The Lynx Liquid Handling Robot’s high precision 96 & 384 SV Standard Volume syringe based pipetting tools allow the accurate and rapid transfer of samples from a 96, 384 or 1536 well microplates. Using our syringe based pipetting technology developed over the past two decades, we give the Lynx an economical means to transfer the same volume of liquid across an entire 96, 384 or 1536 well plate.

  • Syringe based pipetting tools
  • Same volume in each channel
  • 96 & 384 core inserts are interchangeable in the arm
  • SM – Solid Mandrel tip loading technology
  • Economical solution to many liquid handling applications
  • Single tip, row & column tip pick up
  • Custom insets available

With the ability to have multiple 96 and 384 heads, even multiples of the same head, increased throughput without the increased cost of another platform makes the Lynx one of the most flexible and configurable liquid handling robotic workstations in today’s market.  Using the same clear Lynx automation tips for the 96 Standard Heads, 96 VVP Head and F8 Fixed-8 VVP Tool avoids the confusion and costs of which tips are needed in each method, and avoids the doubling of tip inventory levels and expensive lab shelf storage space. For additional tip cost savings, tip wash stations are available and integrated right into the deck and software.
The Lynx Liquid Handler SM (Solid Mandrel) tip loading technology allows the attachment of single tips, rows or columns of tips from anywhere on the deck while eliminating the need for wear parts, like O-ring seals, that need to be serviced and replaced regularly. This functionality expands the heads capabilities to applications like serial dilutions where it can pick up 8 tips in a row to serial dilute across a microplate or loading a MALDI target plate by loading a 6×6 matrix of tips.
The Lynx employs a new Z-drive system to load 96 and even 384 tips from any deck location. No longer are dedicated tip attachment mechanisms required to load tips. Just place 384 tip boxes anywhere on the deck to configure your application and press ‘go,’ no special gripper programs to load and unload tip boxes into a single tip loader position.

96 Syringe Based Pipetting

Our 96 SV Pipetting Tool allows the transfer of entire 96 well plates to either 96, 384 or even 1536 well plates. In this syringe design, the same volumes are transferred in every channel and there are options for Low and High volume configurations with the dual mandrel design.  This is the most economical head for high throughput liquid handling.

384 Syringe Based Pipetting

With the high loading forces required to load 384 well tips, the Lynx is specifically engineered to load tips from any position no the deck.  There are no loading areas, or tip crushers, required in any position, just place the 384 tip box down in a microplate locator and run your method with the flexibility you expect in a liquid handler.

This 384 Channel Pipetting Head is driven by semiconductor level linear motors assuring complete accuracy with no drift over time from other systems comprising of belts, gears and wear parts.  Having positional encoders built into each axis, the Lynx LM Linear Motor series allows the best positional accuracy for any liquid handling robot in todays market.  Even with head offsets for variable row tip attachment, the LM series hits even the most difficult microplates.

Load rows or columns of tips directly from the box

This 96 & 384 SV Pipetting Tools also have the ability to load rows or columns from multiple places across the deck.  Using the head offset, the 96 & 384 channel head may pick up a single tip, single row or a column of tips directly out of a box without affecting head leveling.

Configure with a 384 adapter to a 96 channel head

The 384 Channel Pipetting Tool has the ability to be swapped with a 96 channel tool using 384 channel format tip adapters.  This ability gives the user opportunity to reformat a library from an initial 96 well format to 384 well format and then swap the head for the standard 384 channel head for higher throughput for 384 plate replication or 1536 well consolidation.  This also allows 384 style tips to be used increasing the tips per position 4 fold over a 96 tip box.
