FlexDrop iQ Non-contact Dispenser

The FlexDrop iQ Non-Contact Dispenser provides rapid, consistent, and flexible dispensing from up to 96-source positions into 96, 384, or 1536 well plates with a dead volume of less than 1 μL. 

  • Non-contact dispensing – eliminate carryover and cross-contamination
  • Dead volume < 1 µL – conserve valuable reagents in (i.e.) NGS or qPCR assays
  • 8 nL to mL dispense volume range, 80 uL max volume FlexDrop source plates
  • Fast – dispense 10 nL into 96 wells in 10 seconds, into 384 wells in 20 seconds
  • Smart - Simultaneously dispense from 1 to 8 wells (a column) to 96, 384 or 1536 well plates
  • Built-in droplet verification – verify liquid was dispensed
  • Multiple Liquid classes – including aqueous, DMSO (up to 100%), glycerol (up to 50%)
  • Automation compatible

Overview

The FlexDrop iQ platform redefines the user experience around nanoliter, low volume liquid handling automation, providing any laboratory with the means to consistently dispense as low as 8 nL with the push of a button in an easy-to-use device that runs from an integrated touch screen PC.

The FlexDrop iQ platform uses positive pressure in eight independent controlled channels. Each channel can dispense up to 100 droplets per second. It generates droplets between 8 nanoliters (nL) and 50 nL in size to achieve the target dispense volume. The system includes droplet verification, which verifies the exact number of droplets have been dispensed and provides a verification report post-run. The proprietary source well plate features 100 µm hole at the bottom which facilitates the droplets under positive pressure.

The touch-screen software control is seamless and simple to use. No previous programming or automation experience is needed. Users can set-up and start dispensing in minutes.

Includes:

  • FlexDrop iQ Instrument
  • (4) Power Cords (EU, UK, US, AU) Fuse change may be required.
  • Air tubing - 6mm tubing with Quick Connect to instrument and fitting to connect to house air or compressor
  • (4) Black adapter plates (1, 2, 4 and 8 mm) – for target plate heights
  • FlexDrop iQ Source Plates with 80 uL wells in startup kit
  • Waste PCR Tubes
Non-contact Supports Multiple Liquid Classes Flexible Speed Low dead Volume Built-in Droplet Verification

Droplets are dispensed directly into the target plate below the source plate via air. The FlexDrop iQ platform eliminates carryover and cross-contamination.

Dispenses multiple liquid classes on-demand including aqueous solutions, PCR buffer, DMSO (up to 100%) and glycerol (up to 50%) – and can defines liquid class at the well level.

Exchangeable destination tray supports dispensing into any SBS sized plate, including 96-, 384, and 1536-well plates

Dispense 10 nanoliters across a 96-well plate in 10 seconds

Dispense 10 nL across a 384-well plate in 20 seconds.

Well reservoir design ensures dead volume <1 uL to conserve valuable reagents and samples.

The FlexDrop iQ Non-Contact Dispenser incorporates droplet detection and the capability to detect when a plate runs out of source liquid.
