VIAFLO Handheld Microplate Processing

Life science labs are confronted with a growing need to process more samples in parallel without jeopardizing the quality of their results. At a certain point it becomes impossible to keep up the pace using traditional multichannel pipettes.

Yet, many users are hesitant to invest into automated liquid handling equipment because of the complexity and costs associated with such systems. INTEGRA’s VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 close the gap between traditional manual pipettes and robotic systems.

VIAFLO 96 is a handheld 96-channel pipette designed to fit on any lab bench. It introduces a new concept in 96-channel pipetting, which is affordable and as simple to use as a traditional handheld pipette.

VIAFLO 384 is an enhanced version of the successful VIAFLO 96 pipette. It offers the same intuitive operation but allows working with both 96- and 384-channel heads. Loading 384 tips naturally requires higher loading forces. The necessary instrument adaptions could be made without increasing the footprint or altering the compact design.
