Liquid Handling Devices You Need In Your Laboratory

Every laboratory needs an automated liquid handling machine and other devices. Liquid handling is an important part of any process, whether you’re running a full-scale multifunction workstation or are using simply one pipet. Liquid handling devices and machines have come a long way—the first system for liquid handling was presented in 1875 by Thaddeus M. [...]

Key Components of Efficient Automated Liquid Handling Workstations

Lab technicians measure, dispense, and mix liquids every day. Liquid handling is a key element of scientific research in various industries, from microbiology to food manufacturing to cosmetics. Common microplate sizes range from single -384 wells and beyone, which could take minutes to fill if done by hand. As a result, many companies have integrated [...]

Uses Of An Automated Liquid Dispenser In The Laboratory

Components of a pH Meter In 1961, J.J. Rodriguez of Berkeley, California, introduced a patent for an "improved buret." He designed it to dispense liquids like a buret and said it will provide “a novel and improved buret capable of use in pipetting.” Fast-forward to today. An automated liquid handling/dispensing system in the laboratory can [...]

Components of a Liquid Handling System

In modern science and pharmaceutical laboratories, tiny amounts of liquid must be transferred many times to perform everything from genetic testing to drug screens. As science has improved, the amount of liquid needed for accurate testing has been reduced to low microliter and even nanoliter amounts. Trying to transfer these very small quantities fully and [...]

COVID-19 Testing Liquid Handling – Microplate/Test Tube Handling Considerations

As of April 8, 2021, approximately 154,000,000 people worldwide have been fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This represents 2 percent of the world’s population, leaving 49 out of every 50 people still susceptible to the virus and its potentially deadly illness.Consequently, testing for the coronavirus and using all public safety protocols [...]
