Multidrop Combi nL Reagent Dispenser

Thermo Scientific Multidrop Combi nL is an automatic –reproducible low-volume reagent dispenser. Multidrop Combi nL’s valve-based dispensing technology provides an easy-to-start and easy-to-handle approach to low-volume assays. Ease of use does not mean a performance compromise. Instead, the Multidrop Combi nL dispenser guarantees high-quality assay data with unparalled precision and accuracy.

The Multidrop Combi nL dispenser provides consistent high-throughput dispensing into 1536, 384 and 96-well plates, covering a volume range of 50 nl to 50 µl. It dispenses repeatably into plates with a variable height, allowing the user to fill low-profile and standard-format microplates without changing cartridges or manifolds.

Precalibrated liquid types allow a quick selection at startup. Additional liquids can be set on the unit in the standalone mode or using FILLit Software. The instrument can be used to dispense all common reagents, diluents, and buffers, as well as viscose solutions, cells and beads, making it ideal for a broad range of assays. The loss of reagent is minimized with the low dead volume and the reagent recovery feature, which allows the user to backflush all the remaining reagents from the liquid path.

Bead-based Assay

  • Reliable low-volume dispensing – precise dispensing over a 50 nl to 50 µl range, giving high-quality assay data
  • Increased flexibility – dispensing repeatably into plates with a variable height, allowing the user to fill either rows, columns or wells with the easy-to-use FILLit™ PC software
  • Effortless dispensing – the visual, icon-based on-board user interface makes all functions easy to set up, use and maintain
  • Reduced reagent cost – low-volume dispensing, a minimal dead volume, and the backflush function minimize the use of expensive reagents
  • High throughput – the fast dispensing, combined with full robotic compatibility, ensures increased assay throughput for laboratories needing low-volume assay formats
