Low Binding Products
Automated, high-precision pipetting system specifically designed for low volume liquid handling; easy-to-use and affordable
Available in the following colours
"40% reagent costs and 50% labour costs were saved by adopting the 4LAB™ and 384-well PCR microplates in our SNP assay project which extended to 1 year... ...the 4LAB™ provided the high accuracy and precision we needed."
4titude's® 4LAB™ is an automated, high-precision pipetting system specifically designed for low-volume liquid handling. For acceptable PCR results, small volumes of reagents need to be dispensed accurately and consistently, which is tedious, time consuming and prone to human error.
It is available as a 4-position and a 6-position workstation.
4LAB™ is designed to replace manual PCR/qPCR sample preparation. Accuracy, precision and consistency are guaranteed, and reagent wastage is reduced. Unlike complex, multi-purpose robotic systems, our instrument was designed for the researcher without prior robotic experience.
Intuitive set up and programming will save your laboratory time and money straight away.
Figure 1: Excellent Serial Dilution Results
7 µl NIH3T3 Cell cDNA sample is diluted in 21 µl water at 1:4 ratio for 4 times.Roche® LightCycler® 480 real-time thermal cycler and Finnzyme DyNAmo® Flash SYBR® Green qPCR kit (F-415L) were used.
Figure 2: Better Precision Results than Manual Pipetting
Target: Human GAPDH (top curve) was amplified in replicates of 4. 18 µl (master-mix) and 2 µl (cDNA) were pipetted into 20 µl reaction volume. Roche LightCycler® 480 real-time thermal cycler and Invitrogen Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase were used.
50 µl Tip on single or 8-channel pipetting module
200 µl Tip on single or 8-channel pipetting module
Note: According to ISO-8655 standards (Gravimetric method), APM is calibrated in temperature (21-25 °C, ±0.5%) and humidity (60-90%) controlled environment. Twice-distilled water, robotic tips and microbalance were used.
