The ML500 Control Software allows for the connection of any ML500 B/C Series instrument to be connected to a PC via a standard serial port. If the computer is not equipped with a serial port a USB to Serial adapter must be purchased.
Method wizards are provided to quickly write aliquot dispense, serial
dispense and dilution methods. Create custom wizards by assigning
variables to the volume, speed and delay fields. An Emulation mode
is provided to program and test methods while the instrument is
in use or disconnected.
Additional Pump Capabilities
Increase the programmable resolution of an ML500 from 0.1% to 0.05%
of the full syringe volume. Loop the entire method or a single element
continuously or for a specified number of times. Use the dispense
counter to track tube or well numbers during repetitive dispenses.
Integrate the ML500 into an automated system using a delay or a
digital start signal that can be sent and received from third party
devices through the TTL port.
Expandable Liquid Handling
The software is capable of running the ML510, ML530, ML540, ML560
and the serial MVP (modular valve positioner). Daisy chain up to
16 instruments to accomplish a series of tasks within a method.
Simultaneously run independent methods by attaching the units to
different serial ports. Over 20 different valve configurations are
supported when using the ML560 and an MVP.
Operating System and Computer Requirements
The software is designed for computers running Microsoft Windows
XP with service pack 2. The computer must have an existing or emulated
serial port connection for proper communication with the ML500 or
