The Viaflo 384, which is a handheld 384-channel electronic pipette that enables fast, precise, easy, and simultaneous transfer of samples, now has a new plate holder enabling 1536-well pipetting. Pipetting into 1536 well plates is a task requiring accurate liquid handling and precise tip positioning. For optimal alignment of the pipetting head with the target 1536-well plate, the new plate holder is adjustable in the y-direction. The easy-to-use slide function of the plate holder shifts the 1536-well plate in order to have access to all four quadrants with a 384-channel pipetting head.
