Improving the Reproducibility of Serial Dilutions

Serial dilutions can be difficult to perform reproducibly due to the many mixing steps that are required. The INTEGRA VIAFLO ASSIST enables scientists of all pipetting skill levels to achieve better serial dilution results.

To use the VIAFLO ASSIST, simply mount a VIAFLO II electronic pipette onto the pipette adapter, define the number of mixing cycles, speed and mix volume, and press the run button. VIAFLO ASSIST will then obtain the protocol via Bluetooth from the VIAFLO II electronic pipette and automatically execute it.

Questions from the Vault

We have so many questions filling our forums that sometimes questions can be missed and go without answers. Can you help us provide answers for these users with unanswered questions?

CEM Corporation CEM Labwave9000 - Smart System 5 Cem microwave solids tester
I Have a question about this unit that we have been using for years. It seems like we are getting varied results from same samples. Our solids usual run approx 17.5% and I have seen them vary as much as 2 % from the same sample. Is it possible the balance needs cleaning? It has been a couple of years since it has been service. Advise this member.

Bio-Rad T100 - Black Screen
I was running a normal program but when I checked on the cycler the screen was all white. I turned it off, let everything cool and turned it back on and now the screen turns white and then black. Is there a way to manually reset? Advise this member.

Milton Roy Spectronic 1001 PLUS - Initializing
We have a Spectronic 1001 Plus and just today it stopped going from Initial to initializing step. I would appreciate if any one has any thoughts? Advise this member.
