|Piro Pipetting Robot|
(Piro Pipetting Robot from Dornier LTF)
On a very small 600 mm x 490 mm bench top workspace the PIRO provides a 16 position deck (12 x SBS standard plates and 3 x special format plate positions, 1 waste/tip dispose position). A vast amount of tube formats including 384-well plates to even up to 50 ml tubes can be handled by the robot using a wide range of pipette tips (20 μl, 50 μl, 200 μl, 1000 μl).
Active pipetting control through "liquid level sensing" is completed by tip picking control and tip ejecting control. High sophisticated pipetting routines ensuring liquid transfers are dropless and aerosol free. Deck-sterilisation through an inbuild UV-burner provides upmost safety from any cross contamination (optional). The Piro uses Non-conductive tips.
