Integrated Spring Cushion Technology to Get That Last Drop

In many reagent kits screw cap vials are used to supply small volumes of enzymes and other precious reagents. These often need to be kept at a low temperature until used in assays. These reagents are typically supplied with very little surplus volume which presents a challenge for automation. Using conventional tube holders, pipettors need to be carefully programmed to find the bottom of the tubes – a complicated task when working with individual probes on most liquid handlers.

POGO provides an innovative solution to the positioning problem with each of its 24 positions independently equipped with a spring-loaded tube support  to compensate for variations in Z-positioning of pipettors and ensuring your ability to get that last microliter while avoiding tip crashes and occlusions.
