Total Pipetting Solution™

The TPS-384 offers 384 channel high performance pipetting that is ideal for low-volume multichannel microplate pipetting and for serial dilution applications. 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, 384 or 1536-well microplates. The high-speed pipetting system provides short processing times by delivering liquids through up to 384 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-384 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-384 electronically loads and unloads pipetting heads in a few seconds, allowing simple and easy set-up for the task at hand. The TPS-384 will automatically index the pipetting head if necessary for accessing 1536-well plates.
