The Microlab 600 Dual Syringe Diluter

The Microlab 600 is a highly precise syringe pump with a graphical user interface designed to quickly and easily dilute and dispense liquids. This positive displacement system provides better than 99% accuracy. The inert fluid path minimizes sample carry over and improves compatibility with harsh chemicals. Air displacement systems trap compressible air in the fluid path. When liquid is moved this air is compressed, causing results that vary with atmospheric conditions, sample viscosity, and the operator's technique.

Additional Information

Could your lab use a more reliable and cost effective solution to sample preparation?

Traditional air displacement pipettes are susceptible to variations in atmospheric pressure, viscosity, vapor pressure, etc. Class A glassware is labor intensive and wasteful. The Microlab 600 is the answer to these problems.

Positive Displacement vs. Air Displacement

The Microlab 600 is completely primed with liquid making it a positive displacement system. The liquid is not compressible, so each time the syringe aspirates or dispenses, the liquid is accurately measured. Air displacement systems trap compressible air in the fluid path. When liquid is moved this air is compressed, causing results that vary with atmospheric conditions, sample viscosity, and the operator's technique.

How does a Diluter work?

The Microlab 600's Dual Syringe Diluter configuration uses two syringes to create up to a 1:50,000 dilution in a single step, drastically reducing preparation time and wasted reagent. The diluent washes the tubing between each sample, minimizing carryover.
