Precise Dispensing for Reproducible Science
Patented Positive Displacement Technology
At the core of our liquid handling technology is a patented microfluidic valve cluster that can meter and dispense discrete volumes of liquid using positive displacement. This valve cluster can fill and dispense as fast as 20 times per second (exact speed depends on specific product). This proven technology is both incredibly precise and viscosity independent.
Can be produced in high quantity at low-cost for disposable applications where a sterile pump may be needed.
Large arrays of pumps are easily made. Optional independent channel control is available of each pump in the array.
Precise, repeatable dosing.
High flow rates can be achieved.
Active valves allow for bi-directional pumping. Diaphragm volumes from nanoliters to mililiters can be produced.
Capable of non-contact dispensing. High pressures and vacuums can be generated.
Used in several FORMULATRIX® products including the MANTIS® Liquid Handler, the TEMPEST® Liquid Handler, and the FORMULATOR® Crystallization Screen Builder.
