Tecan has introduced the D300e Digital Dispenser* for applications that need faster, reliable dispensing down to picoliter volumes. This innovative, simple-to-use device is ideal for the creation of assay plates, and can cut set-up times from hours or days to just minutes. Users can choose between dispensing aqueous solutions in combination with a surfactant – for the investigation of proteins, antibodies, enzymes and nucleic acids – and DMSO, for small molecule studies, offering greater flexibility for life sciences workflows.
The system’s sophisticated yet simple software guides you through every operation, minimizing training times and problem-solving call-outs, and providing straightforward set-up of enzyme profiles, dose-response curves and synergy studies. Even the most complex experimental plate layouts – such as drug-drug interaction studies – can be quickly and easily generated, with optional randomization to reduce the impact of edge effects and increase data integrity. The D300e is compatible with a wide range of microplate formats from 12 to 1,536 wells, including deep-well plates and, for maximum flexibility, can even accommodate SBS-format tube racks.
