Features and Benefits

Precision Pipetting

The Microlab VANTAGE uses air displacement pipetting to achieve superior measurement accuracy. Additionally, Hamilton pipette channels and tips are designed to fit precisely together using a patented lock-and-key design called CO-RE (Compressed O-Ring Expansion). This creates a tight seal with precise tip alignment to eliminate tip distortion and ensure the highest accuracy during liquid handling steps. Optional anti-droplet control and liquid level detection technologies further safeguard sample and results integrity.

Modular Architecture

The convenience of a modular architecture means that users can conveniently select modules specific to their application and upgrade at any time as their needs evolve.

  • Pipettor: Customize the number of pipetting arms, channels, and transport options
  • Logistics Cabinet: Storage, waste, device integration, Entry/Exit below-deck transport space
  • Track Gripper: Transportation between the Pipettor and Logistics Cabinet as well as third-party instruments
  • Rear Integration Cabinet: Extensive storage and device integration space

Integrated Tools and Accessories

With a flexible deck layout, the Microlab VANTAGE accommodates a broad range of tools and accessories to further enhance assay flexibility.

  • Internal Plate Gripper (IPG)
  • Hamilton Heater Shaker (HHS)
  • [MPE]2 positive pressure module
  • Much more

Powerfully Optimized Software

Microlab VANTAGE’s powerful software, INSTINCT V, allows users to design and optimize assays and workflows from simple to complex without compromising requirements. Users may choose between an intuitive drag-and-drop interface or text-based programming to suit personal preference. Preview simulations at user-selected speeds, and schedule activities for maximum system and workflow efficiency.

Confidence through Sample Tracking

The Microlab VANTAGE uses barcode scanners to track samples in labware, and tracking information may be exported for detailed history reports.

Protecting Users and Data

The Microlab VANTAGE enclosed housing uses sensor-controlled door locks to prevent user injuries and safeguard samples from environmental contaminants. Software is 21 CFR part 11 compliant to prevent data manipulation and loss.
