V&P's new 96 CHANNEL MANIFOLD  (VP 177AD) will fill your 96 well microplates with sterile growth media, buffers and other solutions.  Our single manifold delivery system makes plate filling very easy.  If you have been filling your plates with a 12 channel pipettor you will really appreciate the speed and simplicity of the 96 Channel Manifold.  Even labs with robotic work stations use the 96 Channel Manifold because it is easier to set up and 50 times faster than the robot and it is a ready replacement when the robot breaks down.  Robot labs also feel it is more efficient for their robot to do assays than fill plates.  At only a fraction of the cost of a robot, even the smallest labs can afford a 96 Channel Manifold plate filler.

The VP 177AD is very adaptable with a simple Z adjustment to accommodate both deep well and standard 96 well microplates.  Designed for high throughput filling of multiple microplates.   Just place over a plate and dispense the syringe.

The key elements of the VP 177AD dispenser are noted in the photo to the right.  A Luer inlet nipple is used to connect the Inlet Valve to the manifold.  When the syringe plunger is raised liquid is drawn from the source bottle through the Inlet Valve.  Depressing the plunger dispenses the liquid through the manifold. 

Priming the system is facilitated by a Burp Valve located strategically over the high point inside the manifold.

Cleaning the manifold is facilitated using a Quick Disconnect valve attached to a vacuum line.  When connected, the manifold contents are rapidly removed.  This ability greatly facilitates the cleaning process.

The three "Z" adjustment knobs allow the dispense tubes to be set at any height above a standard or deep well microplate.

The plate registration feature provides a simple but sure method of placing the dispense tubes in the wells.

The photo to the right illustrates a Quick Disconnect Valve which connects the manifold to a vacuum trap.  It is used to rapidly remove liquid from the manifold and facilitates the cleaning of the manifold between source liquids.  When the valve is disconnected it seals the system closed and permits dispensing.
 
 
 
The photo to the right is a bottom view of the VP 177AD's microplate registration system.  The adjustment bar illustrated in the photo can be set by the user into one of two positions.  The position illustrated positions the dispense tubes in the middle of the wells.  The second position allows the dispense tubes to be slid in the X axis so the dispense tube will touch the sides of the well and facilitate a "touch off" of dispensed liquid droplets.

***NEW*** The 96 Channel Manifold Microplate Filler VP 177AD-1

 
   
  • Rapid, fills both standard and 96 deep well plates in less than 3 seconds.

  • Simple filling of multiple plates by sliding plates under the manifold.

  • Adjustable in both Z and Y directions.

  • Z axis is spring loaded easy operation.

  • Can reposition dispense tubes to side of the wells

  • Inexpensive, uses disposable syringes.

  • Versatile, fill from 10 ul to 500 ul/well.

  • Compact, easy to use.

  • Uses 19 gauge tubing for anti-drip control.

  • No air bubbles in dispensed liquid.

  • Accommodates sterile media and reagent buffers (NO ORGANIC SOLVENTS*)

  • Quick clean system.

 
 


V&P's new 96 CHANNEL MANIFOLD  (VP 177AD-1) will fill your 96 well microplates with sterile growth media, buffers and other solutions.  The VP 177AD-1 differs from the VP 177AD in that the plates are slid in under the manifold instead of placing the manifold on top on the plate.  Our spring loaded manifold delivery system makes plate filling very easy. 

The VP 177AD-1 is very adaptable with a simple Z adjustment to accommodate both deep well and standard 96 well microplates.  Designed for high throughput filling of multiple microplates.  

 
 
 


The key liquid handling elements of the VP 177AD-1 dispenser are the same as described for the VP 177AD above.  A Luer inlet nipple is used to connect the Inlet Valve to the manifold.  When the syringe plunger is raised liquid is drawn from the source bottle through the Inlet Valve.  Depressing the plunger dispenses the liquid through the manifold. 

The major difference between the two is that the plates are slid under the manifold as opposed to placing the manifold over the plate.

Three "Z" adjustment stops allow the dispense tubes to be set at any height above a standard or deep well microplate.  The manifold is held up by 3 springs and is pushed down to the Z stop prior to dispensing. 

The plate slider/registration feature provides a simple but sure method of placing the dispense tubes in the center of the wells and then reposition the pins to edges of wells.

*This product has not been tested with all types of solutions, for example, those containing or comprised of various detergents and/or organic solvents. If your application includes these types of solutions, preliminary testing may be needed.

VP 177AD-1-72A

     
 


The VP 177AD-1-72A was designed to deliver small volumes onto membranes.  The spacing between the cannulas is 9 mm.  A special carrier was constructed to hold the membrane and register it to the dispenser.

 
 
     
 
     
 
     
 



  VP 179A Jig with Dispensing Manifolds

     
 


The VP 179A Microplate Positioning Jig provides a very flexible platform for registering microplates to dispensing and aspiration manifolds.  The designation of "J" in the part number of a VP 178 (96) or VP 179 (384)  dispense manifold indicate that it is Jig compatible.  The VP 179A provides the mechanism to adjust the X, Y or Z position of manifold tubes to many different microplates.  Polypropylene microplates are very difficult to make to exact tolerances because the plates shrink as they cool out of the mold.  As each microplate manufacture may produce microplates with slight differences in dimension, it is often desirable to have the ability to precisely align the manifold to the microplate.  This is especially true if you are trying to dispense culture media and not disturb a monolayer on the well bottom or magnetic beads attracted to the sides of the well.

The difference between the VP 179BJD and the VP 179BJD-PLUS is the 2 to 10 ml (VP 195D-1) or the 10 ml to 59 ml (VP 195K) bottle top dispenser which are both resistant to organic solvents and capable of precision delivery.  (The syringe valve on the VP 179BJD is sensitive to organic solvents.)  Also the reproducibility of the bottle top dispenser is better than "eye balling" a syringe.  If you already have a bottle top dispenser you may use it with our VP 179BJD to make it a  VP 179BJD-PLUS.

Ordering information: In order to get a complete system you must order the 3 parts separately - a VP 179A Jig, a VP 179BJD dispenser and either a VP 195D-1 2-10 ml Bottle top dispenser, or a VP 195K 10-59 ml Bottle Top Dispenser.

*This product has not been tested with all types of solutions, for example, those containing or comprised of various detergents and/or organic solvents. If your application includes these types of solutions, preliminary testing may be needed.

V&P's MULTI-SPENSE will fill your 384 or 96 well microplates and deep well plates with sterile media or other solutions.  Our double wand delivery system coupled with our indent fill stations makes plate filling very easy.  If you have been filling your plates with a 12 channel pipetter you will really appreciate the speed and simplicity of the MULTI-SPENSE.  Even labs with robotic work stations use the MULTI-SPENSE because it is easier to set up and 10 times faster than the robot and it is a ready replacement when the robot breaks down.  Robot labs also feel it is more efficient for their robot to do assays than fill plates.  At only a fraction of the cost of a robot, even the smallest labs can afford a MULTI-SPENSE.  An acrylic hood, to prevent airborne contaminates, is provided with each MULTI-SPENSE system.
