Hudson’s Micro10x™ Reagent Dispenser provides a combination of fast filling speeds, high accuracy, and extreme flexibility ordinarily found only among large, expensive liquid handling robots. It has a very small footprint saving benchspace. The Micro10x accurately dispenses liquids in volumes down to low microliter range, and is the only small dispenser capable of tip-touchoff to ensure a clean dispense of high surface-tension fluids. Its positive-displacement pump head is adjustable in increments of 10nL, and never requires recalibration. The leading competitor needs constant calibration and the purchase of replacement dispensing cassettes. The pump is available in two different sizes (0.25″ or 0.375″ barrel) to maximize accuracy at low and high volumes. The Micro10x microplate dispenser can be used as a stand alone laboratory instrument or integrated into laboratory workstation.
The Micro10x has optional valving to allow for up to 10 bottles of reagents, buffers, culture media or solvents. It has full robotic control of the filler head, and automatically adjusts to the height AND well-pattern of any SBS-standard microplate: from low-profile 1536-well plates to tall, 96-well deep-well plates. It is well-suited to use in ELISA applications as a dispenser of conjugate and stop solutions. The Micro10x can also be used for dispensing culture media into petri dishes, OmniTrays and other plates.
The Micro10x reagent dispenser can be loaded and operated manually, but is also fully-compatible with robotic arms (such as Hudson’s PlateCrane EX microplate handler). And, because the filler head itself moves, not the plate, it can be used IN-LINE with Hudson’s LabLinx high-performance track based microplate handling system for unparalleled throughput and ease of setup. It also integrates with over 200 lab instruments made by other manufactures.
The Micro10x offers:
Typical Dispense times for an entire plate:
Hudson’s Micro10x was designed to meet the needs of high throughput laboratory dispensing requiring economical, highly-accurate μL-level dispensing and is widely used for drug discovery or genomic and proteomic assays. Its positive-displacement pump head and tip-touchoff capability overcomes differences in fluid viscosity and surface tension so that results are consistent regardless of the fluid being dispensed.
