Automated 6-station, syringe-based 96-channel pipettor for plate replication, plate reformatting, reagent addition, PCR setup, and Maldi spotting.

The PP-96S-100 offers 96 channel high performance positive displacement pipetting that is ideal for low-volume multichannel microplate pipetting applications. The microprocessor-controlled pipetting mechanism uses 96 individual syringes and provides accurate and precise positive displacement pipetting of nanoliter or 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 Personal Pipettor (PP) is a popular series of affordable liquid handling systems with the versatility and reliability required for today’s demanding laboratory environment. The PP series offers the majority of automated features that many laboratories need at a reasonable price, making it possible for each technician to truly have their own “personal” pipettor.           
The PP-96S-100 uses 96 precision glass syringes for positive displacement pipetting. This provides an ideal complement for the PP series for situations where positive displacement is a requirement, such as for very low-volume applications or specialized applications such as PCR setup. or Maldi spotting. The PP-96S will automatically index the pipetting head if necessary for accessing 384-well plates.
