Grooved Pin Liquid Transport System

     
 

The ultimate in ease and speed of liquid transfer
Precision grooves and capillary action determine the delivery volume
Save by eliminating pipette tips

     


               Applications

     
 
  • Make serial dilutions
  • Transfer liquids, cultures, RNA, DNA, or PCR reactions
  • Screen libraries
   


               Features

   
 
  • 96 stainless steel replicator pins
  • Precision grooves provide great pin to pin accuracy
  • Can be alcohol, water or bleach cleaned for rapid reuse
  • Light weight delrin base lessens handling fatigue
  • Sculpted delrin handle assures positive grip
  • Four "standoff adjustment bolts" determine pin depth, and keeps pin from touching plate bottom
  • Transfer volumes depend upon liquid surface tension

  Cleaning Pins

     
 

The most important aspect of using pin tools is to start with clean pins and then keep them clean so they will consistently deliver the same volume.  We recommend our Pin Cleaning Solution (VP 110) to clean the pin of protein and other residue buildup before you start an assay.  To quickly and efficiently remove the previous transfer from the pin we have a wide variety of manual and robot wash reservoirs ranging from disposable polypropylene reservoirs (VP 576D) to reusable wash reservoirs, flowing reservoirs and fountains to clean  96, 384 and 1536 pin tools.  The robot wash stations are also adapted so the blotting station is part of the washing station thus reducing the cleaning cycle time and the number of robot stations required for the cleaning process.  We also have other independent blotting stations (VP 540D) and VP 522.

Integral to the cleaning process of all pins is the blotting step between baths.  Lint particles in the slots or on pin tips, from standard paper towels, will interfere with the loading and unloading of liquid.  We have solved this problem.  The VP 540DB blotting system is a tray with the standard microplate foot print that contains a super absorbent polypropylene pad covered by a Lint Free Blotting Paper.  We strongly recommend that you use this or our other lint free blotting systems.
