Designed to enable labs to process samples simply and productively the INTEGRA VIAFLO 384 is a handheld 384-channel electronic pipette that enables precise transfer of 384 samples simultaneously. The VIAFLO 384 offers increased sample throughput as well as lower sample and reagent use without the expense of having to invest in a robotic liquid handling system. The VIAFLO 384 comes with a choice of two 384-channel pipetting heads covering the volume ranges of 0.5 -12.5 µl and 5 - 125 µl. The new system is fully compatible with VIAFLO 96-channel pipetting heads enabling easy switching between 96-channel and 384-channel pipetting using the same unit. It has been designed to be used just like a standard handheld pipette. Therefore, no special skills or training are required to operate it. Servo assisted motor steering ensures that operating the VIAFLO 384 is both effortless and precise. The VIAFLO 384 features the company's Touch Wheel pipette user interface enabling programming of a wide range of pipetting modes including repeat dispense, serial dilute and mixing routines. The VIAFLO 384 comes with 10 pre-defined pipetting modes enabling the system to be used productively almost immediately. A further 20 user designated custom programs allow even the most diverse and complex pipetting operations. The VIAFLO 384 can be connected to a PC with VIALINK software enabling custom program exchange and firmware upgrades.
