The pipette volumes ranging from 50 µL to 5 mL. The channels use 5 mL disposal tips which incorporate the same CO-RE tip attachment as all Microlab STAR channels. 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 8 channels can be attached to a single arm and combined with any of Hamilton's multiprobe heads (96, 384 or Nano) on one and the same system.
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 by pressure, capacitance or both. Pressure sensing is vital for measuring the liquid level of non-ionic liquids, supporting TADM and chain of custody.
