MultiFlo FX Multi-Mode Dispenser

BioTek's microplate reagent dispensers incorporate two optimized fluid delivery technologies to address different liquid handling requirements. From milliliters down to one microliter, our reagent dispensers offer simple, repeatable and precise liquid delivery throughout their defined volume range.

MultiFlo FX Multi-Mode Dispenser

NuAire designs and custom engineers biological enclosures to your exact specifications for applications involving high-throughput robotic systems, large high-speed cell sorters, ultra-centrifuges, IV admixtures, CSP’s, antibiotics, automated compounding equipment, and laboratory equipment requiring specified product or personnel protection from potentially harmful aerosols and airborne particles.

MultiFlo™ FX is an automated multi-mode reagent dispenser for 6- to 1536-well microplates offering BioTek’s unique Parallel Dispense™ technology. Up to four independent reagents can be dispensed in parallel without potential carryover. MultiFlo FX becomes a versatile multi-mode dispenser with the addition of either the RAD™ technology for random access dispensing to 6- to 384-well plates or a wash module for 6- to 384-well plate washing. Fast, intuitive programming and operation are via the color touch screen user interface. A MultiFlo FX configured with either RAD technology or the wash module replaces up to five liquid handlers.
