Bubble Paddle Reservoir mixing systems (US Patent #6,461,034 European and other patents pending) provide a very simple and inexpensive way of keeping resins, assay beads, SPA beads, glass beads and cells in suspension while they are being pipetted to microplate wells.  The Bubble Paddle design also ensures a homogeneous suspension in all quadrants of the reservoir to ensure  reproducible results are obtained.   Because reagents are very expensive it is also important to do this with the smallest dead volume possible.   The bottom of the Bubble Paddle reservoirs are designed to minimize dead volume. Whether you are using a 4 tip, an 8 tip, a 96 tip or 384 tip pipetting head, we have a mixing reservoir for you.  These Bubble Paddle Reservoirs are powered by our Alligator Tumble stirrers.

Magnetic Clutch Bubble Paddle Reservoirs are powered by thier own motor via a magnetic clutch.  They have the unique ability to stir suspensions even as the pipet tips remove the cells or beads from the bottom of the reservoir.  This, coupled with the very small dead volume in the bottom of the reservoir, makes this system uniquely suited to resuspending particulate specimens during the pipetting operation.  The magnetic clutch and motor are very powerful as they will stir solutions as viscous as honey at 4 degrees C. 

To the left you can view 2 clips of the clutch drive bubble paddle.

In order to stir magnetic beads you can not use any method that employs magnetism, magnetic drives or magnetic clutches because the beads will be attracted to them and taken out of solution.  As magnetic beads have become more popular in a variety of assays, a non-magnetic method to keep them uniformly  suspended is required.  The VP 767-1  and VP 758-1 with its' sealed drive shaft eliminates the need for magnetic clutches or drive magnets.  Problem solved!  The pipet depressions on the bottom of the reservoir also reduces the waste of these precious reagents.

As the trend towards assay miniaturization continues with increasing demands to make nanoliter transfers, here is a simple way to convert either a 96 or a 384 Well Pipetting System or plate handler into a pin tool work station that will deliver from 2 nl to 5 ul using 96, 384 or 1,536 pin tools.   We have developed 2 basic floating pin tool styles (E-clip and Tube type) and now can mount them to a variety of robot pipetting systems and microplate handling systems.  Our standard mounting plates allow all our pin tools to be easily attached to over 34 other Robot pipetting systems or to microplate handling systems.

CyBio/Matrix Adapter to turn a  CYBi-Well or a Matrix PlateMate™ Pipetting System into a Pin Tool Work Station*

As the trend towards assay miniaturization continues with increasing demands to make nanoliter transfers, here is a simple way to convert either a 96 or a 384 CyBi Well Pipetting System into a 96, 384 or 1,536 pin tool work station that will deliver from 2 nl to 5 ul.  You can easily switch back and forth between the Pipetting System and the pin tool by just exchanging the adaptor for the tip manifold.

Instead of spinning a magnetic stir bar about the horizontal plane like the typical magnetic flask stirrer, the Alligator Tumble Stirrer causes stir elements of all sizes and shapes to tumble vertically end-over-end inside each well, like an alligator "tumbles" its prey.  The Alligator Tumble Stirrer will stir all types of microplates (24, 48, 96, 384 and even 1536 wells).  It will also stir V and U bottom microplates, PCR plates, micro-centrifuge tubes and test tubes, bottles and special designed troughs and reservoirs.  The ability to also stir in troughs and reservoirs is useful when pipetting cells, beads or particulates into microplates as it is essential to have them resuspended evenly.

The STIR STIX are always longer than the diameter of the vessel they are in, so they can't tumble but move back and forth providing a very vigorous stirring action at the top and bottom of the liquid.  This vigorous action has several advantages in stirring tall vials, deep well blocks and test tubes.

This video demonstrates our VP 779-13 and VP 779-5 Magnetic Tumble Stirrer mixing honey (viscosity - 10,000 to 15,000 centistokes) and dye.
 

The disc design of the VP 779 series makes them significantly more efficient at  moving liquid and thereby mixing solution in the tumble mode.  Selecting a disc that is slightly smaller than the inside diameter of the vessel to be stirred results in the most efficient stirring.  To stir viscous material requires greater energy so we constructed these disc from Samarium Cobalt and encapsulated them with PTFE to make them inert.
 

The VP 779-5 (5 mm diameter)  was designed to fit into 96 well microplates and the VP 779-13 (13 mm diameter) was designed to fit into many vials.  If your application requires a different diameter let us know.

Manually picking colonies from an agar plate or re-arraying a genomic library in microplates one toothpick at a time is a very slow and tedious task and can lead to repetitive motion injuries. We have invented a simple hand tool that reduces the repetitive motion by a factor of twelve and greatly accelerates the picking and placement process.  It also eliminates the difficulty of handling toothpicks aseptically.  This video will demonstrate the ease use the VP 373 Colony Picker and the VP 416 Colony Rack.
