Automation Tips for Dynamic Devices Lynx and Oasis by Fluotics

Fluotics manufactures a complete selection of automation tips for Dynamic Devices™ Lynx and Oasis liquid handlers. Our Agilent 384 and Tecan 96 automation tips are directly interchangeable with Dynamic Devices 96 or 384 multi-channel heads.

DYNAMIC DEVICES LYNX AND OASIS AUTOMATION TIPS – SELECTION

Fluotics offers a complete selection of Dynamic Devices compatible robotic pipette tips. Available in a variety of tip volumes, with or without filters, for Lynx and Oasis liquid handling workstations. Our pipette tips encompass both 96 and 384 well formats, giving you the flexibility to access plate densities ranging from 96 to 1536 wells. 

Specifically, we offer the following pipette tip types with their corresponding volume ranges:

Agilent P10 automation tip   | 10 µL working volume, 16 x 24 tip array (384 format)

Agilent P30 automation tip   | 30 µL working volume, 16 x 24 tip array (384 format)

Agilent P70 automation tip   | 70 µL working volume, 16 x 24 tip array (384 format)

Tecan MCA P50 automation tip | 50 µL working volume, 8 x 12 tip array (96 format)

Tecan MCA P200 automation tip | 200 µL working volume, 8 x 12 tip array (96 format)

 

COMPATIBILITY

Fluotics designed its Agilent and Tecan automation tips to also be compatible with Dynamic Devices Lynx and Oasis. A separate labware definition is not necessary and the end user does not need to modify their existing automation control software protocols. 

QUALITY AND RELIABILITY

Our goal is complete assurance and confidence in the quality of our Dynamic Devices compatible automation tips.

To this end our pipette tips are manufactured within a highly controlled environment using sophisticated production processes. Our automation pipette tips begin with careful design, testing and validation of molds using advanced tooling techniques. Production processes are fully integrated with multiple quality control steps at each stage. Each tip not only undergoes automated machine vision inspection for straightness and uniformity, but also functional performance checks of each tip lot.

Functional performance is tested on the identical instruments that our customers use and include standalone instruments (Dynamic Devicer Lynx and Oasis) and integrated workstation components such as stackers. Performance testing includes accuracy and precision testing (% coefficient of variation, CV) for each lot using ANSI/SBS standard microwell plates. Additional functional testing includes (but is not limited to):

– Tip capacity

– Tip liquid level and retention (using H2O, EtOH, and DMSO)

– Tip liquid residual quantification

– Tip loading and unloading

– Tip length (physical and effective)

– Tip curvature (high density microwell plate access)

Common concerns such as static buildup are also addressed during the production processes where rigorous anti-static measures are implemented. By applying these strict quality control procedures, the tightest dimensional and performance tolerances are achieved allowing us to guarantee consistently accurate and precise pipetting

 

GUARANTEE

When you choose Fluotics, we know your decision is more than a financial one. It’s also an implicit trust in us and our products. Consequently, our aim is to provide you with the best experience imaginable. When you purchase Fluotics’ products they are always fully and unconditionally guaranteed to perform to your expectations. 

 

MATERIALS

Fluotics produces its automation tips from the highest grade virgin polypropylene available. We use ultra-polishing techniques with our pipet tips to ensure low liquid retention without the use of releasing agents or other additives which have been shown to be problematic in certain assays (John Watson et al., 2009). Furthermore, our 384 format Agilent Bravo and Agilent VPrep compatible tip boxes are produced from a conductive carbon impregnated polypropylene polymer to dissipate any static buildup.

 

APPLICATIONS

From simple liquid transfers to complex multi-step assay protocols, Fluotics’ Dynamic Devices compatible robotic tips are used in an array of liquid handling protocols. Our automation tips are used daily worldwide by scientists to perform compound management, lead discovery, assay development, next generation sequencing (NGS), and other important functions.

Whether the application is plate to plate transfer, single tip hit picking or serial dilution you can have full confidence that Fluotics’ tips will consistently meet and exceed expectations.

Some publications describing Fluotics’ pipette tips are available in our Library.

 

QUANTITIES

Both our Agilent and Tecan compatible automation tips are packaged in case quantities of 50 tip boxes per case. Custom packaging and tip formats are available upon request. Please contact us at info@fluotics.com
