The laboratory manual pipetting market is currently dominated by air displacement handheld mechanical pipettors. However, air displacement pipettes are relatively poor at both accurately and precisely displacing sub-microliter volumes as well as poor at delivering these volumes to their targets. For most applications of sub-microliter dispensing with an air displacement pipettor, "touch- off" contact dispensing is the only means of delivery.
The AD1010 liquid dispenser brings the patented AD1010 non-contact dispensing technology to handheld laboratory pipetting applications. The AD1010 is a handheld, simple to use, version of the dispensers found in BioDot's series of automated platforms. This handheld dispenser is ideal for any laboratory application where dispense volumes in the low microliter range or less are required. Compared to air displacement handheld pipettors the AD1010 offers:
- Significantly better precision and accuracy at low volumes
- Extremely effective drop ejection for high speed dispensing
- Wide dynamic range of dispense volumes in a single dispenser
- Unrivaled low-end volume capability; down to 50 nL
