Ideal for low-volume or high-volume multichannel microplate pipetting and for serial dilution applications.

The TPS-96 offers 96 channel high performance pipetting that is ideal for low-volume or high-volume multichannel microplate pipetting and for serial dilution applications. Two models are available: The TPS-96H for working with higher volumes and the TPS-96L for low volumes. The new 2-series uses a more efficient servo motor design for better speed, precision, and reliability. The microprocessor-controlled pipetting mechanism provides accurate and precise pipetting of microliter or sub-microliter volumes of samples into 96 or 384-well microplates. The high-speed pipetting system provides short processing times by delivering liquids through up to 96 channels simultaneously with precise volume control.       
The Total Pipetting Solution (TPS) represents a new generation of affordable liquid handling systems with the versatility and reliability required for today’s demanding laboratory environment. With the innovative Externally Sealed Pipette (ESP) tips, the TPS pipetting system surpasses its competition in terms of applications diversity and reliability. This powerful pipettor has a compact size that easily fits on laboratory benches and also can be placed in suitable laboratory hoods.       
The TPS-96 uses Apricot Designs’ unique head design which employs high-precision manufacturing to produce reasonably priced heads that are independent of the pipetting mechanism. The TPS-96 electronically loads and unloads pipetting heads in a few seconds, allowing simple and easy set-up for the task at hand. The TPS-96 will automatically index the pipetting head if necessary for accessing 384-well plates. The TPS-96H model is suitable for routine pipetting tasks for volumes up to 550 ul. The TPS-96L uses a smaller syringe mechanism and is optimal for low volume pipetting as low as 0.5 ul.
