96 & Fixed-8 (f8) VVP Specifications

Badge 96VVP - Liquid Handling Robot Arm CBadge

Features

  • Wide Dynamic Range: 1.5 µL to 1250 mL
  • Individual Volume in EVERY channel
  • Reporting and validation for all actions in EVERY channel
  • No tip attachment wear parts or volume drift
  • Liquid Level Detection (LLD) with clear tips in EVERY channel
  • Tip clogging Detection (TCD) in EVERY channel

The exclusive patented Air-driven 96 VVP & Fixed-8 (f8) VVP Volume Verified Pipetting Tools with integrated flow sensor are perfectly suited for liquid handling in single microliter to milliliter volumes.

The 96 VVP & Fixed-8 (f8) VVP Pipetting Tools operates with a pressure/vacuum source, typically in the range of ± 200 mbar gauge for aspiration/dispense pressure.  An solenoid valve controlling each channels operation, gives both tools the ability to pipet independent, ‘different,’ volumes in every channel/tip.  An integrated high level Warp Series Motion Controller, speeds communication between the pressure source, pipetting unit and arm mechanism to allow an efficient and rapid feedback to confirm and report valid volume transfers.

96 & f8 Operating Principle

Aspiration and dispense of the liquid sample is driven by vacuum and positive pressure.  The Fixed-8 channel picture represents a single row, of the 12 rows needed in the production of the 96 VVP Head.

96 & f8 Performance

i8 vvp chart1

An inlet port provides aspiration/dispense pressure to the channel. A solenoid valve is coupled to a silicon MEMS flow sensor that controls the pipetted volume and allows precise tracking of the operation of the channel.

The Flow sensor and the control electronics provide precise Liquid Level Detection (LLD). The LLD signal can be read via a hardware line. Triggering of pipetting actions can be driven via a hardware line, in addition to being operable via software command on the serial line. A wide range of applications can thus be rapidly implemented.

Features                   (Release date in 2017)

  • 8 Individual spreading channels with independent Z axis
  • Wide Dynamic Range: 1.5 µL to 1250 mL
  • Reporting and validation for all actions in EVERY channel
  • No tip attachment wear parts or volume drift
  • Liquid Level Detection (LLD) with clear tips in EVERY channel
  • Tip clogging Detection (TCD) in EVERY channel

The Air-driven i8 VVP Spreadable Tip Arm with integrated flow sensor is perfectly suited for liquid handling in sub-microliter to milliliter volumes.

The i8 VVP Spreadable Tip Arm operates with a pressure/vacuum source, typically in the range of ± 200 mbar gauge for aspiration/dispense pressure.  An integrated high level i8 motion controller, from our Warp2 Motion Controller line, speeds communication between the pressure source, pipetting unit and arm mechanism to allow an efficient and rapid feedback to confirm valid volume transfers.

i8 Operating Principle

Aspiration and dispense of the liquid sample is driven by vacuum and positive pressure.  Each channel is its own self enclosed independent system.
