1000 µL Channels


The 1000 µL Independent Channels are based on air displacement pipetting technology.

The pipette volumes range from 0.5 to 1000 µL. The channels support pipetting with disposable tips and/or steel needles. Disposable tips are available in four different sizes: 10, 50, 300, 1000 µL CO-RE tips. In conjunction with the needle wash station, reusable steel needles in the sizes of 10, 300 and 1000 µL are available. Movements in the Y (spreading) and Z (up and down) directions are independent. This provides the greatest flexibility to adapt to asymmetric labware positions and pipetting sequences. Up to 16 channels can be combined with any of Hamilton's multiprobe heads (96, 384 or Nano) on one and the same instrument.

Pressure and Capacitive Liquid Level Sensing—Each channel is equipped with its own pressure transducer and capacitance measuring circuitry. This allows it to measure liquid level either by pressure or capacitance or both. Pressure sensing is vital for measuring the liquid level of non-ionic liquids, supporting TADM and chain of custody.

Tip Type Detection—Each channel detects which tip type is being attached. If the tip type does not support the pipetting conditions set in the software script, the user is alerted. This ensures that liquid never accidentally enters the channel. 

Straight Alignment—Each channel uses Hamilton's CO-RE technology for tip attachment. An internal o-ring is expanded to assure a tight seal and straight alignment. Hamilton tips also are individually imaged during manufacturing for straightness. Together with the CO-RE tip attachment design, this makes sure the tip of each tip on channel is in the right position even for 1536 plate pipetting.
