user adoption has been fantastic and the team would like to purchase more Tempests! Assistance from support personnel and sales is exceptional. This is the best non-contact small volume dispenser on the market.

What we enjoy the most about tempest:
The minimal dead volume required makes it very attractive as you save a lot
The CV for small volume(1 to 2ul) appears much more consistent than peristaltic pump competitor.
The speed at which it is dispensed is much more gentle than a peristaltic pump competitor or a bioraptr. It has a level of value for adherent cells as you are more likely to loose less cells.
