Features of VOYAGER II
Electronically Adjustable Tip Spacing The VOYAGER II pipettes feature the only motorized adjustable tip spacing in the industry. By the push of a button it allows the tip spacing to expand anywhere between 4.5 mm and 33 mm (depending on the model). This enables access to a wide variety of labware, such as microplates, tube racks and gel boxes. Refer to the application tab for examples and a detailed description of the tip spacing options.
The motorized tip spacing offers many advantages over manual tip spacing adjustments:
- Single handed operation leaves the other hand free to handle labware.
- On the fly access to up to 3 user-defined tip spacings.
- These user defined tip spacings are saved. No need to memorize spacings of different labware formats.
GripTips snap on Do your pipette tips ever loosen, leak or fall off? This is a common issue in laboratories, caused by the use of universal pipette tips. Such tips require “hammering on” which stretches the shape of the pipette tip rim. The stretched pipette tip rim immediately starts moving back to its original shape, away from the tip cone. This can cause leaking, misaligned tips and even pipette tips that completely fall off the pipette!
This will never happen with any VOYAGER II electronic pipette / GripTip combination. Featuring a low attachment force and a low ejection force, GripTips effortlessly snap onto the tip fittings and are easily ejected. Also, GripTips feature a high lateral resistance once attached to the VOYAGER II pipettes. This means GripTips are always firmly attached and perfectly aligned, regardless of how many side well touch offs are performed. You no longer have to hammer your pipette tips on or worry about pipette tips falling off!
Touch Wheel Interface The Touch Wheel interface offers a quick and ergonomic way to modify pipetting parameters. It enables you to browse through menus, change pipetting volumes and speeds or other settings.
Instead of repeatedly pressing buttons or twisting fingers to modify volumes, you simply slide your finger over the Touch Wheel. Changing a dispense volume has never been so fast and easy!
Full Color Screen All INTEGRA pipettes feature full text menus, displaying pipetting protocols without abbreviations. This makes INTEGRA pipettes particularly easy to understand and intuitive to use.
The entire menu structure is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese.
Various Pipetting Modes For the most common liquid handling tasks 10 preset pipetting programs are available, in which only basic parameters such as volume and speed need to be defined.
- Repeat Dispense
- Sample Dilute
- Manual Pipet
- Reverse Pipet
- Variable Dispense
- Variable Aspirate
- Sample Dilute/Mix
- Serial Dilution
For more elaborate pipetting protocols, up to 40 user defined custom programs can be created. The custom program is a step-based setup queuing liquid handling steps such as aspirate, dispense, mix and more.
VIALINK Software NTEGRA electronic pipettes can be connected to VIALINK, a pipette management software. With VIALINK even complex custom programs can be quickly created and stored in a library on the computer, ensuring a backup is always available. Then, copy the programs onto your pipette to start your assay.
To connect a pipette to the PC and VIALINK, a charging / communication stand (4211) or a linear stand with charging /communication station (3215 and 3218) is required.
