FlexDrop iQ Non-Contact Dispenser

The FlexDrop iQ Non-Contact Dispenser provides rapid, consistent, and flexible dispensing from up to 96-source positions into 96, 384, or 1536 well plates with a dead volume of less than 1 μL.

  • Non-contact dispensing – eliminate carryover and cross-contamination
  • Dead volume < 1 µL – conserve valuable reagents in (i.e.) NGS or qPCR assays
  • 8 nL to mL dispense volume range, 80 or 500 µL max volume FlexDrop source plates
  • Fast – dispense 10 nL into 96 wells in 10 seconds, into 384 wells in 20 seconds
  • Smart - Simultaneously dispense from 1 to 8 wells (a column) to 96, 384 or 1536 well plates
  • Built-in droplet verification – verify liquid was dispensed
  • Multiple Liquid classes – including aqueous, DMSO (up to 100%), glycerol (up to 50%)
  • Automation compatible
For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Part Number: CLS155018
  • The FlexDrop iQ platform redefines the user experience around nanoliter, low volume liquid handling automation, providing any laboratory with the means to consistently dispense as low as 8 nL with the push of a button in an easy-to-use device that runs from an integrated touch screen PC.

    The FlexDrop iQ platform uses positive pressure in eight independent controlled channels. Each channel can dispense up to 100 droplets per second. It generates droplets between 8 nanoliters (nL) and 50 nL in size to achieve the target dispense volume. The system includes droplet verification, which verifies the exact number of droplets have been dispensed and provides a verification report post-run. The proprietary source well plate features 100 µm hole at the bottom which facilitates the droplets under positive pressure.

    The touch-screen software control is seamless and simple to use. No previous programming or automation experience is needed. Users can set-up and start dispensing in minutes.
