With Thermo Scientific* PocketTip D.A.R.T.'S, achieve lower volume transfer capability of 50-250µL resulting from a combination of the internally molded capillary pocket and the unique surface sealing of the tip for compound screening procedures. Reduce reagent, lab ware and sample costs while improving data quality through the elimination of intermediate pipetting steps with soft in-tip mixing.
Thermo Scientific PocketTip D.A.R.T.'s tips combine the internally molded capillary pocket of PocketTips with the unique surface sealing of DARTs tips, to provide outstanding low-volume transfer capability of 50 to 250nL. Compatible with the current offering of Matrix 96- and 384- channel interchangeable pipetting heads. Achieving lower volume transfers with existing Hydra DT and PlateMate compound screening procedures can contribute to the reduction of reagent, labware, and sample costs while improving data quality by eliminating intermediate pipetting steps and providing soft in-tip mixing. Available in 96- and 384- channel format with 50, 100, and 250nL pocket sizes Sterile format is available for sensitive liquid handling procedures or operations that require sterility Allow existing Matrix automated liquid handlers to accommodate low-volume dispensing for compound screening procedures Require only minor procedural adjustments to PlateMate and Hydra DT instrumentation By transferring nanoliter volumes directly to assay plate, eliminate timely aqueous dilution steps that can cause precipitation and result in unreliable data Gently combine sample and assay materials with soft in-tip mixing, removing the need for offline procedures and improving data quality with thorough mixing that will not damage sensitive material Consistent accuracy and precision is tightly controlled during the molding process Purity and straightness validation is also performed on compatible instrumentation to ensure only the highest quality With instrument compatibility range starting from the Matrix Hydra DT, on-the-fly dose response curves or assay development can be set up with simple Hydra DT programming Higher throughput needs can be met with the Matrix PlateMate 2x3 and Catalyst Express or Matrix PlateMate Plus instruments Automation Sales Specialists are available to assist with instrument programming and modifications or instrument validation of any Matrix automated liquid handler Five Simple Steps [list=1] Source Plate: Sample is aspirated and pocket fills to capacity (50, 100 or 250nL) Source Plate: Sample is dispensed back to vessel and pocket remains full Wash Plate: The portion of the tip below the pocket is washed to eliminate carryover Destination Plate: Sample/liquid in destination plate is aspirated to pocket level in the tip Destination Plate: Sample from the pocket and destination plate are dispensed back to the destination plate
