Integra has launched the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot to put automated pipetting within reach of virtually every laboratory. Using any Integra electronic multichannel pipette, this compact system offers laboratory automation at an affordable price, providing reproducible and error-free processing while eliminating repetitive manual pipetting tasks.
The ASSIST PLUS is designed to offer flexibility without the need for dedicated personnel or complex programming. Click in any of the company’s VIAFLO and VOYAGER electronic pipettes to automate pipetting tasks. From plate filling and reagent addition to serial dilutions, the system eliminates the influence of human error and interoperator variability on pipetting, leading to better reproducibility. As the smallest pipetting robot on the market to offer variable tip spacing, it is also ideal for tasks such as tube-to-plate transfers and plate reformatting.
Programmable either directly on the pipette or remotely using Integra’s VIALAB or VIALINK software packages, ASSIST PLUS allows users to set up their protocols quickly and easily, then perform other activities while the robot carries out the pipetting task precisely and reliably.
Combined with broad laboratory ware compatibility and a range of accessories – from tube racks to high-capacity reservoirs – this ensures it fits seamlessly into various laboratory workflows, while still giving the option to use the same electronic multichannel pipettes for manual tasks as required.
