Pipetting Tips

Non-contact Micro Dispensers work on any Substrate Surface

The Nano-PlotterTM piezoelectric pipetting tips for the Picolitre range consist of glass and silicon- they are valveless and fabricated from microstructured glass/silicon wafers. Alternatively the instrument is available with solenoid valve dispensers for the Nanolitre range.

The tips interface with the instrument’s fluidic system through metal shafts. Each pipet connects to a dedicated syringe that supplies both sample and washing fluids. All N2.x instruments can be equipped with 1-16 tips in any combination.

Due to the nature of non-contact dispensing the Nano-Plotter supports so called Spot-On-the-Fly mode (SOF, since 2017) for microarraying applications with only one drop per spot position. Particularly when processing a larger number of flat substrates (E.g. glass slides) SOF saves up to 50% time.
