year brings new advances in technologies for analyzing proteins, small
molecules, metals, radioactivity, and many other applications. As
detection methods continue to improve, other factors are exposed that
limit the accuracy and precision of these quantitative methods, with
consistency of sample preparation ranking amongst the top of the
limiting factors. The Microlab 600 is designed to address this issue by
minimizing variation in sample preparation while reducing the total time
How does the Microlab 600 minimize variation and time spent on sample preparation?
ML600 is a positive displacement system that is not susceptible to
variations in atmospheric pressure like traditional air displacement
pipettes. Diluting, pipetting, aliquoting, and titrating methods are
stored in the system and recalled prior to use, ensuring that the same
method is always executed. By automating the pipetting functionality,
the technique-dependent variability is minimized. The user simply
triggers the hand probe to aspirate or dispense the liquid.
