The Lynx Liquid Handling Robot’s High Precision 96 VVP, 24 VVP (large volume) & fixed-8 (f8) VVP independent volume pipetting tools allow the accurate and rapid transfer of samples from a 96, 384 or 1536 well microplates. This VVP flow sensor technology allows our 96, 24 and fixed-8 pipetting tools, to monitor and control each channel to verify volumetrically each liquid transfer, in addition to, having the ability to aspirate and dispense different volumes in each channel.

  • Volumetric transfers
  • Different volumes in each channel
  • Load columns or rows for dilution methods
  • 96, 24 & Fixed-8 VVP tools available
  • SM – Solid Mandrel tip loading technology
  • Full pipetting data tracking
  • Full pipetting liquid diagnostics
  • Award winning technology

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 continual service replacement.  This functionality expands a high throughput 96 tool 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 VVP technology also allows for LLD, Liquid Level Detection, in each channel for both the 96, 24 and f8 Tools. The system will create a flow of air and when the flow rate hits a solid meniscus, not triggering a false height for bubbles, the system will record the volume of liquid below the tip. This happens in every tip in the 96 and Fixed-8 VVP tools calculating every volume in a plate.

With Method Manager control software it is also possible to calculate residual volumes more accurately by creating a direct volume to height table within the software for each plate. The VVP tools may dispense 96/24/8 different volumes into a plate, from low to high, and then go and LLD each liquid height to create a actual volume versus height database for your plate definition. This way a direct correlation as opposed to a calculation is used for residual volumes. This helps define volumes in plates where the wells may have multiple shapes and areas.

Using the same clear automation tips for the 96 Standard Heads, 96 VVP Head and f8 Fixed-8 VVP avoids the confusion and costs of which tips are needed for each tool, and avoids the doubling of tip inventory levels and expensive lab shelf storage space.  For additional tip cost savings, tip washing stations are available and integrated right into the deck and software.

VVP Pipetting Tool Options:

The LYNX liquid handling platform has multiple options for VVP pipetting tools.  Any of the larger decks can carry dual arms, either of the same arms or in any combination with other VVP or Standard Volume (SV) syringe based tools, gripper tools and vision scanners.

96 VVP Pipetting Tool

With the flagship 96 VVP Pipetting Tool, 96 different volumes of 96 different liquids may be transferred without the need to calibrate each liquid for its own liquid class.  Now accomplish applications like DNA normalization and compounds dissolution on an entire plate in a single dispense.  In addition, have pipetting diagnostics for challenged samples in every tip, pipet complex challenging samples, like whole blood and plant/seed homogenates, with clot/clog detection and correction for individuals pipetting errors on-the-fly.

24 VVP Pipetting Tool

Our new 24 VVP Pipetting Tool allows 24 5mL disposable tips may be used for different ‘large volume’ transfers.  Now accomplish applications like liquid biopsy DNA magnetic bead purification on an entire plate in a single dispense.  By implementing the ClickBio extraction blocks, ‘plate processing’ of these larger format sample matrixes is now possible.  In addition, pipetting diagnostics for challenged samples, like whole blood and plant/seed homogenates, have clot/clog detection and correction for validated human serum methods.

Fixed-8 VVP Pipetting Tool

Transfer 8 different volumes of liquid with verified volume reporting.  For samples within microplate format, now transfer easily with our fixed-8 tip tool by elevating the spreading and independent Z axis capability, multiple axis control is reduced leading to a highly functional VVP pipetting tool with complete independent volume control and VVP pipetting diagnostics at an economical value.

24 Large Volume 5mL Tips

The 24 VVP Pipetting Tool was ground breaking of huge interest to automation applications that require larger volume transfers.  The 24 VVP Pipetting Tool now allows the ‘block’ processing of 24 5 mL samples in a single command with independent volumes in every tip.  With common DNA purification with liquid biopsy samples, the 24VVP can work with Clickbio large volume plates in order to fully automate the extraction process with standard microplate footprint hardware.

Pipetting Error Auto-Correction

One of the most sought after functionalities in high throughput liquid handling robotics is the ability to run individual channels within a multi-channel head, like our 96 VVP Pipetting Tool. Now, if pipetting errors are encountered by a channel, the aspiration is immediately stopped for just the erred channel while the rest of the samples continue to be aspirated to completion. The head may then raise out of the liquid and clear the erred channel and dip the head again into the samples to re-try ‘just’ the aspiration to correct for that channels error on-the-fly.
